While gays and lesbians have achieved many gains in the social, political and cultural spheres in recent years, widespread discrimination continues to exist. If you sometimes feel alone and unable to overcome the obstacles that homophobia places in your way, maybe counseling can help. Many, many gays and lesbians have found a way to live authentically and with integrity, transcending the bigotry and hatred they encounter.

Gays and lesbians are vulnerable to the same pressures and stressors as other groups. Additionally, they face unique challenges. Common treatment issues for this population include the following:

· Coming out issues
· Discrimination
· Self-Acceptance
· Self-Esteem
· Gender Confusion
· Couples Counseling
· Depression
· Shame and Guilt
