Are You Struggling With Sexual Identity?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Sexual Identity

A person struggling with their sexual identity may be questioning their sexual orientation or who they are attracted to sexually. Common ways to describe sexual orientation include straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, and asexual. This list isn’t comprehensive, and each person has their way of describing their sexual identity. People who don’t identify as straight may face discrimination due to their marginalized status. Therapy is a safe space for people to open up and explore what they think they may want to identify as.

Available Treatment Options

Counseling interventions for people questioning their sexual identity include reflective interventions, such as self-reflection, journaling, role-plays, or imagining scenarios and processing how they would react. Therapists can also employ cognitive interventions to help people process emotions and thoughts surrounding their sexual identity.
