8. Sexual Orientation Issues
Many of us come into the world knowing we are heterosexual, that is we are attracted to the opposite sex. However, when orientation is in question a person experiences nervousness, confusion, and inner turmoil. “Am I Gay? Lesbian? Bi-sexual? _ What does this mean? What do I do?” This is some of the internal dialogue that surrounds orientation issues.
Also some people need help going through the “coming-out” process; this can be scary. Therapy offers a neutral and supportive environment to assist an individual in identifying their position and needs as far as orientation is concerned.
