Gay couples counseling services

The difficulty of negotiating life as a deeply attached couple may be greater for same-sex couples than for straight couples. Everyone faces challenges in life but being gay frequently adds to the stress because of things like prejudice, anxiety, identity problems, and low self-esteem. Several issues that face gay and lesbian couples can deeply affect the relationship.

Gay couples counseling is an effective resource to set your relationship back on track and address mental health concerns. Like all couples, same sex couples benefit from efficient, customized, and research-based treatment to improve their emotional connection and relationship. Going to couples therapy can be intimidating but receiving care and guidance in a compassionate and non-judgmental setting helps partners reveal more of what is going on in their relationship and what concerns they have with their partner.

Lesbian couples counseling

Lesbian couples counseling can be a profound help to same-sex couples dealing with normal relationship issues. However, there may be additional issues specific to being gay that impact the relationship. Sex clearly delineates the boundaries in a heterosexual relationship. But since there is no such distinction in gay relationships, it can lead to jealousy and insecurity. 

Furthermore, there could be varying degrees of comfort with being ‘out’ among the partners. One person may not be comfortable touching or kissing in public or in front of family, and this can become an area of conflict. Lesbian couples are also exposed to prejudice and discrimination that creates a stressful social or works environment. As a result, there may be increased stress and anxiety that causes other mental health problems.

How counseling for gay couples can help?

When it comes to relationships, a certain amount of conflict is normal but the way the situation is handled is what makes the difference between a healthy, lasting relationship and one that ends bitterly. Counseling for gay couples is highly beneficial in handling disparities in how people approach accepting their sexual identity and deal with prejudice and other people’s unfavorable attitudes towards their relationships which is particularly difficult when it causes conflict with family members or other significant individuals. 

Additionally, an impartial therapist can assist the couple in agreeing on a level of physical and emotional openness and monogamy that is acceptable to both partners. Counseling helps define and set boundaries, and discuss parenting issues, and responsibilities regarding gender roles. Couples can also openly discuss sexual issues that are harming the relationship.

I was recommended by a friend who said this place has helped her a lot. I was hesitant because of my experience with previous psychiatrists. But Janice is great. She really pays attention to my concerns, and I have been feeling such a sense of well being since having serviced with her. She is also extremely consistent. Sometimes our session lasts about 20 minutes or less because I hardly have any concerns regarding my medications. I appreciate her ability to really prescribe things that help long term. She also prescribed sleeping meds for my insomnia and I been sleeping earlier and better. I don’t wake up tired of weak. Thank you Janice 🙂

Dr. V. Rudoy is a wonderful doctor. Very professional and attentive. I have been seeing him for psychiatric care for a number of years and highly recommend him and this office in general. I’ve seen other psychiatric professionals who work with Dr. Rudoy here on occasion and they are all very competent and warm-hearted.

I have seen many many psychiatrists and Dr. Natalie Rimar is really as good as they come in this field. She is very well versed in the medical field and she gives you the time and attention every patient deserves as opposed to just going to any psychiatrist them giving just 5 minutes of their time and saying ok will RX you XYZ medication I sent it to your pharmacy goodbye. Dr. Rimar actually cares about her clients and takes her profession very seriously. Thank you Again!

I met with Mary Parker, a nurse practioner. She was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. After asking questions about my history, she discussed different treatment possibilities. I was happy with the session and look forward to meeting with her again on a regular basis
