Same-Sex Couples Counseling
Every relationship requires some work, and often, problems can arise that present the need of a professional to help individuals work through them. From a lack of communication to issues with infidelity, a vast number of issues may require a couple to seek counseling.
However, for same-sex couples, the primary concern may be the fact that a counselor may not understand their lifestyle, and that the experience may in fact end up being more damaging than conducive to healing. With heterosexuality being the “norm” in society, it can indeed be difficult for same-sex couples to find a counselor that can meet their needs without making unnecessary assumptions.
There is also the pressure on same-sex couples from their families and society, wherein parents may impose certain religious or cultural expectations and hopes on them, and not being able to meet those can create quite the psychological struggle.
