Sexual Orientation & Coming Out

It is estimated that approximately 10% of the population identifies as LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, and Allied) in the United States. Over the last 20-years, people who identify as something other than heterosexual have had an easier time communicating with friends and relatives because of the increased acceptance of peoples’ rights to choose who they love. Still, for some, coming out to family members and friends is extremely difficult. Talking to a therapist or a coach about your anxieties with coming out may help you to freely communicate your sexual orientation or your sexual identity with those you love. With your new-found freedom, you might decide to educate a few others such as religious organizations, perhaps your place of business.

What to Expect in Therapy for Coming Out

If you need help with expressing your sexual orientation to others, you can have a therapist or coach be there for you to talk to by either voice chat or by video chat, at any time of the day or night. You can access a therapist or a coach from anywhere you are. With over one-thousand different therapists and coaches to choose from, you are bound to find a therapist or coach you feel comfortable with to discuss your anxieties about coming out to friends, family, potential partners, workplace relationships, and religious organizations.
