Gay and lesbian couples face the same relationship challenges as heterosexual couples: communication issues, lack of sex and intimacy, unresolved anger and lack of closeness.
Couples Counseling for Gay and Lesbian Couples
Gay and lesbian couples may deal with additional stressors, including stigma, conflicting norms and expectations, and lack of family support. Couples counseling for gay and lesbian partners can help clarify issues specific to same-sex couples. What you can, and should, expect from a skillful therapist is an added awareness and sensitivity to challenges unique to same-sex couples.
