Group therapy is also the perfect place to learn how you come across to others.
When you join the group, members will give you their first impressions of you.
In it, we address the childhood and societal wounds that can contribute to suppressing vital parts of your true sexuality.
The intent of the group therapy is to provide a safe, supportive atmosphere where gay men can begin to heal conflicts and issues dealing with their parents, their family, sexual abuse (both overt and covert), addictions (substance and behavioral), and other trauma that can contribute to internalized homophobia and sexual shame.
