I Get Your Struggle
My name is Leah Donato MSW, LCSW and I am a therapist at LCD Counseling Services, LLC. As a lesbian, I understand the internal conflict of recognizing one’s sexuality and seeking acceptance with family and friends. I also recognize the difficulties for families who may not have been emotionally prepared for a child or family member to come out to them. Coming out is a critical time for many LQBTQ youth and their families. As a mother and spouse, I understand the complex issues of same sex relationships and the challenges children face being raised in same sex families. We all have struggles at different times in our lives; when you are a member of a minority the struggles can seem more daunting. My life experiences, coupled with my clinical training, have helped me help many when they feel stuck.
