do you know a psychiatrist in georgia
« on: March 30, 2009, 10:51:10 PM »

Does anyone knows how can I find a psychiatrist that deal with Gay issues in the State of Georgia. I will really feel more confortable with psychiatirst that has experience dealing with gays. My insurance company has a list of providers but they do not said if they deal with gay issues.

Tony -- you should ask your local AIDS service organization for a referral.  They'll probably know of some gay-friendly shrinks.

I'll second focusing on "gay friendly" and not just "gay" -- my current shrink is straight but has been working with HIV+ people since he was 16 and did volunteer work before going into college to get his degree.  I talk about butt fucking during sessions and he doesn't even blink.

But if for your own comfort level you really need a psychologist that is gay then maybe that's how you should start out.  My first one 8 years ago was gay.  Is your medical doctor gay?  If so he most likely has a handful of referrals.
