I just recently came out to my partner of 12 years after suffering from severe anxiety and depression for the last 5 months. She is trying to be supportive but I am experiencing a lot of shame and guilt. Does anyone know a good therapist that specializes in this? I need help.

Hey there Damian, thanks for reaching out to the DALE community. What you’re going through is something many of us here have gone through - and it’s hard. But you’re definitely not alone!
We have a number of referrals listed in the ‘Support’ tab at the top of the page that you can choose from which are arranged by which state you reside in (plus a few national hotlines). All of these referrals will have experience talking about what you’re going through so you’ll be in good hands! I can recommend GAMMA (NSW), Thorne Harbour Health (VIC) Switchboard (VIC/TAS) and SAMESH (SA) in particular.
Please feel free to reach out anytime.
I'm not in Australia unfortunately, so I was looking for online options. Do you know if any of those referrals provide that service? I checked but couldn't find any.
