George Turner, certified sex therapist, speaks at PFLAG: Coming Out: A Journey of Worthiness

George Turner, LSCSW/LCSW, certified sex therapist at Turner Professional Group, ( will present Coming Out: A Journey of Worthiness at the next PFLAG program on Oct. 9, 3pm at Village Presbyterian Church. Coming Out is a life-changing and life-long journey that begins when you first realize that you are gay, lesbian bisexual, or transgender… and utter the possibility of being LGBT to yourself. The act of coming out of the closet is not a single event but rather has many acts; and it is also a journey that our straight allies travel. For allies, coming out and defending LGBT persons can be just as difficult.

George shares that learning to live OUT is a process often clouded with shame. Removing that mask of shame and giving voice to your true authentic self is often traveled in incremental steps forward with painful retreats backwards. George will explore how coming out is but one journey that is essentially the universal search for worthiness; a desire to be valued, respected and loved! Participants both LGBT persons and their allies will learn about the coming out process; and most importantly both seasoned travelers and those just beginning their journey will enrich their journey by learning how to better deal with the unique challenges faced in their adventure.
