Congratulations on doing the foot-work in your search for help with the issues associated with sexual abuse.
As for your dilemna, I can only share my experience, which seems somewhat similar to what you have found so far.
From my perspective, I took the advice about finding a therapist who specifically was experienced in sexual abuse survivors.....and then added the words..."if possible." That is a therapist with experience would be the ideal but if that was not available to me, which is wasn't, then do the next right thing.
For me that meant going through the GLBT counseling center and finding a gay male counselor with some small experience in working with survivors of sexual abuse, who was also willing to learn and progress along with me as we worked together.
I knew this guy already from being in a gay mens therapy group with him as the facilitator and felt comfortable with him. He read and studied and consulted his supervising therapist and together we have made great strides.
I am still seeing him, now more for some of the sort of collateral problems associated with the sexual abuse, such as phobias etc.
Remember that if you start out with a therapist and find that it's just not good for you, for no matter what reason, you have the option and the responsibility to let him/her know and move on.
We do get to change our minds!
So, my suggestion? Maybe get an appointment with the supervisor of therapy there at the GLBT counselling center and ask them if they know of a therapist who would be a good candidate.
So many gay men have been sexually abused, it would be a great service for the community if they were to find a therapist willing to learn and grow into that role.
You might consider asking Ken for his suggestions. This is just what has worked out for me.
Once again, I applaud your willingness and courage in pursuing the help you need. Your efforts are very inspiring.
Hope this helps,
