Adultescent girl; parents going through a divorce; deceived by dominant Lesbian helped with counseli

Our experience was successful.  Counseling helped a troubled adultescent who thought she was a lesbian.  She was pursued by a very friendly dominant lesbian into a relationship.  The lesbian actually had her come to her house overnight.  

Counseling helped the young girl to understand that this was not the time to be making such an important decision about her sexuality.  She was going through a painful time with her parents and needed counseling for that.

Having a dominant lesbian "be there" for her during this painful time was aggressive.    The young girl broke off the relationship after being counseled.

Today she is married with two beautiful children.
