HOCD is an: unofficial term for OCD that focuses on fear of being homosexual. A therapist who specializes in OCD would be a good person to see. OCD symptoms can manifest in many fears and topics. OCD is at the root. You can discuss your sexuality w/the therapist as well but it is the symptom, not the cause. Peace and good health.
