Death of attraction? Hopefully not...

Not really sure how to let this out to my college counselor. In February of this year, I came out to my mom and brother. Things were better than I thought they would turn out to be. A couple of month later, my Dad somehow got the impression that we were all hiding something from him and as such, coerced me to tell him what was going on. I told him. He was somewhat judgmental of me and I completely stopped talking to him about these topics. Ever since that, I've been worried about how my future decisions will affect my relationship with my parents.

This has greatly affected my attractions in the sense that they've mostly died down, especially after my Dad found out. However my sexual fantasies have still held up to people I've been attracted to, but in real life I don't seem to be attracted to new people often at all.
What can be the reason for all of this? My counselor told me that I have OCD about denying my sexuality, but I don't know if she could understand where my attractions are dying and why. Maybe anxiety, but I feel that I don't know really where to start in explaining this to my female counselor.
