As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community myself, I understand the stigma associated with feeling as if you don't fit into the norms that the majority group has set for you.

I offer you a safe place to be heard and understood to discuss things others might not get. We all walk a unique path in this life and I will always support your individuality. I absolutely love celebrating successes with those I work with, and I enjoy seeing people’s faces light up with pride in their achievements. Seeing a person grow before your eyes, even when they don’t notice it yet themselves, is an amazing thing. That said, everything isn’t always rainbows,(
pun Intended). I also offer comforting support for individuals during times of struggle. Everyone faces challenges at some point, and these times can feel extremely difficult and lonely — having someone to talk to in those moments can make a huge difference. No matter if its a good day or a bad day, I will show up for you the way YOU need, without an agenda.
I am an advocate for being 110% your true self, and learning how to get there. People have described me as down to earth, non-judgmental, and realistic. I am here for you with real conversations to help you grow into the best version of yourself and overcome all of the pain and judgement that life might have thrown, or is still currently throwing your way.
