It is ok to just be! Life and our emotions exist across a spectrum. Research suggests that LGBTQ+ individuals are at higher risk for depression, anxiety, substance abuse and suicide. Members of the community face stigma and discrimination on a regular basis, from family members, peers, society, co-workers, classmates, and occasionally from the LGBTQIA community itself. Just as life is always in flux, so goes our identity.
I work with clients and/or their families who may be dealing with issues related to gender, identity, coming out, transitioning, or family conflict.
