Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Queer + and parents
I am a straight therapist who has and continues to work hard to understand how homophobia and heterosexism affects the lives of LGBTQ people. I am committed to providing specialized counselling services with a growing understanding of the issues and life difficulties faced by LGBTQ youth (15+), adults, and couples to live healthier, happier more empowered lives.
If you are dealing with issues such as coming out; homophobia; gender identity; relationship difficulties; sexual health; transitioning; discrimination; harassment; bullying; anxiety; and depression, I can help.
