If you are lesbian, gay, trans, queer, questioning, or 2-spirited, you might struggle with issues like depression, anxiety, or concerns related to being an LGBTQ2S person.

Being LGBTQ2S is challenging… it’s also confusing and painful at times.

You might struggle with feeling bogged down by sadness or a sense of numbness.

Perhaps you frequently worry and fret, have social anxiety or panic attacks.

All these problems can be exacerbated because you are in a minority group in our world.

Coming to terms with your sexual identity or gender and coming out can be overwhelming and scary.

Some of your friends and family may have trouble accepting you. You may feel rejected and unworthy. You may even wish you were straight.

Relationships as an LGBTQ2S person can also be complicated.

You might struggle with finding someone to love, being judged or not feeling safe to express your feelings for your partner around family, friends, or in public.

I know when you’re confused or hurting it can be hard to have hope.

With my expertise, support and guidance, together we can work towards feeling comfortable about who you are and where you fit in the world.

My goal is to help you resolve any confusion and pain, and to create a life that works for you.

Do you and your colleagues have experience working with people who identify as living with a disability or chronic illness? Please tell us more about your experience and any training you have received. (For example, do you have experience working with people with diverse physical or cognitive abilities, or those who are living with specific chronic illness(es)?

—Yes, to some extent

I have worked with many individuals with diverse physical or cognitive abilities. However, this has not been a focus of my practice, so I would encourage individuals to check out my website to decide if it feels like a good fit.

Does your practice have gender-neutral washrooms?

—Yes

Are there clear anti-discrimination policies that include gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation in your organization or practice?

—No

I work on my own and I have not developed specific policies regarding anti-discrimination. It is up to individuals to decide if it is a good fit to work with me or not. I believe that fit is the best determinant of positive outcome in this work, and I encourage clients to trust themselves about what feels right for them.

Are all individuals involved in service provision actively engaged in decolonizing their practices and/or organization? If yes, please type below what actions you and/or your organization are taking.

—Yes

I have a personal commitment to taking courses and having conversations that challenge me in the work of decolonizing practice and anti-racism work.

Are all individuals involved in service provision actively engaged in anti-racist practices, policies, and systems in their care model?

—Yes

I work on my own and I'm self-employed.
