You want to live more authentically but don’t know where to start.

People in the queer and trans community may feel trapped in a life they don't love. Perhaps you can relate. Maybe you feel like you want to escape your life or you know you'd be happier if you made changes but it feels safer and more comfortable to stay hidden.

Stuck in negativity and feeling worried all the time. You may feel like life is overwhelming, like it's too much.

We will start with helping you with immediate concerns like managing difficult emotions and challenging life situations.

We will also work to discover what your goals are in therapy and in life.
