Being Queer is tough.
We grow up being taught that being LGBTQ+ is a bad thing before we even realize we’re part of the community. Every time we enter spaces, we feel anxious about whether we will be accepted or made fun of. Even once we’ve come out, we’re regularly dealing with stereotypes and discrimination.
Over time, this causes us to withdraw, shut down the parts of ourselves that make us special, and try to live up to other people’s expectations. Even though it’s not our fault, it feels discouraging and holds us back from reaching our full potential.
Luckily, LGBTQ+ people are strong.
And here's the thing: we cannot let anyone else steal our joy or future. We are fully worthy of happiness and pursuing all of our wildest dreams. Living openly and authentically builds a unique empowerment that contributes to us having limitless potential.
In fact, being proud of ourselves and living life on ours own terms is one of our greatest superpowers. We can harness that strength and use it to push past fear, go for what we want, and have extraordinary lives, and I'm going to help you get there.
Therapy will be your path to elevation.
Through investing in your personal growth, you're going to feel the power of knowing you can go for the things you want and get them. The people in your life are going to notice your higher confidence and give you props for honoring your self-worth and asking for more in all situations.
You'll feel lighter, more relaxed, and motivated to keep leveling up. And I'll be by your side through the good times, the hard times, and everything in-between to offer encouragement and to help keep you accountable. I know you can do this, and I'm stoked to be a part of your mental health glow-up!
