Are you struggling with your relationship ending or changing? Have you discovered that your partner is LBGT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender)? You may feel betrayed by the one you thought loved you the most. Or perhaps it's your parent who's 'come out of the closet'. Either way, you are experiencing something that is changing everything you thought you knew. You may be confused, angry, conflicted, and afraid. You may feel alone in your struggle, as though no one understands quite what you're going through. It can be very difficult to feel heard, validated, and understood.

We often come to therapy when we are anticipating or experiencing change; endings and new-beginnings. I work with people through changes; in identity, relationships, sexuality, health, career and family. I work primarily with the LGBTQIA+ community, including our allies, friends and family. Together we can explore the parts of ourselves that come with endings and change; grief and loss, anger, trauma, anxiety and depression. In doing this, we can become curious and generate movement towards new-beginnings and new chapters.
