You are trying to shine bright like a diamond and have the things most of us desire for a good life. But there is something dimming your brilliance—it constricts you. You know, those feelings of doubt, dread, disgruntlement, desperation, or despair. Like that constant wondering about whether you are viewed as competent at work; like that disappointment you cover up with food, drink or overachieving because you haven’t met “the one;” like that hurt you carry from a past that shamed you or the depths of grief; or like the helplessness feel when your child is struggling.
I want you to know that all parts of you are welcomed here: That fun-loving part, the professional (pardon, the perfectionist part :o), the race part, the gender and sexuality parts, the parent part, and that hurt or insecure child part. We offer you a soft place to fall…and to get back up.
Gotel & Thrive is the restorative space for queer and heterosexual men of color, women of color, and children & youth of diverse backgrounds to undo the thinking and behaviors that block joy and provide tools to cope when life forces you to pivot. I have a singular agenda: to help you release yourself and flourish!
