I work with LGBTQIA kids, and I specialize in supporting kids that are easily overwhelmed. These children have tender hearts and oh-so-real struggles. Tears, shut downs, Game of Thrones-level fights with siblings, and that’s just distance learning on a Tuesday! Then, there is their LGBTQIA identity. (Or yours!) The things you celebrate and nurture at home also cause worry when you think about your child out in the world. The idea that someone could bully them for who they are is too painful to contemplate.
Your child is doing the best they can, but the feelings are just too big. Through play therapy and collaboration with you, your child and I will create more capacity to work through all the feelings and still have energy to embrace the freedom of being a kid. Most importantly, we will do this in a way that honors all aspects of your child’s identity.
LGBTQ teens and adults, you are welcome too! Together we will rediscover your intuition, tune into your body to help you feel less stuck, and learn to rest. Even in a pandemic, we can find balance and discover peace.
