"In today's society it is not easy being "different". As humans, we need connection, but sometimes it's hard to build relationships if who you are doesn't match the expectations of family or loved ones. Lack of connection can lead to depression and anxiety, especially if you believe you don't fit in or experience real oppression. Relating authentically to family, friends and co-workers presents unique challenges and counseling can help, especialliy if it's done together with partners and family members. I believe in the power of relationship--to ourselves, our loved ones, our co-workers, our animal companions, and our environment."

They find themselves feeling like outsiders, even with people they’re close to. Sometimes they’re rejected by people they love. Often they’re invalidated by society at large. Sometimes they have a sense that something about them is different from everyone else but they can’t put their finger on what it is. Others know exactly what it is but they haven’t told anyone because they’re afraid it might not go well. They try to hide it and end up feeling depressed and anxious. "
