Notes

"Stigma-free, affirming, affordable therapy for LGBTQIA+ Individuals

Do you live outside of the heteronormative-cisgender box?

Have you been to other supposed “LGBTQ-friendly” counselors who had no idea what you were talking about?

Could you use a safe space to process your feelings and assess your goals?

Are you seeking transition and need a letter for Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)?

Or maybe you’re seeking relationship counseling from someone who understands where you’re coming from.

If you can relate to any of the above, then you’ve come to the right place.

No judgements. No biases. Just a strong support system with open ears."
