From existing to THRIVING.

You don’t have to feel miserable and muddle through life barely existing.

You can thrive in a meaningful and happy life.

Here are a few common reasons people contact me:


LGBTQAI+ Transgender, Gender Non-binary, Gender Non-conforming Individuals

It can be terrifying to wonder about your own personal gender identity and sexuality. Wondering if you  may be gay. Wondering if your gender identity may vary from the one you were assigned at birth.

What will be do an say to you if you tell them you’re actually not the gender they’ve assumed you’re whole life? And, what if you want to start using the restroom that matches your gender identity?

How do you go about starting a medical transition including potential HRT and surgeries with the necessary letters? It can all feel overwhelming and daunting and you may not be sure who to trust with what feels so personal.

Why come and sit on the couch and do all the talking and the feeling?

Because, we can get you out of that dark and lonely closet into  living the life that feels good. You can LIVE as the gender you have always known you are. Self acceptance and total life integration as a whole, happy person are completely achievable goals.



Faith Transitions

Leaving the church can feel like an isolating experience. In the beginning a lot of people feel like they’re hiding.

Maybe you’re still trying to conceal that you’re not wearing garments, or you haven’t told your spouse you want to drink coffee; maybe your parents don’t know you haven’t gone to church in a month.

It can be scary and lonely to not know if you’ll lose your marriage, friends, community, and life as you know it.

Life outside of the Mormon church can be meaningful, happy, and fulfilling. You can find a new sense of purpose as well as your own sense of authority.

The freedom to find yourself will be an exhilarating ride that will take away the fear of being the empty seat at the eternal table. You’ll have confidence to make your own decisions and a new found sense personal authority you may never have known existed.
