How I Help You

For years, I’ve improved the lives of others through therapy, outreach, and life advice. Now, as a Queer Career Coach and transformational life coach, I help successful and motivated LGBTQ+ individuals to get “unstuck” in their lives so they can take their life and career to the next level through the use of goal setting and therapeutic techniques.
