As one client recently said, "I just have to tell you - our meeting yesterday has changed the way I view myself in a very positive way. What you are doing is lifechanging!"

So you realize that you're LGBTQIA+. That's great. But when you look around your family, school or community, sometimes it can be hard to know who can you talk to about it. Heather is a safe space to talk to. Having grown up in the church and come out in her late 30s, she understands how hard it can be sometimes to even ask the questions. She can remind you of your value and worth, connect you with safe and helpful resources, and (if appropriate) help you navigate the faith shifts you are facing.
