If you feel isolated and alone in your experience; if you don’t like who you are; if you like who you are but dislike the lack of acceptance you get from others in your life; or if you’re so tangled up in expectations – your own, other people’s, maybe both – that you don’t even KNOW who you are… I’ve been there. I see you. I hear you. And I’m here to help.”
