Being a part of the queer (LGBT*QI+) community can be beautiful, validating, and healing and at the same time be a painful experience of prejudice, isolation, oppression, injustice, and danger.
As a queer non-binary person of color, I have personally experienced all of the above. I continuously strive to deepen my understanding of the complexities of identities and the experience of those identities within the queer community and foster healing and safety in the journey of being who we are as queer folx. It is a process of many circuitous developments in accepting, embracing, embodying, and celebrating our unique identities.
Not only do I understand this experience from training, education, and work experience but I have personally traveled many of these paths of development and discovery of awareness of myself in the midst of an environment rife with oppression, violence, and injustice. I utilize my education and training as a LGBT*QI+ Affirming counselor and the insights from my own experience of being queer to support others on their journey in discovery, healing, embodying, and celebrating their identities.
