My services are LGBTQ+ and alternative-relationships friendly. As a queer practitioner, I especially appreciate how important it is to feel understood and not judged for one's sexuality.

LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, +) persons may encounter specific challenges (e.g., oppression and discrimination) related to their sexual orientation. These challenges may include norms and beliefs of family members, friends, church, and cultural customs. Social and cultural norms sometimes conflict with your own values, that of other cultures you belong to, and a sense of who you are. Some communities maintain entrenched beliefs and stereotypes of LGBTQ+ persons. In those cases, there may be resistance to accept you because you do not meet certain cultural expectations. As a result, a LGBTQ+ person may feel shame, and low self-esteem and self-worth. These feelings can lead to depression and anxiety and you may withdraw from others to protect yourself from hurt and feel lonely at the same time. When you grow up around negative attitudes or discrimination against a group people for their sexuality or gender, it may also be difficult to accept and express yourself for who you truly are. You may find it difficult to be curious about, and explore, your sexuality and identity. As a South Asian born man (he/him) in a second-generation immigrant family in Canada, I understand some of the complexities of culture, sexuality, and gender expression. I am excited to support you on this journey. I celebrate and stand with you as a LGBTQ+ person.
