I never was one to give my all to therapy until I met grace. She is a fantastic therapist, very knowledgeable, and supportive. I was able to work true past trauma from my childhood and now I have amazing relationships that I never thought I would have. The location is easy to get to very clean the last time I was there. She has also been following covid protocol and we have still been in contact via face chat. I would highly recommend!
Being LGBTQ+ can be hard during these times, and we know that it can be even harder if you feel like even the people you love can’t know how you feel. That’s why Grace has dedicated part of her practice to helping all members of the LGBTQ+ community by allowing her practice and expertise to be a safe place for those just discovering their gender/sexual identity or those who have known their whole life but still need a helping hand.
