My mission as a licensed Social Worker is to provide support to families while they navigate the unique path of raising an LGBT child, and create the family bonds that they envision for themselves. When expecting a child it is natural to have a narrative in mind for what that baby’s future will look like and who they might become. When that path is diverted, it can present unique issues, challenges and experiences, which can be overwhelming and exhausting for families to navigate. I have worked with many families, have LGBT training and bring an additional layer of empathy to my practice as I have also walked the road of raising a child that has fallen ‘far from the tree’.
