Some clients we have helped

“Thanks Michael for putting together the LGBTQ Family Clinical Issues and Treatment Issues Strategies workshop. It was a great informative and interactive workshop. It opened my eyes of the issues that are going on currently with LGBTQ, and how we can help support our clients and how we can educate the community of LGBTQ.”
