You have probably landed on this page because your child or a loved one (grandchild? niece? friend?) has recently come out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or another sexual orientation or gender identity and you are looking for resources and tools. I know the joys and challenges of parenting an LGBTQ child.

Or, maybe you’re here because your company or organization is looking for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) speakers. I can help you with that!

Don’t panic. Take a deep breath. You are in the right place. I’ve been where you are. I’ve felt the shock, the joy, the terror, the growth, the unconditional love, the fierce mama bear response. It’s A LOT! And, it can be challenging to find support, guidance, resources, and education. That’s why I’m here.

There are a variety of solutions for individuals, organizations, and corporations listed below. Each tailored to guide you on your path to:

1 Column

Embrace Educate Empower Love

Private Consultation

Often, the best 'first-step' is to book a private consultation and get 1:1 coaching & consulting on your most important questions. I have a rich library of resources for you. Privacy is my utmost priority, and anything discussed is strictly confidential. I'm here to let you just breathe.

Solutions for Individuals

Parents and allies, LGBTQ folks, and anyone who is seeking growth and understanding

The Just Breathe Community

At long last there is a community just for you!

Welcome to a space that is safe, private, and filled with opportunity for connection, processing, and growth! Here is what is inside this unique community:

  • Weekly group support calls with Heather

  • A private VIP Facebook group

  • Lifetime access to my digital course, Learning to Just Breathe. Learn how to navigate the coming out process with the four pillars - Embrace, Educate, Empower, and Love. It includes six modules, 25 lessons, worksheets and journaling opportunities to deepen your learning and the entire Language of LGBTQIA+ ebook.

Bring your questions or know that you have a safe space to come and know that you are not alone!

1:1 Coaching

Do you have questions and experiences you'd like to process through? Do you prefer a more personalized approach? I offer several options for meeting via zoom. These sessions can include other family members as well. I also recently introduced email coaching if you're not quite ready for zoom.

I only take 5 private clients at a time so that I can give you my very best.

Solutions for Corporations and Organizations

If you are looking for a speaker who is engaging and who speaks from the heart, look no further! Sharing stories and education is my passion. I am available to speak at both in-person and virtual events. Here are a few topics I can present on:

  • Supporting your child through the coming out process

  • How to be a good LGBTQIA+ ally

  • How to interact with non-affirming people without drama

  • The Language of LGBTQIA+

  • There's a process for parents, too!

Book a call with me so we can discuss your speaking or presentation needs. I love integrating Q&A and breakout rooms into my talks, and I am always open to creating talks around a specific need your company or organization may have.
