  • The seven stages to coming out

Each of us has the right to live as who we truly want to be and to love whom we choose. Sometimes, that is not easy, depending on a person’s beliefs and available support network.

We all have “closets” we need to come out of at some point in our lives. Having a better understanding of what that process looks and feels like can help you to address the process of coming out with your clients who are coming out as LGBTQ, polyamorous or as members of a kink community.

This course is truly like no other available and will give you the necessary confidence to work with clients who are ready to pull back the closet doors and step into their authentic lives!
