Life Coaching for Queer & Sex-Positive Communities
You deserve to feel the badass power inside of yourself because it's there waiting for you to discover and embrace it. As a proud genderfluid queer person my passion is helping other members of the queer and sex-positive communities find their inner power and embrace it.
Let's Queer the Wolrd Up!
Being queer and sex-positive can be a struggle in our culture. Exploring who you are, discovering that identity, and displaying it to the world are all revolutionary acts. You deserve to embrace your identity and feel the confidence within.
I've assisted relationships, individuals, parents, organizations, and corporations on their path to inner and outer acceptance and embracement of these communities.
You're Already a Badass!

Child or Parent Coming Out
Ryan is an invaluable resource to the community he serves. I refer clients to him often and seek him out for consultation because of his depth of knowledge, commitment to ethical work, his strong interpersonal skills, and his ability to connect with and support others. He is profoundly knowledgeable on all things sex, sexuality, and gender and has an ease with which he shares information.

Ryan’s understanding of the emotional realm, gained through his years of training and professional life as a therapist, allows him to be intimately connected with participants. This allows him to pick up on and respond to subtle cues in facial expressions, body language, and tone of voice that other facilitators miss. With a topic as emotional as sexuality, this specific attention to the participants allows Ryan to provide an even more effective and targeted learning experience.

The Difference Between Coaching and Therapy
Coaching is not the same as therapy and includes a different process.
The primary difference is that coaching can take a partnership or mentorship role. Coaches stay in the present and look toward the future, not assisting with past traumas. Coaching focuses on the client's external world by achieving their goals and desired outcomes.
Psychotherapists are professionals with Master's degrees and clinical training. Therapy focuses on a client's internal and external worlds to treat emotional and mental issues and possible disorders.
Both can be useful tools to assist people in making the changes that they desire and can work in conjunction together. However, if you are suffering from an emotional and/or mental issue then psychotherapy is probably a better choice for you.
Coaching with me is not therapy. To find a therapist in your area please search your area using a resource like Psychology Today.
