Welcome to the LGBTQ+ Family Growth Course, brought to you by WomenShift Coaching.
Your son or daughter has just come out as gay, lesbian, or bisexual. Your nephew wants to transition. Your niece says that she is two spirited.
You never saw this coming. Or maybe, on some level, you did. It changes nothing. And it changes absolutely everything all at once.
Your family needs to grow this time of transition, but you have no idea where to turn, what to do.
Let this online course be a beacon of healing, a ray of hope, and a plan of action.
