Virtual Mental Wellness Services

Queer Peer Support offers a variety of Lived Experience based peer to peer support, in the form of consulting, 1 on 1 sessions, group sessions, and mentoring. Run by a transgender man and an agender nonbinary person, QPS operates by and for people like us. We have a variety of lived experience, including living with ADHD, OCD, Autism, complex trauma, and more. We are not licensed therapists, and peer support is absolutely not the same thing as therapy. We also operate on the principle that we are not the experts. You are the expert on your own self, and we respect your authority as such.

 

Peer support is a tool for mental wellness, and it can be used if therapy is unavailable, if traditional therapy is not what you are looking for, or if you want a little extra support in addition to therapy. The peer support providers at QPS will work with you to set goals, work on things that are bothering you, or just hold a space for you to be heard. Whatever you need, we will work with you!

Book a free consult today and discover how Peer Support can help you in your mental wellness journey.

BOUNDARIES & DISCLAIMERS

Peer support providers at Queer Peer Support are not therapists, have no clinical training, are not equipped to help people in crisis, and are not licensed in any way. Formal education and experiences that our providers carry are listed on our Instagram. We will not provide any services to anyone we have a personal or professional relationship with outside of the peer support setting. We have additional commitments that do not offer much flexibility. We are peers first.

Indigenous land acknowledgement

We live in the northern area of Central Florida, United States. This means that we are living on land that was stolen from the Timucua people. Queer Peer Support wishes to pay respect to the Timucua people as we continue to cultivate our lives and livelihoods on their land.
