About Andrew Tessmer


  • Are you unhappy about where you are in life and fear others won’t accept you for who you are?
  • Do you feel as though you cannot be the person you truly are or have to hide facets of yourself?
  • Are the daily pressures of life sometimes too much to handle?
  • Do you struggle to readjust when things do not go the way originally planned?
  • Do you feel stuck and want to change, but do not know how to move forward?

If so, you may find it helpful to connect with someone who has been through these feelings and understands the challenge in managing feelings of anxietystressisolationinsecurity, and even depression. I understand the struggles with exploring your identity and finding the confidence to love and value your unique self. As an LGBTQ+ therapist I can also help with navigating the coming out process with friends, family, and colleagues.


  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
