It’s time to feel
comfortable & confident
in Your relationships.

Needs, Boundaries
& Self-Care

A 2-Day Virtual Workshop for Queer Folks


Are you experiencing high-anxiety or a harsh inner-critic in your relationships with others – your partner, friends, family or colleagues?


You might say to yourself…

  • I’m afraid to say “NO” when others ask me for something I don’t want to do.
  • I worry too much that others will judge me & think I’m selfish.
  • I please others in hopes of get my needs met, but I still don’t get mine.
  • I want to be more social, but I just want to stay home and watch Netflix.


The secret is understanding the relationship you have to your own needs,
and then doing the work necessary to honor and protect them. 


Learn to trust what works best for YOU in your relationships.


Imagine if you could…

  • Feel confident that others will respect your “Yes” & “No.”
  • Better understand why you have particular needs.
  • Trust your intuition around needs.
  • Taken action around your boundaries easily.
  • Have a short list of your favorite go-to self-care practices.


“By understanding the individual nature of my needs
and how they may change over time,
I can choose to try to address those needs in different ways,
through self-care or asking for help from others.”
~ Kathleen S., workshop participant

As a queer person myself I know firsthand that we often put others needs ahead of our own in order to help us feel safe and secure in our relationships.

But the reality is that just leaves you depleted, resentful and unfulfilled.

In my therapy and coaching practice I have supported many queer folks to uncover how and why they have neglected themselves. I have helped them get better at building the confidence needed to put themselves first without feeling guilty or selfish.

This truth and vulnerability can then help your relationships become deeper, stronger and even more fulfilling.


Here’s how we’ll do this in three steps:

  • Evaluate Your Needs – What’s missing and why?
  • Explore Your Boundaries – How do we feel safe in our own space?
  • Exercise Self-care – What skills can we cultivate to feel at ease in connection to others?


In this two-day virtual workshop, we’ll meet online by Zoom for 2-hours on Saturday & Sunday. There will be teaching and discussions, journaling exercises, guided visualizations, and small group sharing. All you will need is a private space with internet, and something to write down your thoughts and ideas.


Saturday & Sunday, October 8th & 9th
10a – 12p PST / 1p – 3p EST
Online via ZOOM


This workshop is for you if…

  • You’re tired of feeling like you aren’t getting what you want out of your relationships.
  • You want to learn how to set better boundaries so you actually have the energy to do the things that will make you happy.
  • You want to figure out the right practices that will help you recharge your battery so that you can be more present in your relationships.


“It was really helpful to be in this really safe space
that Nick holds so well – to learn about my needs and boundaries
as a queer person. I somehow had not considered that lens before
and it was very helpful.”
~ workshop participant



  • Do I have to be on camera?
    You are not required to be on camera, but verbal interaction is strongly encouraged for at least small group shares.
  • Will there be time for me to talk to you about my relationships?
    There will be time in the break out groups to share your personal stories. I may offer brief laser coaching in the larger group.
  • Will this workshop be recorded?
    In support of allowing folks to feel safe sharing personal stories, this workshop is not recorded. Live attendance is required.


Saturday & Sunday, October 8th & 9th

Nick Venegoni, MA & CHT

As a seeker and student of healing wisdom I have always had a curiosity for the nature of the universe and my relationship to it. Growing up I couldn’t wait to take off my shoes and play in the yard with my dogs and sit in trees, feeling most at home in my body in the natural world. As I matured I discovered a natural talent for listening to others stories and holding their emotions and potential for greater wholeness and well-being, much in the same way the trees held me as a child.

I do this work to help people find a path to healing and wholeness. I help you to build inner strength so you can overcome past traumas, change internal stories and heal your wounds. I support my clients with warmth, while challenging them to break outside the old patterns that no longer serve them. I work holistically, which means I look at the whole person: body, mind and spirit. I teach relaxation tools because cultivating awareness and a calm mind are essential keys to mental health. Oftentimes I use guided visualization or  hypnotherapy , so we won’t just be sitting and talking all the time. Occasionally I may suggest collaborating with complimentary practitioners to bring balance to nutrition, sleep patterns or physical well-being.

I am passionate about this work because I have gotten so much emotional freedom and access to joy from my own healing process. I believe you’ve got the wisdom, and my goal is to help you tap into it.

As a gay and queer person it’s important for me to support others who, like myself, have suffered at the hands of hatred, injustice, fear or misunderstanding; to be a guide and an advocate for those who feel alone, different or weird on their healing journey.

I may be the right fit for you if you’re looking for someone who will listen to you with deep compassion, seek to understand all about you and your inner world, challenge you to try on new perspectives, and work with you to create a road map toward the best you. I help you to build inner strength so you can overcome past traumas, change internal stories and heal your wounds.

I welcome you to contact me for a free phone consultation or to schedule an event near you.
