Thrive Ahead Partners

Briana Gutierrez, Personal Trainer

“My name is Briana Gutierrez (she/her) and I am a proudly queer, Latina, NASM certified Personal Trainer from the PNW. I have been in Chicago for about 2 years and have been falling in love with the city! When I am not training you can almost always catch me cuddled up with my chihuahua, Canelo.  I work with clients to functionally build strength while improving their mobility. I am a NASM certified personal trainer and Stretching and Flexibility coach. I am also HKC (Kettlebell) certified.

Matthew Lieser, Lieser Counseling Services

“I am a mental health professional that has over 12 years of experience working with a diverse population. I am passionate about my work and view it as a mission to serve others and assist people in becoming who they are meant to be. I started my own practice called Lieser Counseling Services in 2020 and continue to grow and build a space that provides healing and growth for those in need and those courageous enough to take the journey of self discovery.  I specialize in men’s issues, the LGBTQIA community, spirituality and sexual healing, PTSD and EMDR as well as a wholistic approach of body, mind and spirit to assist my clients in uncovering their truest sense of self.”

Matthew Kerr, Pins and Needles Acupuncture & Wellness

“I utilize acupuncture, cupping and Gua Sha therapies, herbal medicine along with diet and lifestyle counseling to help my patients achieve the most out of their experience with me. I have a special interest in treating the LGBTQ+ community, psycho-emotional concerns such as stress, anxiety, depression, and have a experience in treating several levels of trauma and how it effects our minds and bodies. I also treat men’s and women’s health, fertility, digestive support along with pain management. Pain management and acupuncture are very effective with supporting athletic training, neck, shoulder, and back tension, headaches, migraines along with jaw pain. Just to name a few.”
