Gender Affirming Counseling Services
Transgender and gender diverse people and families seek therapy for a variety of reasons. While some may want therapy because of gender-specific experiences (e.g, questioning one’s gender identity, disclosure (navigating the process of transitioning, a.k.a. “Coming out”), others may come to therapy for reasons having nothing to do with their gender identities (e.g. depression, anxiety, various life stages stress). Whatever the reason that brings you or your loved one to therapy, the experience can be rewarding working with an affirming therapist who “gets it” – who does not need an explanation of what transgender and gender diverse identities are and is familiar with some common experiences, questions, and concerns.
I have knowledge, awareness, and skills to provide competent counseling for people who are transgender and gender diverse. I am accepting and affirming of all people, without judgment. I challenge oppressive stereotypes and systems of thought, and I celebrate and advocate for people who are transgender and gender diverse.
Regardless of the reason you are seeking therapy, and regardless of your gender identity, I am here to help. I provide a safe and compassionate place for you to discuss whatever challenges have brought you to therapy and to help you reach your full potential.
