Supporting adults exploring gender identity or in transition.
Do you feel pressured to adhere to the social constructs of your identity? Are you wondering how your transition will affect your relationships?
Are you asking yourself questions like "What if I'm not accepted?" or "What will I do if this person doesn't respond well?"
When you are stepping into the truest version of yourself - whether just beginning to explore your gender expression or already on a journey to transition - you're also faced with new challenges. In addition to the shifts in your own identity, this journey brings with it the expectations of others: when your expression doesn't conform to those expectations, it can be difficult to remain in touch with what is most authentic to you.
You deserve a space where you don't have to explain or justify yourself, but instead feel seen, understood, and validated.
If you are:
Navigating the ways your gender expression will impact important relationships
Feeling pressure to be "female" or "male" enough, or to conform to binary gender roles
Uncertain of how to handle those in your life who may not accept you
Looking for someone who understands this process and its challenges
... then you're in the right place. In a world that is not always accepting of difference, I am a gender therapist who creates a compassionate and judgment-free space - one that promotes healing and empowerment. Therapy is a safe place to help you explore your identity, receive support in the coming out and transition process, and to step into the freedom of living as your truest self, however that may look. At the end of the day, you are the expert in your own experience. My role is simply to help guide you in identifying the changes you want for yourself - the ones that align to who you truly are.
