Self-Discovery and Expression
I am committed to supporting individuals in discovering who they are and authentically manifesting that self-expression. Sometimes this exploration reveals an incongruence between one’s birth gender and gender identity. I can help you achieve clarity on your gender identity and support you in the steps toward manifesting more fully as who you are.
Your Authentic Self
Living and embodying your authentic self is essential to your happiness and success. Life can be challenging and scary for the transgender individual. Society is still opening its mind and heart around this issue and is still wrought with transphobia and misunderstanding. Having people who care about you on your side makes all the difference in the world. I am always honored to be part of an individual’s support system—emotionally and logistically—as there are many hurdles to overcome.
Navigating relationships throughout this process can be difficult, too. I am also available to help you with these struggles either individually or with others in process with you. I have found that with open dialogue, good education on what it means to be trans, and therapeutic support, those we love can come to understand and accept us for who we are.
Many trans people have experienced trauma—be it trauma for being queer or from sexual abuse, rape, or physical abuse. I specialize in trauma and am dedicated to helping the trans community receive the care they need to find healing and wholeness.
Please note: If you require a letter for either hormone therapy or surgery, this is not billable to insurance and will need to be paid by you at a prorated rate commensurate of the time it took to write it.
