Gender Affirming Therapy
My practice provides services related to gender transition. These services include: 1) assessment/letter writing services for those actively pursuing medical interventions, and 2) therapy to explore gender affirming interventions, (social transition, coming out, hormone therapy, surgery). I am competent and comfortable assessing those with binary and non-binary identities, as well as "non-typical" transition journeys. Individuals who choose to work with me are often seeking someone with a lived experience similar to theirs.
My practice is focused on supporting trans and nonbinary people in navigating issues specifically related to these identities. Typical topics that I can support you with include:
Exploration of gender identity, including non-binary/gender expansive identities
Moving past negative thought patterns associated with transition.
Connection to local resources and support networks
Processing feelings that may arise before, during, or after gender transition
Supportive therapy to explore pros and cons of medical interventions, (hormone replacement therapy, surgery, hormone blockers for children)
Letters of support for hormones or gender reassignment surgery
I am focusing on providing short-term transition specific counseling to transgender people. I no longer provide long-term, supportive therapy for general therapeutic concerns, such as anxiety/depression. My associate, Max Keller, is able to provide therapy to those who are seeking a more general therapy. Check them out on the "Meet Max" page
