Recently I was asked if I work with transgender people. The answer is a resounding YES! I believe in the right to own your Self, no matter what. I believe that all people should be able to define and label themselves, based on their own interpretation of who they are. I find deep satisfaction in helping people learn to delve within to answer those questions for themselves and I enjoy co-creating with people, brainstorming to figure out just the right label that most closely defines who they are.
This world is a rough place for someone who doesn’t fit neatly into one of the binary options. No matter if you’re transgender (anywhere on the spectrum), intersex, genderqueer, or gender-questioning, you challenge the status quo and you make close-minded people uncomfortable. Which in turn makes it hard to find safe, comfortable places to exist, to connect, to socialize, to feel accepted, to be truly Seen. I can offer that. I will honor whatever gender pronoun(s) you prefer. You can show up for session dressed however you feel most comfortable.
You are so brave, you have so much heart, and you have already done so much soul searching, so much more than the average person who just stumbles through their life. You have the opportunity to become who you most truly are, and I can help.
However, I need to point out that I am a coach. What I am NOT is a therapist or a doctor. I cannot prescribe medication, I cannot sign off on the paperwork required prior to gender surgeries.
What I can do is offer emotional support and assistance in learning to resolve any mixed feelings you may be struggling with in relation to your gender and identity. I will assist in figuring out what shade of gender-variant individual you may be and what label (if any) to use in describing yourself to others. I will be your cheerleader, enthusiastically on your side while you progress through your identity shift, regardless of your decision to transition. I can help you prepare for and practice your coming out approach and manage the various reactions you get from your loved ones. I can help you work through any limiting beliefs or internalized transphobia keeping you from embracing your true nature. I can help share resources and information about transition and other gender related topics.
So what do you need? How can I help support you? Please reach out with any questions you may have. I’m happy to address your concerns. If you’re ready to schedule a session, you can do so here.
