Transformational Therapy
for Nonbinary, Transgender, Gender Questioning, and Gender Expansive Folx

You’ve spent too many years trying to be the person other people wanted you to be.

You faced a constant struggle between the friends, activities, clothes, and other choices that felt right to you and the constant, maybe subtle, maybe not so subtle urging of others to make different choices. That somehow, you’d be more acceptable if you acted differently, fit in more, and broke the binary less.

You’ve felt alone, like an alien, like there was something deep down very wrong with you. That if people really knew you, they’d reject you as unacceptable, maybe as a monster. So you’ve hidden, fit in, and doubted your own sense of what’s good for you. You’ve looked to others for guidance on how to be acceptable since your own judgment has seemed so unreliable in the face of society’s feedback. And you’ve gained some acceptance but felt hollow, empty, and maybe like you don’t even exist anymore on the inside.

You’ve tried to overachieve to win acceptance. If only people could see how talented, smart, effective, and useful you are, then they’d come around. But you always keep your true self hidden, so any accolades never quite land and they never quite soothe the fear of being exposed and rejected.

You want the strength to be the person on the outside who you are on the inside, even in the face of society’s constant messaging about gender.

You want a therapist who understands gender. You want someone who can walk with you on your gender journey. And you want a therapist to help with depression, anxiety, relationships, work stresses, and other life challenges that come up along the way. A therapist who understands gender as part of, but not your whole story.
