Individual therapy is a process through which a person explores their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors with a trained therapist. The aim of individual therapy is to garner insights, facilitate change and improve a person's quality of life.  Areas of specialization include:

  • Gender diversity

  • Sexuality

  • Self-actualization

  • Mindful living

  • Trauma/Abuse

  • Depression/Anxiety

  • Life transitions

  • Grief and loss

 My aim in providing gender care is to help folks understand and embrace their unique gender and navigate any changes needed to live their best life. There is no single story line and no linear path so everyone's gender care will look different.  I work with people of all ages, including young children.

Topics I often explore:

  • Gender experience and development

  • Gender education and awareness

  • Transition options: Social, Medical, Surgical

  • Support through transitions

  • Family support work

  • Medical needs and access

  • Updating documents

  • Navigating School/Work

  • Accessing community

I offer training for people and places looking to become more gender-inclusive in their thinking and practices. 

Topics include:

  • Gender Awareness/Gender Diversity 101

  • Working with Gender-Diverse People

  • Social Transition for Children and Youth
