What is a gender therapist?
I am grateful to be a gender therapist
Working with people who are seeking gender truth and alignment is a very inspiring experience. There is some way that people with gender non-conforming identities are living, breathing examples of how essential it is that we all strive to live life as authentically as possible. Transitioning genders is an overwhelmingly difficult experience, and it requires a fierce and courageous determination. I am grateful to have spent so many hours hearing the stories of what it is like to grow up knowing your truth and feeling like you have to pretend you are another. I have not experienced this with my gender, though I have experienced it with my sexual orientation. Clearly, the two are different experiences and the associated difficulties cannot be compared. What is at the heart of both of these experiences, however, is the pain of feeling ashamed of who you really are, and the pain of being led to believe that in order to continue being accepted and loved you must pretend you are not something that you are. I’m grateful to be trusted with your process, and honored to see you journey toward you truest self.
Take the first step.

Gender assessment and letter of referral

Am I really transgender? Is this a phase?
It’s confusing when you have strong feelings and thoughts that you are taught at a very early age (if not directly, indirectly), are not “right.” Gender is a social construct – it’s made up. Just like there was a time that slavery was viewed as a good thing, or that being left-handed was not acceptable, or that homosexuality was a mental illness – we, as a culture, get things wrong. Sometimes VERY WRONG.
Over time, it was culturally decided that there would be males and there would be females and that each of these genders would look, behave, think and feel a certain way. Unfortunately, this hasn’t proven to be accurate or even doable for many people who identify as transgender and gender nonconforming.
It doesn’t have to be this way. You already know the truth about who you are. Trust yourself. There’s no one more qualified to do this than you.
Whether your struggle is with cross-dressing, gender dysphoria, gender confusion, gender-bending, fetishes that confuse you, unwanted desires or behaviors, or if you have Gender Dysphoria, having a gender therapist like myself, can ease your journey toward your true self.
A gender therapist can provide you with guidance, support, helpful resources, and the necessary information to help you succeed in living your very best, most authentic life possible, however, that looks for you.
