It can be a challenge to figure out who you are, especially when family, friends, and society at large tells you how to live your life. I give clients a space to explore themselves and discover ways to move closer to their ideal self.
I view the therapeutic relationship as a collaborative effort in order to help the client achieve their goals. I believe that when a person has access to a non-judgmental environment, they can discuss the difficult challenges in their life.
Seeking counseling can be a scary process. Before I became a counselor, I received therapy to help me through my gender transition. It was difficult and scary, but so rewarding. It helped me so much that I wished to help others through the process.
