Hello and Welcome! My name is Theo Champagne and my pronouns are they/them/theirs. I am excited to be a part of your journey!
Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern in Orlando, FL
Supervised by Sherry Mattos
I've worked with a variety of clients on enjoying the experiences of gender exploration and discovery! I encourage all clients, cisgender or not, to examine their understandings of gender and how it impacts their everyday lives.
95% of my client population is within the LGBTQIA+ community and experiences the unique challenges associated with this community. From coming out to relationships to discrimination, I've helped clients navigate the positives and negatives of such a diverse community.
As an autistic person myself, I have a special understanding of the experiences of autistic individuals. I help my autistic clients see the joy in their differences and feel confident in using the accommodations they need to be successful!
As a theatre artist, I believe in the power of storytelling. The way we tell our story and describe ourselves as characters within it has a great impact on the way we view ourselves and our situation. Changing these narratives can empower us and remind us of our strengths.
All people have the necessary tools inside themselves to create change. Having an objective and nonjudgmental listener can help to create awareness of the areas of our lives that aren't aligned with our values.
Especially when dealing with adversity, it can become difficult to find meaning in our experiences. However, by finding that meaning we can create resiliency and increase coping so that our lives feel more fulfilling.
