Gender Care

Our culture is built on very rigid norms surrounding gender and gender identity. This can make it very difficult for individuals who are transgender, gender queer, intersex, or androgynous. Trying to live your life being congruent with who you are, and navigating through hostility, shame, and judgment can feel impossible. This can lead to feelings of anger, fear, and depression.

Whether you’re out to others or not, we’ll help you through your journey in a way that’s affirming for you. We’ll help you determine ways to express your gender and find increased comfort in who you are. Although this journey can seem like an impossible one to try to navigate through, but know that it is not. You may have feelings of hopelessness. You may also have feelings of anger or frustration. Regardless, we’ll help you to build your image of yourself in a way that is congruent with who you are.

If you’re at the beginning of your journey, and you’re looking for guidance on where to begin, or you’re well into your transition, but your struggling with problems at work, or with your family or friends, we will help you to make it through this. By opening up new lines of communication, increasing your self-acceptance, and creating personal boundaries, you’ll be better equipped to walk into several different arenas with a confidence that you hadn’t previously though possible.

Contact us today to learn about how we can help you in your transition and in your life.
