Gender Affirming Support

As a gender expansive person I know a thing or two about gender affirming care. Beyond my person experience, I have trained extensively in providing non-biased care for teens 12+ as well as adults of all ages, in all stages of identity exploration and development. I am aware of the anti-trans legislation sweeping across the US and the world, and the ways this impacts everything from accessing care, traveling, feeling safe at work and at school, and navigating relationships with family members and friends. 

I am a member of and follow the World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) Standards of Care when providing care for youth and adults, and collaborate with doctors offices and clinics (Trillium, Strong Hospital, etc). I also write letters to advocate for gender-affirming treatment across New York state. I'm familiar with and can provide referrals for non-medical options (voice therapy, clothing, etc) and am always happy to discuss what feels euphoric as well as dysphoric. 

 

I'm also available for ongoing therapy for members of the LGBTQ+ community and questioning folks. I recognize that gender and sexual identities lead to stigma, marginalization and often times a lot of soul searching while unpacking internalized phobias and cultural programming. And sometimes, it's valuable to have am affirming therapist to talk to about everything in life - not just Your queer ness!
