Counseling for Affirmation of Gender, Sexual, Neurodiverse, and Other Marginalized Identities

As a neurodivergent, non-binary, queer therapist, I have been interested in issues related to gender and sexuality throughout my training and practice and more recently become aware of my own neurotype and its impact on how I experience and engage with the world. In understanding  our unchosen/default ways of being we often times will begin to see all the ways in which we have had to mask/hide aspects of who we are, and the cost of doing so. Counseling that affirms our core identities allows us to bring our full self, not just the curated/protected versions of our self into the counseling relationship. In order to experience the greatest opportunity for growth we need to be seen fully. 

Treatment Approach

While your primary concerns bringing you into counseling may not be explicitly about identity, our ability to connect with one another while honoring the fullness of each other is important. Often as you begin unpacking that parts of your experience related to gender, or neurodiversity, or disability, or race, you'll be confronted with grief, anger, sadness, relief, excitement, and many other emotions. This may be an aspect of your experience you are really aware of and familiar with or it may be one of the first times you are diving below the surface. That's all okay, and there is room for everything it brings up. 

We are all inherently worthy of love (from both ourselves and others) but many of us have been taught the opposite and have had to abandon parts of our self along the way. In our work, we will find ways to reclaim who you are, safe ways of living that more fully, and processing the ways society has limited that expression. When we know who we are truly meant to be, we get to decide how best to pursue that life, a life we truly believe in and have passion for.
