A. Canelli, MA, LMHC, NCC, Counselor in Seattle
Welcome to my practice! I work with children, adolescents, and adults. I focus on queer, transgender and LGBT people. When working with clients, I am especially sensitive to how oppression (racism, sexism, transphobia, biphobia, homophobia, ageism, classism, anti-Semitism, ableism) impacts mental health and identity. I don't believe transgender, gender queer, gender different, etc., people should be forced to go to therapy to get the gender confirming care they want. Therapy and counseling should be a choice and I don't see gender difference as a mental health issue. For more information about this please visit: www.icath.info.
Some of the issues we can explore: Family of Origin Dynamics, Cultural Opression and Social Opression. I work with my clients to help them look at themselves as a whole. Not only within themselves, but in the context of our entire cultural environment.
I have been working with the LGBTQ Community for over 15 years. I focus on Transgender and Gender Queer identities as an advocate and therapist. There are so many ways a transgender identity can be expressed other than in a "female" or "male" way-all identifies are real and valid!
