Are you lost in understanding your gender identity? Need help moving forward with what feels right for you? You spend a great amount of time seeking answers to which gender identity and expression feels right for you. There is so much information out there and your identity continues to feel unclear. You become overwhelmed and worried that you can’t figure it out on your own. Your family and friends may not understand, agree, or accept your gender identity even after you’ve tried so hard to make them be there for you. The discomfort with your identity and the world keeps you from doing the things that you really want to do in life.
Exploring gender with a certified gender therapist helps to build clarity and self confidence. We can focus on your personal experience, identity, and relationship with self and loved ones. You won't be doubted or judged. If you want to manage mental health concerns more generally, you got it! Need a letter for hormones or surgery? I can provide it to you.
Gender diversity is natural and not a symptom of a mental illness. However, living in an environment that does not support it is really difficult, showing up as anxiety and depression. Together, we will identify challenges and better ways to cope with them. To start living your life fully, call or email me for a free 15 minute phone consultation.
Los problemas de identidad sexual y de género pueden apoderarse de su vida. Te sientes en guerra contigo mismo. Tienes conflicto extremo con tu cuerpo y te sientes desapegado. Tu mente y tu cuerpo están en constante conflicto. No sientes aceptación en las relaciones. Estás haciendo tu mejor esfuerzo para mantener la calma. Sin embargo, constantemente sientes las presiones sociales para encajar en una caja y etiquetarla. Esta presión te impide llevar la vida que quieres vivir. Solo quieres ser tu verdadero yo y obtener algo de alivio, pero no estás seguro de cómo hacerlo.
Como experta en el cuido de personas transgénero y psicoterapeuta, ayudo a adultos y adolescentes que luchan con problemas de identidad, ansiedad y depresión, así como a miembros de la familia que a menudo se sienten abrumados con emociones mixtas de confusión, miedo, dolor y pérdida. Escribo cartas para procedimientos de afirmación de género.
Sé lo difícil que puede ser encontrar un terapeuta que realmente comprenda los problemas únicos que las personas LGBTQ enfrentan a diario. Ofrezco una consulta telefónica gratuita de 15 minutos para que podamos conocernos y ver si es una buena opción. Llame hoy (786) 823-9262 para hacer una cita.
