Some people find their minds weighted down with overthinking, replaying difficult conversations, worrying, and trapped in self-judgment and criticism. They're often finding fault in others, and can find it difficult to feel connected and at home in relationships, feeling alone even when next to someone they know. Friendships and marriages suffer, and families can drift apart. Efforts to try to fix things don't work, and they're left feeling helpless, not knowing which direction to go, hiding their true emotions from the people in their lives.

If you are highly critical of yourself, have difficulty trusting in yourself, are facing a life transition, feel stuck in long-standing patterns of thinking or being, or experiencing relational issues, therapy may be a meaningful process for you to engage in. Anxiety, depression, and issues around self-esteem are painful experiences that many of us face. Often times, we get used to feeling these ways, or don't know what to do about them, or we believe what our self-critic tells us about ourselves, resulting in feelings of shame and a pressure to be different.

Gender dysphoria is a diagnosis that describes the distress associated with the incongruence between assigned sex and gender identity. What the diagnosis doesn't describe, and is often poorly understood, is the experience of dysphoria. Physical or social role dysphoria, and what I call "gender dysphoria noise" can lead to anxiety, depression, and isolation.

Does talking about sex make you feel uncomfortable? Do you struggle with not feeling confident in your skin? You are not alone. Many times anxiety may come from dealing with sexuality and learning how to maneuver in this world. Often, our parents didn't talk to us about sex and interactions that go along with it. Unfortunately, their parents didn't either and the cycle continues. I enjoy helping people come into their full sexual self. This new awareness tends to breed confidence that leaks into all parts of life.
