Your child or family member just came out as transgender. You are in shock and disbelief. You have a mixture of feelings. You wonder: "Is this just a phase?" "What will people think?" "Where did I go wrong as a parent?" You need someone non-judgmental to talk to. Experienced treating anxiety, depression, mood disorders, OCD, PTSD, Gender Identity Disorder, Trauma, Substance Abuse and Addictions. I work with anyone - not just the LGBTQ community. I am a "real" very down-to-earth person and I take pride in my work as a therapist. Strong person-centered and CBT approach. Familiar with 12 Step philosophy.
A seasoned LCSW with a transgender child, I provide therapy to assist in the acceptance of your child's gender identity.
I've been down this road. I know the fear and angst you are feeling. Statistics reveal that transgender people who not accepted by their families are at higher risk of mental illness, homelessness, substance use and suicide. It doesn't have to be this way. My goal is to help you accept and love your child - no matter their gender.
