Help teens figure out the best way to identify and express how they are feeling. Share better communication techniques so teens and their families can begin to understand each other honestly. Allow teens to have a space to share their thoughts without being judged.
Through the coming out process, relationships are tested. Helping these relationships is what I specialization. Assisting families or partners have those hard conversations so that everyone can feel heard and understood while working towards love and acceptance.
Exploring your gender identity and expression can be a complex process. Forming excellent supportive relationships with family, friends, and partners is essential. I specialize in helping you have those hard conversations to better those relationships to get the support you need.
This approach focuses on solutions that point out what is working and possible areas where things could be done differently to help. With this approach, we do not concentrate or spend sessions discussing what brought you in, but rather what life will be like for you once therapy has worked for you.
Everyone's story is different, and this approach focuses on how you want your story to be told. In sessions, we talk about the stories people have placed on you and reframe them to fit the version you want to tell instead.
Problems tend to form through miscommunication. The collaborative approach helps everyone feel heard and understood. As a result, communication begins to improve, and problems start to dissolve.
