We are stress management experts and we specialize in helping corporate professionals address key factors contributing to burnout.
Gender identity issues, sometimes called gender dysphoria or gender conflict, occur when an individual feels an inconsistency between their physical gender and the gender they truly feel or identify with. This most commonly exhibits itself as a physical discomfort with the gender one was assigned at birth, including the feeling of being in the wrong body. Children with gender dysphoria may express disgust of their own genitals or a certainty that they will grow up to be the opposite sex. Some individuals with gender identity issues treat this feeling by physically modifying their bodies to better match their gender identity. Gender dysphoria comes with it an increased risk for depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, and bullying. If you are experiencing gender identity issues, reach out to one of TherapyDen’s qualified professionals today.
Being human is often tough. Sometimes we lose our way and can feel stuck and overwhelmed. Sometimes we would like to change parts of our lives or ourselves but don’t know how. Therapy can be an empowering way to promote healing, growth, and wellness. Often, we initially seek treatment to address a specific concern and then begin to uncover other areas of our lives in which we want to make meaningful change. My goal is for this process to feel supportive, affirming, and appropriately challenging.
Are you tired of the negative inner narrative that says you're never doing enough? Feeling like no one can understand what you're going through? Do you hold yourself to incredibly high standards and feel like you're always doing/giving/taking care of others? Do you struggle with religious or relational trauma? Together we can listen to what you need most, ground through the breath and the body, and practice techniques for alleviating trauma responses while discovering your authentic self.
Our clients come from a wide range of backgrounds but all have one thing in common - they've made a step in a direction to better themselves. Some have been in therapy for years and just need to check in once periodically while some are in crisis and needing more intensive support. Regardless of the level of severity of need everyone deserves to be heard and understood so that they can be and do better.
