Understanding what it is like to be transgender can be hard, especially if you have never met a transgender person.
In 1982 I found myself in the hospital being treated for a lower back problem. I was seeing a therapist for the first time and she came to see me. She normally doesn't go to hospitals she told me, but thought it was important for me to know that lower back problems frequently indicate that someone is "compressing" one's true self. Something about her statement rang true and I began my journey to learn about mind-body health, emotional and psychological wellness and spiritual connection. I later received a Masters Degree and licence to provide mental health services and have been doing so for 30 years. My passion is joining with and encouraging others to seek joy and authentic connection with oneself, others and with a power greater than ourselves. I have certifications in workplace issues and am a trained Family Law mediator. If for example you would like to live a more authentic life, to make a challenging transition or to live through a painful experience, I invite you to meet me for a 30 minute consultation at no charge to you. In the meantime, blessings on your journey!
