Are you having difficulty accessing gender affirming health care? Do you need a letter for HRT or surgery? Do you want someone to see you as your authentic amazing self, without judgement? Are you looking for a safe place to explore your gender identity? Are you a parent or partner adjusting to the identity of your loved one? Are you a practitioner wanting to provide gender affirming care to your clients?
I offer a gender affirming, safe and confidential place for folx to explore and discover their journey and authenticity. My goal is to help create a space for you to heal, uncover your true potential and lead a life that is authentic and strong. We will discuss some of the issues or situations that have entered into your life, or make sense of things that have happened in the past. Working from a gender affirming, strength based, and solution-focused approach, I believe that we all can reach our goals and aspirations with support and be empowered to be our authentic selves.
Over the past 17 years, I have focused on gender expansive and LGBTQIA+ issues. I have worked with many transgender youth and adults as they navigate transition with a gender affirming approach. I'd love to help you build your tool box, access medical care needed for transition, and grow. I am supervised by the Transgender Training Institute. If you are a provider or community organization looking to learn how you can provide gender affirming care, I would love to partner with you through my consultative services.
All identities, all genders, all relationships, all people. Koru Counseling was named after the koru, which is Maori for "loop" and is the spiral shape based on new unfurling silver fern frond and symbolizes new life, growth, strength and peace. I hope that that this safe space will help you to experience this in your own life and in your own way.
Beginning therapy is a brave thing to do. This process is full of personal challenges and vulnerability, but what's most incredible is seeing the strength, growth, and pride that folx experience when they begin to understand their life and feel confident and secure within themselves and their relationships. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a transition, challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to heal and grow to fully experience a meaningful and fulfilling life.
Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
