Counseling in Portland, OR
You play life by your own rules, but navigating in uncharted waters sometimes leads to big loss and big pain. Living life in an intense world can lead to overwhelm, anxiety, or even PTSD. You are struggling, and you’ve lost your usual resilience. You have a unique expression of life force energy, but your core self—your spirit—has been pummelled. People who love you are even suggesting you might need help beyond what is usual. This is not what life is supposed to feel like.
Where do you see yourself in 6 months? I will help you develop your resilience, and get clarity about who you are and the life you want to lead. I have helped people across many genders, orientations, and life paths set and achieve the goals necessary to feel better and get stronger. I will help you dig in deep with yourself, and also have better relationships. To be more vulnerable, while finding a strength you never knew you had.
Often when moving though big changes, you may find that despite being inspired, you can't do what you need to do in order to get to the satisfying life you envision. It feels like you are shut down, overwhelmed, or blocked somehow. I draw on a variety of therapeutic techniques, in a gender-affirming and culturally competent manner, to help remove those blocks so that you can fully bring forth your empowered self and the life you desire.
