At Advanced Awareness Counseling we are empathetic and supportive of those who are working through gender and transgender issues. All of our staff take an interest in keeping themselves educated and informed about gender and transgender concerns. As we have a growing clientele in this area, we are currently expanding our staff network that can assist in all aspects of gender identity.
We strongly believe in autonomy and an individual's right and need to fulfill their goals and blossom into what they believe will be the best version of themselves. Our goals are to help you learn about yourself, understand yourself, and accept yourself. We work with gender non-conforming individuals on all area of the spectrum, including but not limited to: Transgender females, Transgender males, Non-Binary, Transmaculine, Transfeminine, Tri-Gender, Poly-Gender, Agender, Genderqueer, Gender Fluid, and any and all other identifications.
Should your desire be to "transition," we work toward discovering the best way for that to be accomplished. We believe that self-acceptance is the key to successful authentic living, and therapy can help with this. We help you gain insight and work on strategies to navigate the particulars of your social atmosphere and work to promote realistic planning and expectations. We also work to assist our clients in finding other resources, including medical, legal, wardrobe, financial, etc.—that will assist in whatever transition process the client has chosen. We are supportive of and will endorse hormone treatment upon the client's request.
