Are you tired of having to be the expert and educate your providers on what it means to be trans, non-binary or gender fluid? If so, you have come to the right place. I am a Certified Transgender Care Specialist providing affirmative services to the LGBTQIA+ community in general and gender expansive individuals in particular.
To be transparent, I am a cisgender, heterosexual, privileged, white woman. I continue to do work to dismantle my own biases and to recognize how my privilege shows up in my life and in my work. I may have learned a lot in my work, training, and readings, but I will never pretend to be the expert in your particular lived experience. I would never assume that I know better than you what your identity, sense of self or experiences have been.
Just a note, currently I am using the term gender diverse to refer to anyone who is transgender, non-binary, genderqueer, agender, and everyone else who does not fit into the category of cisgender. I realize that not everyone is comfortable with every label, but it is the one I feels like the best fit for now.
