Gender and Sexuality can be a difficult to navigate, especially when expressing yourself seems to jeopardize your connection with loved ones. Rest assured, you do not have to choose between being yourself or staying connected to people you care about! I will support you to strike a balance between staying centred within yourself and connecting with others and to navigate the complex interrelationships between gender identity, expression, and experience, and sexual identity, expression, and experience.
Relationships exist at the meeting point between identity, expression, experience, desire, and love—of being and longing; of belonging. While gender and sexuality offer powerful means for self-expression and connection, many understandings of gender and sexuality divide, label, and exclude. And it is not always easy to know the difference between affirming and dis-empowering perspectives! Especially when talking about sex and gender is considered ‘impolite’ or ‘too private’. I offer a non-judgmental and sex-positive space where you can process your experiences, identify what is important to you, and learn about the interconnections between identity, expression, experience, desire, love, and belonging while situating your experience within a broader social and historical context.
