Nonbinary individuals are often misunderstood, which can lead to feelings of invalidation and invisibility. The more aware and experienced mental health providers there are available to the nonbinary population, the more likely these individuals will find the support and encouragement they so very much need and deserve.
Increase your confidence in your sessions with this population as we explore: the definition of “nonbinary,” nonbinary gender identities (as well as gender expression and presentation), nonbinary transition options, creating a more inclusive and affirming environment for your nonbinary clients, and best practices for working with nonbinary clients. We’ll also define what it means to be “nonbinary competent” as a therapist and assess where your current skills fall on the awareness continuum.
Discuss nonbinary transition options
Hi, I’m Dara Hoffman-Fox. My pronouns are Dara/they/them.
I’m a queer-identified mental health counselor whose passion for working with gender-questioning, transgender, and nonbinary clients goes far beyond the four walls of my private practice.
My goal is to get as much education, resources, and support out there as possible to the trans and gender-questioning persons of the world. Through the magic of the internet I am able to do this through my Conversations with a Gender Therapist YouTube channel and Facebook page, media and podcast interviews, and the content you’ll find on this website.
