As a life coach, my aim is to help parents with trans-identified teens/young adults to use this experience to strengthen their relationships and enrich their lives. I believe what our children need most from us is modeling and confident authority in our homes. If we model healthy boundaries and what it looks like to be resilient, intuitive humans who use external circumstances to inspire self-discovery and growth, I also believe our children will be more likely to have healthy outcomes. I cannot change the trajectory your child’s trans ID will take, nor can I guarantee that you can. My approach is to connect you with resources and your own intuition, helping you to reframe this experience as an opportunity for YOU to feel more stable and connected so you’re not operating out of stress and fear. Goals we would work toward in a coaching relationship would be related to YOU and how you’re showing up in your relationships with yourself and those who matter most to you. Coaching is different from and is not considered a substitute for therapy.
