“Nobody knows the violence it took to become this gentle.”
~ Alain Ngalani
My Approach & Philosophy
You are not too much, you are perfectly you. Are you doubting that as you read this: Perfect!
You are different, you don’t fit in, you have a major passion and interests that are intense… for approximately 72 hours. Do you constantly feel like you have to morph your body, words and mannerisms to fit in? To be worthy? You are already worth something; inherently, just by existing.
Therapy is a place to dream, scream and put it all back together again. You will arrive, again, to a place where you know that you are worthy and you do not have to hide. There is a future where you are welcome without wearing a mask. There are people that will show up for you. The real you. You deserve to find them.
As a nonbinary, gender expansive person I know that it can be hard to find your people. I have found, and am still finding, that people that will show up for me. Sometimes this looks like hour-long phone calls at 11:00pm, therapy twice a week, wiping tears with dirty laundry (no, that wasn’t underwear), and waiting for 4:00am to become 6:00am and doing the best you can with the day that follows.
Sometimes this looks like playing the piano in public because the seat was open, decorating for holidays, tattoos, coffee, and, oh-so-much laughter.
All of these look like the freedom of becoming. You are ready for this. Come on dude, you read this far. You are ready.
