You feel stuck…

When you’re stuck in a spiral of disconnection and fear, you can feel like there’s something wrong that can’t be fixed.

You don’t know how to explain it to others. You’re not sure what you want or need, only that it hurts.

Help! My daughter says she's a boy or gender fluid. Gender Dypshoria support for parents in Austin, Texas and online in North Carolina.

Maybe even hopeless…

You might even feel that hope is for other people.

Sure, other people can get better, but not you. If I really knew you, I’d know that. You might feel like nothing is going to get better. You might feel like you’re stuck. You might blame yourself. How can things get better when everything feels so wrong?

Help, my daughter wants to be a man and to transition. We help parents support teenagers and understand gender dysphoria.

As a parent, you’re terrified…

When you're a parent, it’s terrifying to watch your child struggle.

When you don’t know how to help, you’re left feeling paralyzed, overwhelmed, and confused. All that’s certain is the teen you love has lost her spark. You’re not quite sure why or how, only that it’s gone.

Meet Kimberly Vered Shashoua, LCSW:
Gender Affirming Therapist, Speaker, Author, & Firestarter

Gender affirming therapist for teen girls, transgender teenagers, genderqueer adults & families of gender non-binary individuals. In person and online in NC & TX.

My name is Kimberly, and I start fires. No, not really. Or at least, not literally.

I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and I help teens and young adults rediscover the spark that makes them come alive.

For many, therapy can be the first time that they’ve ever felt a sense of who they are and what they have to offer the world.

I want to see the authentic you…

I want to see you however you are: lumbering, frustrated, or with gnashing teeth. I want us to work together.

That pain is a sign that you want so much more. Your being is struggling towards a better life, even if you don’t entirely know if it’s possible.
