3.

Why they became a therapist.

"I have seen a lot of mental health distress at home, and also how patriarchy, communalism and violence cause mental health distress. When I was struggling with a lot of these issues, I went to a really good counselor at the college I was studying in. That helped me to realise that I'd like to be like that for other people."

4.

What they'd like a client's first session to be like.

"A feeling of being understood and valid, and a sense that I am along-side them, next to them as we together figure out how distress can be reduced."

5.

How they make their practice a safe and affirmative space for queer and trans* folx.

"I mention my pronouns in my first interaction with them, and I tell them about my understanding of queer affirmative work. I ask their pronouns and name. I ask about the sources of distress that originate in cis-heternormative patriarchy. I also make visuals to wish on relevant days like pride month or smaller milestones in their journey."

6.

Areas of concern they address in counselling.

"So far I've been working with children, teens, adults. Older adults have been lesser in my practice. Issues we have worked on together are anxiety, depression, self esteem issues, mood swings, body image problems, unique life stressors of queer and trans people, trauma and abuse."
