GENDER & SEXUALITY
There are SO many ways to express and present gender. And so many ways to relate to sexuality. I approach each person's experience with gender and sexuality as more than a binary or even a spectrum, but as a constellation. Markers of identity, desire, community-affiliation, power, relationship, felt sense, performativity, and presentation collectively tracing the outline of a unique and often evolving experience.
You may be struggling to with the impacts of social pressures. Seeking expression for that parts of your self don't fit. You might feel comfortable with your gender and sexuality and just want to focus on other things in therapy, simply knowing that there is space for you to be accepted as you are.
Gender and sexuality can sometimes be one of those things where the more you try to understand it the more difficult it can be to simply define. Innate and performative. Fluid and constant. Highly individual. Socially embedded. Located at intersection of identity, desire, and power.
