Wanna know more about Tali Boots?
I specialize in Sex Therapy and Transgender Therapy. This is ALL I do. I am not a general therapist who has some knowledge in all areas, I focus on these two areas only, in order to give you the most personalized and educated care possible.
So, What is Sex Therapy?
Well, it covers an array of sexual and/or gender topics. In the first session, we will discuss what brought you into the office and complete an initial assessment. This will include completing a sexual or gender history and a personal history. After this is completed, it will be determined by the client and therapist together what is the goal of therapy and how we will begin working towards it. One can expect to attend 8 to 20 sessions, depending on the severity of the issue. I recommend attending therapy once a week for at least the first month and then every other week if finances are a concern. I realize that not everyone can commit to therapy 2-4 times a month, so an individualized schedule is absolutely possible.
What to expect in Therapy:
During the first few sessions, you and I will discuss what has been working and what has been a struggle. I do not want to reinvent the “wheel” so we will make small edits/changes to your daily routine until you feel as though things are beginning to get better. I utilize an eclectic therapeutic style that is very focused on 4 main quadrants of the Self: the mind, the emotions, the body and the spirit. And most importantly, I will make you feel heard and understood. Your life and your emotions and your struggles are so very real and I see YOU. Your pain is real, and so is your pleasure. I will help you find more pleasure in life by opening your definitions and experiences.
Hope and change is possible and I want to help you find this. Still wondering if I cover the issue bringing you in? Here’s an exhaustive list of what I cover and what I do not.
