    Bravo Ali!!! I have been learning more and more about the Trans community in the past few years (I have a close friend with a Trans child). I have learned so much, especially
    from the youth Trans community. In my experience, the youth have been my teachers and
    I have developed a whole new respect and appreciation of the challenges faced by people who identify as Trans, Queer and Gender Queer. Thank you for adding to that knowledge!!

    Ali….Stay the course and you will achieve your goal and will become the therapist that helps others
