Jeanne A. Nugent

Trans/GNC/LGBQ Affirmative

I view psychotherapy as a collaborative project aimed at an understanding of oneself and others in a way that helps to negotiate life with effectiveness and joy. My approach involves fostering an atmosphere in which attentive listening, safe expression of thoughts and feelings, and gentle suggestions promote personal growth. Changes in relationships or careers, personal losses and new beginnings, long-term recovery, and sustaining emotional support are some of the issues that benefit from one-on-one therapy. While I work with a diverse trans/GNC/LGBQ clientele, additional areas of expertise include: interpersonal conflict and communication, cultivation of emotional intelligence, disturbances in mood and personality, and long-term recovery from substance and behavioral addiction.
