Aaren Connors Therapist Bio

About Aaren Connors

Our lives are shaped by the stories that we carry with us. Healing begins when we can safely share them with others. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process in which we get to recontextualize those stories through truthful and empowering reframes. Clients who work with me tend to find that I often weave their passions into the work we do together. Therapy is best done when we can show up authentically. The therapeutic relationship is arguably one of the most important factors that determine success in therapy. For that reason, I strive to create a space where there is mutual respect, trust, and authenticity.

I am a queer and nonbinary therapist who specializes in working with transgender, nonbinary, and gender expansive individuals. I have experience working with individuals, including youth, around concerns of gender identity development, gender dysphoria, and transition. Additionally, I am also trained to address a wide variety of concerns, including depression, anxiety, and trauma. Whether you are coming to therapy seeking support with these concerns, or seeking a therapist who understands your lived experiences as a trans person, I welcome you. Additionally, I am personally and professionally passionate about geek and gaming culture and I invite you to bring your own passions into our work together.

My goal is to meet you exactly where you are on your journey. I strive to create a space where my clients and their families can enhance their relationships with each other as they work through the confusion and discomfort associated with growth. I invite you to reach out to me to ask any questions you may have and confirm that I am a good fit for you.
