Near the end of my doctoral studies, I spent 4 months working with patients and community members who identify under the trans umbrella (transgender, non-binary, genderqueer, and other gender identities) within Eskenazi Health’s Gender Wellness Program. I co-led a supportive group for transgender and gender non-conforming folx. I spent time with patients of varying sexual and gender identities, listening to each narrative and providing quality care. I utilize affirmative care across all practice settings in which I have provided care, including skilled nursing facilities, academia, and community. I also specialize in psychosocial occupational therapy, improving daily livings skills for those with varying mental illness.
