About Jaxon Shaffer

 

 

As a non-binary clinician, my work is heavily focused on affirmative care for clients of all ages, partners, and families who have felt other-ed because of their identity or various identities. I strive to assist my clients in accessing their authentic selves and living to their fullest potential. This work may take the form of recognizing and restructuring harmful internalized messages or thought patterns, accessing language to better communicate needs, exploring gender or sexuality, looking closely at relationship dynamics that are causing stress, pursuing options for gender affirmation, or getting general anxiety under control.

Though every human being is unique, we often try to fit into rigid societal expectations that are not suitable to us. As a result, we can begin to experience strong feelings of guilt and shame. It is my goal to empower my clients to challenge the barriers keeping them from seeing and utilizing the inherent wisdom and strength within themselves.

My therapeutic style is collaborative, curious, and also direct. If you believe that I would be a good fit for you or someone you care about, please don’t hesitate to reach out via email or by phone, I offer free 15 minute phone consultations. I look forward to hearing from you!
