I’m Clayre Sessoms, a registered clinical counsellor who provides trans*-affirming individual counselling for adults and older youth throughout BC. My services are offered online or by phone. My pronouns are she/they and I identify as trans, queer, and a person with a physical disability.

Want to learn more about this service’s work with Two-Spirit, trans, LGBQ+ people?

We invite all service providers listed on MindMapBC  to answer the following questions. These questions were developed in collaboration with community members, researchers, and mental health and other service providers. They're intended to help us understand what a service provider or organization is doing to affirm and support sexual and gender diverse service users.

See below for responses for this listing.
