Being Transgendered is Hard...
But It Doesn’t Have To Be!
Kimball Jane Sargent is a gender therapist who enjoys
working with Cross Dressers, Transwomen and Transmen. She knows being
transgender does not mean being mentally ill. Being transgender usually
means that a person has spent his/her entire life alone with no one
knowing who they really are. Kimball enjoys being a "safe,"
non-threatening, supportive person to whom anyone can talk to about who
he/she really is, often for the first time in his/her life. Seeing
someone sit with her and experiencing the trust and the reassurance
he/she needs to talk about his/her true identity for the first time is
what she enjoys most about her work. Kimball says, "When you come into
my office, you will be accepted for the person you have always known
yourself to be." Kimball sees gender issues as being family issues, as
well as their being very personal issues. She tries to help each person
who comes to her find a way to deal with his/her gender issues in a
manner that his/her family and friends will be able to understand.
Kimball tries to help family members so that they can provide the love
and support that each transgender person deserves, as he/she makes
whatever type of decisions about leading an authentic life that he/she
needs to make. She created this web site to help educate people about
transgender issues, and most importantly, to provide some hope and
guidance for both the transgender and his/her families.
