Identity is the sense of one’s self that weaves together memories, experiences, relationships and values. At times, people have not been given the freedom to explore all aspects of their identity. Many have experienced a sense of shame or abuse in regards to their gender, sexual or racial identity. This causes the absorption of a negative narrative that detrimentally impacts the sense of self. In the therapeutic space, you can unravel the damaging impact of these narratives and begin to find a sense of peace and empowerment in who you are as a whole person, embracing all aspects of your full identity.
