Tabi Evans, PsyD (they/them)

Healing happens with community and support.

I am providing telehealth services only.

The past few years have led to major increases in stress, uncertainty about health and safety, experiences of social isolation and depression or anxiety, and collective trauma (often leaving an unequal burden on Black folks and other diverse communities). This can make it difficult to find joy, experience pleasure, and be active participants in our own lives. I provide evidenced-based supportive therapy for trans and gender-nonconforming (TGN) young people (6-18 years old) and young adults (18-30s) who are dealing with these situations and are experiencing anxiety, depression, or are having difficulty adjusting to significant life events.

I have special training and substantial experience working with TGN folks. I understand the unique and frightening threats towards TGN people happening in our country today. The impact of these threats include and move far beyond access to life-saving medical care. Threats to our wellbeing affect our ability to be our whole selves while at school, at work, when meeting new people, or at soccer practice. Our bodies are not meant to function with such high levels of stress over long periods of time. Additionally, it can be confusing for people at various diversity intersections to know, “Am I safe?” “How do I know the difference between a real threat to my safety and anxiety?” These questions do not come with an instruction booklet and produce real and valid feelings of worry, depression, and fear. You are not meant to navigate this alone; healing happens with community and support.

When working together, I consider the ways trauma may be contributing to your or your child’s current behavior. I utilize a wide range of evidence-based approaches to problem-solving. My integrative approach is informed by CBT, DBT, Family-Systems, Mindfulness, Behavioral interventions, and Biofeedback, among others. However, it is important to note that while my approach is integrative, it is also collaborative. My hope is to partner with you and learn from your own innate wisdom as we move from wherever it is you find yourself now, to wherever it is you’d like to be.

I identify as a queer, gender-nonconforming, neurodivergent, white person. As a queer neurodivergent human, my passion and experiences are rooted in working with LGBTQIA+, neurodivergent populations, and those questioning or exploring gender and/or sexuality. I provide therapy that is poly, kink, gender, body-neutral, and neurodivergent affirming. I am social-justice and abolition-oriented, and I recognize my privilege and responsibility as a white provider who may work with Black, Indigenous, and/or other people of color. I approach our therapeutic relationship with humility and acknowledge that we both contribute unique experiences and identities to this partnership.
