Beyond the Couch with Bridges
Holding Space for Both Myself and Family with Tyler Mafi
Show Notes

This week, Christie chats with Tyler Mafi (@therapywithtyler) about how his transition led to the reshaping of his relationship with his family and, as a result, more open conversations around queerness and mental health. Tyler also shares how empowering his clients to reflect on their senses of self motivated him to more actively engage with his own identity. They also dive into how to balance and hold space for the needs and desires of both oneself and one’s family.

Tyler (he/him) is an NYC-based queer, trans, multicultural therapist committed to providing you a nonjudgmental, brave space to explore your identity, relationships, and sense of purpose.
