Here's a bit about me, Rae, and my practice, GENEX.
Comfy pillows, a warm cup of coffee or tea, a calm friendly goldendoodle named Ruby, and a refreshingly unconventional therapist are all part of the welcoming and supportive environment you'll find at GENEX. When you're ready, Ruby and I look forward to meeting you. Contact me for your free 30-minute consultation and let's find out if we're a good fit. Fun fact: Goldendoodles are hypoallergenic. Ruby asked me to please make sure I let you know that. She's a *very* considerate doodle...you'll see.
Rae Bowerman (pronouns they/them/theirs) is the owner, founder, and therapist at GENEX Therapeutic Solutions, LLC, the Midwest's Gender-Expansive Resource for Therapy, Consulting, Training, and Education.
At GENEX, Rae's areas of expertise and focus are (but are not limited to) gender, sex, and sexuality. Rae utilizes trauma-informed therapeutic modalities and approaches in their psychotherapy work, prioritizing an overarching gender-expansive awareness, respect, and validation. Rae believes the key to a solid, productive, trusting therapeutic relationship comes from acknowledging each client as unique, the expert of their own experiences; this is the foundation of each and every therapeutic interaction at GENEX.
As a person in their 40s raised in the midwest who identifies as non-binary/genderqueer/genderfluid, Rae's lived experience is one of the most significant motivating factors in their work as a psychotherapist. Rae's first language is spoken English and they are also fluent in American Sign Language, having been an interpreter for 22+ years with extensive experience in behavioral health and medical settings. Rae is a member of The Midwest LGBT Chamber of Commerce, The Kansas City LGBT Affirming Therapist Guild, and ASAN (Autistic Self Advocacy Network).
