INSTRUCTORYarrow Pospisil, MA, CCC-SLP and CNVC Certified Trainer


​My work with the transgender community began about 15 years ago as a voice and communication therapist (SLP), supporting clients to develop voice and communication patterns that align more fully with their gender identity (see more).

I also provide coaching to transgender/gender non-conforming individuals and groups in the areas of mindfulness-based communication practices, self-compassion, and empowered self-expression. Trained in trauma-sensitive practices and with a strong vision for equity, diversity, and belonging, I hold a deep care and respect for the transgender community and the often complex journey of living true to oneself. 


This learning community will pilot a 8-week training program aimed at transforming inner and outer dialogues into compassionate, empowered exchanges, leading to improved relationships and quality of life.
