Transgender and gender diverse people and families seek therapy for a variety of reasons. While some may want therapy because of gender-specific experiences (e.g, questioning one’s gender identity, coming out, navigating the process of gender change), others may come to therapy for reasons having nothing to do with their gender identities (e.g. depression, anxiety, various life stages stress, trauma). Regardless of the reason that brings you or your loved one to therapy, the experience can be rewarding working with an affirming therapist who “gets it” – who does not need an explanation of what transgender and gender diverse identities are and is familiar with some common concerns.
