Transgender Counseling

Are you looking for someone that you can trust completely? Someone to help you take the next small step towards the person that you were truly born to be? During our first meeting, I will get to know you, as you truly are, even if the outside doesn’t fit just yet.

In my office, you can begin to truly experience life as your best self, to develop your very own and unique preferred future, one that you will walk out of my office and take steps directly toward.  Your unique solutions are just a phone call away.

To me, transitioning is a radical act of self love.  I didn’t transition because I hated myself, it was because I loved myself enough to believe I deserved to be happy while I’m alive

Dysphoria Assessments for the Transgender Community

If you are looking for a gender dysphora assessment to obtain a letter, call or email me today, and we can get started.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on Transgender Counseling

What is Transgender Counseling?

Therapy for transgender individuals is 1-1 counseling that the client knows, without even having to ask, will be a safe space to be their true and authentic self. Therapy for individuals in this space might be directly related to being transgender (maybe you are struggling to come out or to even identify if or where you fit on the trans spectrum), or it might not be related to being trans at all, but you’re hoping to connect with a therapist (who is either queer themselves or an ally) who you know is safe & won’t judge you for your identity or try to change you in any way. 

How does Transgender Counseling work?

As solution focused therapists our first guiding principle with clients in therapy is that our clients define themselves for themselves, in every way. So our first curiosities are always about your very best hopes from our work together. And once we get that answer, about the future you hope for and the version of yourself you hope to become as a result of successful therapy, our job becomes helping you to get there through helpful questions and occasional guidance. 

When is Transgender Counseling needed?

Therapy is called for and can be helpful when an individual has a hope for themselves and/or for their life that they are struggling to reach on their own. Sometimes clients are struggling with their identity as a trans person, and therapy can help them clear things up, sometimes they are struggling with family or friends and relationships in general and a helpful therapeutic conversation with an affirming therapist can be just what they need to move forward in their life. 

 

How much does Transgender Counseling cost?

Individual sessions start at $150 per 50 minute session

How long does the Transgender Counseling process take?

Helpful therapy can be as brief as one or two sessions, or, if preferred by the client, can be an ongoing process where they see their therapist regularly for several months or more. 

How do I know if Transgender Counseling is right for me?

If you are looking for an affirming therapeutic conversation where you can be your true and authentic self without judgment, and you have a hope in your life that you’re having trouble moving towards, then individual therapy that is safe for the trans community is absolutely right for you.
