Transition isn't easy. It's really quite a challenge. But one way for trans* individuals to mitigate that challenge is through gender therapy. Gender therapy is helpful resource for anyone questioning their gender identity, as well as their family and friends. It certainly isn't meant to "fix" anything, and like anything else there are dangers, but the positives are many and important, especially for those who need guidance on how to proceed. In this episode, we look at what gender therapy is and why it can be extremely valuable.
I have also included resources below (including a sample local resource) for anyone who would like more information on gender therapy and finding gender therapists. Check out local resources, if possible. Usually the best way to vet a gender therapist is through recommendations and referrals.
