Signs You Can Benefit from Therapy for Gender Identity

It can be difficult to decide whether you need professional help to understand and embrace your gender identity.

Here are some signs a therapist can help you:

  • You’re unsure of your gender identity.
  • You get uneasy or anxious when asked for pronouns.
  • You have symptoms of Gender Dysphoria, such as fantasizing about being another gender or feeling profound discomfort or disgust with your own anatomy.
  • You feel hopeless for being able to live as your authentic self.
  • You feel ready to transition genders but don’t know where to start.
  • You have conflict with friends or family who don’t respect your gender identity.

If any of the above describe you, it’s time to consider therapy. A good gender identity therapist won’t try to change who you are; rather, they will help you explore and embrace who you are.
