Gender identity can be a complicated issue to understand, especially when you feel like you are a different gender than the one assigned to you at birth. No matter if you feel like you are transgender, nonbinary, or gender fluid, the right support can help you gain clarity and feel more confident in who you are and how you express your gender identity.

Whether you are located in downtown Albuquerque, Balloon Fiesta, Corrales, Downtown, or even Eastside, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

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.
