TransgenderIn-Person and Virtual Sessions
Providing therapy for transgender individuals and their families has been a great privilege. Serious symptoms associated with transgender dysphoria may include severe depression, self-harm behaviors, and suicide attempts. The impact of witnessing the relief and, at times, the euphoria that may take place when the individual finally makes their first consultation appointment to start hormone therapy, is impactful to witness as a therapist.
Counseling the family through the many stages of loss they may experience along with anger, frustration, and disbelief is a critical factor in assisting the individual towards attaining a successful and healthy transition.
Treatment intervention may include:
• Talk Therapy
• Play Therapy
• Art Therapy
• Puppet Play
