What is Gender Dysphoria?

Psychology Today defines gender dysphoria as strong, persistent feelings of identification with another gender and discomfort with one’s own assigned gender and sex. 

Gender identity problems and feelings of dysphoria can manifest in a variety of ways. For example, someone who has female sex characteristics may privately identify as a man but continue to publicly present themselves as a woman. 

Some individuals may choose to dress in clothing associated with the gender with which they identify, while others may want hormone therapy or gender confirmation surgery.

Online Therapy – Gender Affirming Online Counseling from the Comfort of Your Own Home

We offer online gender therapist services for those who want to explore their gender identity. We understand that not everyone lives close to a gender therapist, or might feel unsafe or uncomfortable seeking help in person. That’s why we’re proud to also offer our services online so you can get the help you need in the comfort of your own home.

We’ve helped countless people who struggle with gender dysphoria, and we want to help you too! We know how difficult it can be for many folks when they’re struggling with their assigned gender role – but our counselors are here to provide a safe space where you can explore your feelings without fear of judgment or shame.

We provide a therapeutic approach to mental health that is based on the whole person. We work to help you feel comfortable in your own skin by exploring your gender identity, helping you understand how it has formed over time, and encouraging healthy ways of coping with dysphoria or other forms of stress related to gender expression.

Finding a Therapist With Experience Working With Those Who Are Exploring Their Gender Identity 

When looking for a gender therapist, it’s important to look at their experience working with those who are exploring their gender identity. Not all therapists have the knowledge and training needed in order to work sensitively and effectively – so you need someone who is experienced with encouraging exploration or assessing your needs as they relate specifically to gender dysphoria.

If you’re looking for a therapist who specializes in working with those who experience gender dysphoria, please reach out to our team here at HWP. We have extensive experience helping folks work through their feelings and offer a free phone consultation to ensure we are a good fit for you.
