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.

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.
