    I usually use Psychology Today to find a therapist: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/therapists. If you are in school, a guidance counselor or student services center may be able to help.

        that’s so awful, I’m sorry that he is like that! If you ever need someone to talk to, I’m always here! I know you don’t know me, but I’m trans as well, so I’m always willing to lend a listening ear!

        Have you heard of the Trevor Project? They have counselors you can chat with online or text for support and are dedicated to helping young LGBTQ people: https://www.thetrevorproject.org/get-help/

    I'm kinda scared of talking to a therapist rn because my life is just now getting back together and I'm afraid that if I say the wrong thing I'll get put in a mental hospital and I will lose all of my progress

      a therapist is there to listen and help find coping mechanisms to improve your life. theyre only able to legally put you in a mental hospital if you tell them that youre going to harm yourself or others. i had the same fear at first but its very easy and theyll talk to you about it beforehand (if they are professional)

    Do you have health insurance? If yes, you can contact your insurance and they might be able to give you a list of therapists. If you Google the names, you might be able to find one that lists being lgbt or an ally. Thats how ive been looking for a therapist for myself (not trans but gay and mentally ill lol)
