I’m sorta officially starting my gender journey. Anyone have any advice on what sort of therapist I should seek out?

      gender affirming therapists! sometimes therapists put on Psychology Today that they're LGBTQ+ friendly but then end up not knowing anything about transgender and/or nonbinary people, so be sure to watch out for that! I definitely recommend having a 10 min phone call consultation to see if they're the right fit

      100% agree with what benny says! would like to add on that gender therapists are a really good option too if you're looking for someone specifically trained in gender. most therapists are trained in the topic of gender and being transgender from my understanding but gender therapists are likely more knowledgeable and are there to specifically help you with your gender identity and journey

      Nervous can be good though, it’s all about what you do with it. Get jitters, get over them, do what you gotta do. Just remember that you are the most important person in your life! ❤️

      I have not had a gender journey but when it comes to therapy or any behavioral health you need to find someone that you are comfortable with. If you are able to shop around until you find someone that feels kinda like a friend. No matter what the issues are that may come up or you may face it’s best to find someone you can really open up to. I don’t know you but I am proud of you! It’s hard to start any kind of journey like the one you are.
