      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)

      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

        @Ethan_Higginbotham 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)

          @Ethan_Higginbotham 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/

          @Ethan_Higginbotham 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!

      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.
