"Websites like this can feel overwhelming. First, it can be hard to sort through the titles: counsellor, therapist, psychotherapist, psychologist? And what's the difference anyway? See if this helps. I'm a guide. The questions we explore together create a kind of map. The map helps you see your life more clearly. All humans need a map at some point. We feel lost or stuck. We try to change direction. We might wonder what's wrong with us and why we can't be more like other people - people who seem to find life so much easier."

I hope to draw on that hope with you, help you discover your existing resilience, strength, and ability to cope through the hard times and discomfort. I use a tailored approach for all people, because each individual is unique and deserves to be seen as such.

"The psychotherapy I provide goes well beyond the simple ways we often think about ourselves: depressed, anxious, traumatized etc. These are useful labels but for each person there is a whole lifetime leading up to those ideas. You can think about them alone, but talking with the safety and care that I provide makes all the difference. Psychotherapy is about how you talk to me, what you say, when you say it and the confidentiality creates a space where we can bring all the ways you may be with me to awareness."

Transgender (Gender Dysphoria) Counsellors
We should make clear that not all the counsellors listed here are transgender themselves. Rather, they specialise in helping with aspects of being transgender in Toronto and transgender identity. They help with trans life and trans relationships.

If you're transgender or are looking for help with transgender issues in Toronto or for a Toronto transgender counsellor these professionals provide transgender counselling and transgender friendly care.

Transgender people in Toronto may meet the criteria for a diagnosis of gender dysphoria (historically called gender identity disorder (GID)) "only if being transgender causes distress or disability." This distress is referred to as gender dysphoria.

The professionals listed here include transgender friendly counselors in Toronto, transgender friendly counsellors in Toronto, transgender friendly psychologists, and transgender friendly therapists.

Counselling for transgender issues in Toronto can help those living a transgendered life or transgender relationship; or family members coming to understand the life of their transgender child or sibling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Toronto are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in Toronto you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in Toronto and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in Toronto or family therapy in Toronto.
