Transgender Support Groups
We should make clear that not all the support groups listed here are transgender themselves. Rather, they specialize in helping with aspects of being transgender in Minneapolis and transgender identity. They help with trans life and trans relationships.

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

Transgender people in Minneapolis 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 therapists in Minneapolis, transgender friendly support groups in Minneapolis, transgender friendly psychologists, and transgender friendly counselors.

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

What is the difference between Group Therapy and a Support Group?
Minneapolis Support Groups and Group Therapy both offer a safe place to explore important issues. It is important, however, to understand the difference between the two.

Group therapy in Minneapolis is led by a therapist, group psychotherapist, or group counselor, and is generally structured around an issue. The therapist guides the group through a program as the group works together to better understand thoughts and feelings. Experienced therapists lead psychotherapy groups for various ages, such as adults, and specific issues including anger management, anxiety, and coping skills.

Support groups in Minneapolis are usually facilitated by a therapist or counselor, but can also be led by members with lived experiences. Generally, a support group is less structured than a therapy group. Support groups bring together members to provide support and strength to each other, often around a common challenge such as addiction or grief.

Most therapy groups will meet for a fixed length of time with a consistent group of members, while many support groups meet for an indefinite period of time with members coming and going.
