Are you questioning your gender? Tired of living with dysphoria and not being seen for who you are? Ready to drop gender expression that doesn't belong to you? Not feeling comfortable with your gender occupies a big portion of your mind. Creates anxiety, depression, and feelings of gender dysphoria. Interferes with your relationships. Talking to someone, often for the first time, helps ease these feelings. Even if you are not ready to take any steps, letting someone in on your secret helps. Start becoming and being seen in your true gender with the help of a gender specialist and get the expertise you need to transition.

You deserve the best when seeking guidance about your gender identity and its important to find a gender specialist who specializes only in gender. Feel free to learn and get started by visiting helpful posts on my website and watching DR Z PHD youtube channel to explore information that will help you start being seen in your true gender.

While there are LGBTQ friendly therapists out there, only very few exclusively specialize in gender issues. If you are looking for a specialist, I encourage you to set up a complimentary in person consult with me. Each individual experiences gender incongruence differently. While some are ready to begin gender transition via HRT or surgery, others are not.
