"An exciting moment happens in therapy when a personal challenge is examined from a renewed perspective. In that moment, what once seemed difficult can take on new meaning. It has the potential to become a defining moment that inspires continued change, growth, and healing. Furthering this process is the potential realization that these ideas were already innate and just awaiting connection."

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

Counseling for transgender issues in Chicago 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 Chicago are able to work with a wide range of issues.
