"My passion is supporting the LGBTQ+ community & expanding access to high-quality gender affirming services. This includes assessment/letters of support for HRT/Surgical interventions. I'm passionate about supporting those questioning, curious or struggling with these changes for themselves or their family members. I believe everyone has their own unique way of navigating the world based on their experiences, conscious beliefs and unconscious thought. I am a very laid-back therapist and you will find that I tend to "tell it like it is". Unrelated, I can also assess to provide in-home behavioral services for kids ages 3 to 18. "

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

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

Transgender people in Iowa 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 Iowa, transgender friendly therapists in Iowa, transgender friendly psychologists, and transgender friendly counselors.

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

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