My experiences living in Africa, Europe and the USA (moved here in 1997) have fostered my keen appreciation for various teaching, learning, and developmental approaches to counseling/therapy. My counseling style is direct, compassionate and interactive. I believe the most critical aspect of therapy requires a therapist to go beyond just sitting and listening. I believe in establishing trust in order to truly be able to have a positive impact.

Transgender 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 Rockville and transgender identity. They help with trans life and trans relationships.

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

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

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