"I specialize in working with gender identity development (trans*, gender expansive, non-binary individuals), gender dysphoria, and sexual orientation. I primarily work with children, adolescents, and young adults. Treatment focus includes anxiety management, gender dysphoria, improving self-esteem, connection to community, relationship skills, and readiness to transition (if desired). Whether you're exploring new feelings of gender variance or have been identifying as trans* for years, there are times when falling outside the traditional gender binary can bring up feelings of anxiety, stress, or confusion. Working with a therapist trained in LGBTQIA issues and gender non-conformity can help."

Anxiety, depression, a general feeling of loneliness or feeling unloveable, all these stem from these disconnections. I value and honor each person's individual experiences and needs, acknowledging that many of us lose our sense of our uniqueness along life's path.

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 Seattle and transgender identity. They help with trans life and trans relationships.

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

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

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

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