Transgender Counseling FAQs
As a LGBTQIA+-focused counseling practice, we are very familiar with developmental components, personal nuances, and hidden truths that inform gender identity. We not only listen to the experiences that you rely on, but we also identify the components of gender that might live under the radar. We take into consideration how gender develops in the brain, how it is expressed, and give our clients tons of space to explore with safety in a non-judgmental environment. We not only bring our professional experiences and academic know-how, but also our personal stories so that you don’t have to feel like the odd one out.
Personal, safe, and non-judgmental therapy is the best. Although we like to talk about cognitive models, trauma modalities, or specific types of talk therapies, there isn’t one that fits everyone. We work in collaboration with our clients, making sure we address your concerns efficiently and confidentially.
At iAmClinic we are a team of queer, trans, and allied therapists. We believe it is important that you work with someone who has not only walked in your shoes, but has also experienced the changes you seek. You have found a good trans therapist when they can speak from life experience in addition to their academic training. You should look for a therapist who does not need you to teach them about your trans experience, but one who knows because they share that experience with you.
Talk therapy is helpful in preparing for transitioning, process anticipated and unexpected challenges while transitioning, and can help provide the resources and support letters you need for your transition.

We often say that it is our job to work ourselves out of a job. In that light, therapy sessions are collaborations between you and your therapist. We first want to earn your trust by being safe, well-trained, and capable. As the therapeutic process takes shape, it becomes a working relationship, much like teamwork. We often provide psychological education on certain behavioral patterns or relational dynamics and provide safe feedback that will help you grow in a safe environment. We also take great pride in showing up authentically, so you’ll get to know your therapist as much as we get to know you. We affirm what research tells us time and time again: It is the therapeutic relationship that is most important. As a result, therapy sessions are more of a safe place to be challenged, to be heard, and to be allowed to be honest with how you show up in the world.
The length of therapy deepens on what you would like to address and how deep you want to go. Many people like to address a specific issue, while others want to reach a new level of wholeness. Although a specific number of sessions cannot be determined, you can work closely with your therapist to get the most out of every minute you are with us.
We have a wide range of experienced therapists who offer a variety of price points. Depending on what you would like to address and how deep you’d like to go, therapy will range in price. If you’d like to set a free consultation with a therapist, they will help give you an anticipated range of the cost.
Yes. Therapy, especially therapy with queer, trans, or allied therapists, can be helpful in giving you tools to cope with, desensitizing reactions, and finding confidence to deal with discrimination and stigma. We often act as advocates when it is appropriate and help you find resources that offer support and assistance. In terms of therapy, we can use modalities like EMDR or Breathwork to help you gain the skills and insights to help you stand firm in a heterosexist, cisgendered world.
