As counselors we realize gender identity is not a mental illness or disorder. Gender Identity counseling significantly helps someone who is unhappy with or doesn’t identify with the gender assigned at birth. Gender Dysphoria simply means unhappiness with a person’s assigned gender, and is not an obsessive disorder.
Whatever your personal situation, First Step Counseling Center can provide the support and advice needed to guide you through the right course of action for your empowerment. Counseling will provide a safe place for you to explore your thoughts and feelings, and we will support you on your journey.
