Austin Transgender Counseling
Have you ever gazed at a cute dress or a cool jacket and wished you were another gender so you could try it on?
Do you feel like a pro at faking social interactions - and just wish you could be real?
As a parent, do you struggle finding the line between pushing your teen to fit in and avoid bullying and nurturing pride in the ways they’re unique?

It doesn’t have to suck forever.
Counseling for transgender folks in Austin, Texas
Online therapy available now. In-person Austin counseling starting September 2019.
In the meantime, you can begin online therapy right now! We currently offer counseling online for transgender teens and adults. This fall, you can transition to meeting in the office, or continue connecting online.
Prefer online counseling? Here are some benefits of transgender therapy online.
I find a lot of people prefer online counseling to traditional counseling. You don’t have to fight traffic (*cough* I-35 *cough* SXSW *cough*). You don’t have to carve out a chunk of your day just for therapy. And you can have the therapist who is the best fit for you, not just someone who is close by.

You’ll find support, whether you identify as transgender, agender, non-binary, genderqueer, genderfluid, or even if you’re not sure yet. We offer a safe space to explore your feelings.
Vered Counseling also supports parents of transgender and gender-nonconforming teens.
Parents often have questions about their child’s gender identity. They also wonder how their child’s physical, mental, and emotional health may be impacted. We provide a space for parents to learn about transgender issues.

Counseling for transgender young adults in Austin
Many transgender people develop a mistrust of therapists - for a good reason. Too many people claim to have experience or knowledge, but end up saying or doing harmful things.
Vered Counseling strives to be a knowledgeable, compassionate, and safe place for transgender folks.
Our work is trauma-informed. We focus on creating an environment of trust even if we’re not focusing on trauma itself. Transgender young adults can get help for depression, anxiety, PTSD, gender dysphoria, and a number of other mental health issues. We also write letters for HRT (hormone replacement therapy) and SRS (sex reassignment surgery).

Life may be hard, but it doesn’t have to suck forever.
