Online Counseling in Texas for Transgender Teens, Adults & Families
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?
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?

Transgender Counseling Online in the State of Texas
I’ve grown up all in and around Texas, and I can attest that some areas have a lot more stores, banks, and support than others.
If you live in a smaller town, there might not be any therapists for miles around who have the expertise and skill to help you explore your gender identity. You might have to choose between making a long drive through Hill Country and seeing friends, cooking dinner, or even catching up on sleep.
Online counseling cuts through that time and expense. You get to talk to a professional on your schedule, in your home, with no disruption to your daily life. Even better: no one is asking why you’re going to the office building or spending hours each week away from home.
Is Online Counseling Effective for Transgender Teens & Adults?
Online counseling covers the same issues we’d talk about in counseling for teens or counseling for adults - it’s just a different venue.
In the past, we’ve all heard people criticize how thing online “aren’t real.” This thinking has been overtaken by online dating, online support groups, and YouTube and Instagram superstars. It’s clear we can learn from, vent to, and bond with people online.
Through online counseling, I’ve formed a therapist-client relationship with many people. We can use secure video, phone, and email programs to have the same kinds of conversations we’d have in an office. It now just takes place in your living room (or anywhere in the state of Texas!)
