If you are looking for a safe place to explore questions regarding your gender and live in or near Aurora, IL, Eunoia Counseling is here for you. Or perhaps someone you love has recently “come out,” and you need a place to sort out complicated feelings and learn more.
Taking the first step to talk with a therapist to process what you’re struggling with can feel intimidating. However, if you can answer “yes” to any of the following questions, gender therapy could be very beneficial.
- Are you questioning or becoming more aligned your true gender identity?
- Do you feel uncomfortable with aspects of your body?
- Are you unable to identify with the gender you were assigned at birth?
- Are you experiencing gender dysphoria?
- Do you feel limited by gender stereotypes?
- Do you need help coming out or coping with reactions after coming out?
- Do you need help dealing with social stigmas?
- Are you feeling anxious or depressed because of your gender or sexuality?
- Are you seeking to understand your children or other loved ones better?
What Is Gender Therapy?
Gender therapy allows you to explore yourself and your questions in an emotionally safe environment with a skilled, LGBTQIA-affirming therapist who has specialized training and experience.
LGBTQIA stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex, and asexual.
Lesbian: A woman who is attracted to other women.
Gay: A man who is attracted to other men.
Bisexual: A person who is attracted to the same sex and the opposite sex.
Transgender: Transgender refers to a person who identifies with the opposite gender assigned to them at birth.
Queer or Questioning: Some people whose sexual orientation is not exclusively heterosexual refer to themselves as “queer.” A questioning person is someone who is still exploring their sexual identity.
Intersex: A person born with male and female anatomy and/or chromosomes.
Asexual/Aromantic: A person who is not attracted to anyone, male or female.
LBGTQIA-affirming therapists are dedicated to helping you improve your life and well-being. They are empathetic allies of the LGBTQIA community and understand the unique challenges you (or your loved one) face each day.
