The Not So Helpful, Help


… And, I never saw her, again.

Don’t get me wrong. If you think you would benefit from counseling, IES does provide for these services, and you should give it a chance. However, finding a someone who has worked with gender therapy might be more difficult. I’ve been through too many short term therapist where all we did was have me teach trans*101 to them. That doesn’t do me a whole lot of good (and usually they don’t care all that much). I didn’t want to waste all that time and energy. Besides, we didn’t gel very well.

Being in a new country can take a toll on you, though. You should try to find someone you can talk to when you need it. Or don’t. I mean, I’m not even following my own advice. If your looking for gender therapist specifically, there are a few out there willing to do sessions over Skype.
