What is Gender Affirmation Support?
Feeling like you don’t fit in your own body is a very frustrating experience. This is one of the reason’s that gender misalignment is such a major issue for the medical community as a whole and psychiatrists in particular. There is nothing more personal than your own body and despite the politicization of the subject, there is no one outside of the transgender community who can truly fathom what life is like in the wrong body.
At Lotus Psychiatry and Wellness, we understand that every transgender’s journey is highly unique and individual. We offer counseling and support for those in the transgender community while they navigate through the many options that are now becoming available to them. We have no prejudice as to what course someone should take with their own identity. Whether you are comfortable with tucking or binding, wanting to explore hormone therapy, or feel that it is only through a surgical intervention that you can be your true self, we are here to help you cope with the associated stresses both socially and personally those choices can bring.
