Therapists in CT who work with Transgender Teens and Adults and Their Families

The mental health clinicians listed here all have some experience and/or training in helping transgender individuals and their families. All work with teens, most with adults, and some with children. Clinicians are listed alphabetically by county and then by town. When you call, in addition to the usual questions about availability, access, cost, insurance and so on, ask them about their prior experience and training specific to helping transgender clients. Here are two other questions you might want to ask:

  • Have they helped individuals and families that share important characteristics with you, such as age, family challenges, mental health challenges or other concerns you may have?
  • Are they able to provide an evaluation for readiness for hormone treatment or surgery and to write a letter when appropriate?
