    Hi. I’m new here & wondering how can you get a gender dysphoria diagnosis or find a gender therapist.

    In my specific situation, I live in the salt lake area in Utah & have Medicaid- answers specific to that situation are appreciated, but general answers are also appreciated, as they can help others reading this who live in other areas & circumstances. Thanks guys

      You receive a diagnosis by visiting a licensed mental health professional (Therapist. Psychologist. Psychiatrist, etc.). It varies somewhat per state per country. I’m a Psychologist and I practice in Illinois. As far as having Medicaid you simply have to find a provider that accepts it. Planned parenthood is very helpful if there is one nearby.

      I can only tell my story, maybe it will help. I came out to my wife as a lifelong closet CD in March, just as lockdown began. There then followed 4 months of self analysis, then weekly zoom counselling with a gender therapist in the U.K., alongside a 💩 load of reading, watching YouTube videos, and asking questions on CDH before ‘graduating’ to TGH. All I can say is that so many stories mirrored my own experience and feelings. I have been constantly doubting myself, wondering if the emotional stress of lockdown, the freedom of having told my wife or some kind of breakdown was making me think I was transgender. But, I’m now quite sure, and I have an appointment at a specialist klinik in a few weeks.

      I found ‘the gender channel’ ‘Dara Hoffman fox’ and ‘dr Z‘ all helpful, but there’s loads of others too.
      good luck and dm me if I can be of any more help.
