Would a Gender Therapist Be Called a Psychologist?

Question by Guppy: Would a gender therapist be called a psychologist?
There’s this therapist I’ve been looking into and she seems okay but she’s a “clinical psychologist”, not a therapist. Is that bad? Should I try looking somewhere else?

Best answer:

Answer by Clones Don’t Have 200k Pts
Yes, that’s fine. A gender therapist may be a psychologist (PhD), a licensed clinical social worker or a psychiatrist.

Whoever you see be sure they have experience with gender issues. You might ask:

Have you helped other people transition?

How many?

Do you have an endocrinologist you refer patients to?

Are you familiar with the Benjamin Standards of Care?
