Gender-Affirming Mental Healthcare

Service Type
Body

Everyone faces challenges. Sometimes, talking to a specialist in transgender psychology can help. If you identify as transgender, nonbinary, or any of a range of identities, you want to make sure that you find a safe space to go to.

Transgender Psychology

At UVA, we offer affirming, informed mental health services. We’re not here to treat your gender identity. Being trans or nonbinary is not the source of mental illness. Our psychologists are here to listen and support your needs as a whole and unique individual.
