At the International Center for Transgender Care, our team of doctors and therapists are highly experienced in treating children and adolescents with gender dysphoria. The holistic therapy division at ICTC is headed by Caroline Gibbs, a licensed clinical therapist and an expert in transgender mental health issues. Here, our focus is on treating the patient as a whole person, improving coping, and relieving any distress related to gender dysphoria. All of our services are offered in a knowledgeable, respectful, and empathetic environment.
Children who are transgender or gender non-conforming often benefit immensely from gender therapy. Talking with an expert can assist the patient to clarify and accept their gender identity, cope with stigma related to gender diversity, and better manage distress related to gender dysphoria. Additionally, because anxiety and depression are common in gender non-conforming youth, therapy at ICTC often focuses on treatment for these conditions.
