Trans kids

When the Walnut Psychotherapy Center first opened in 2015, it was with the distinct intention of creating a safe space for children to explore their gender identities. A chief priority of ours is to help kids through the many complex systems that they navigate as their gender identity emerges in a way that is different from how it was scripted by the adults in their life.

 

With a keen understanding of the complex role that development plays in gender identity formation, we have a rich perception of the different levels of gender dysphoria and how to ease the discomfort around this dysphoria as it emerges in the minds and bodies of our youngest clients. We are eager to help families and kids work with schools, medical providers, extended family members and religious institutions to broaden society’s understanding of how to best tend to our trans kids.
