Credits: None available.

Standard: $32.00
Members: $22.00


The counseling experiences of 13 transgender and gender nonconforming individuals were examined via semi-structured, in-depth interviews. Using multiple standards of trustworthiness (e.g., member checking, negative case analysis), researchers analyzed each interview from an interpretative phenomenological analytic framework. Four main themes were identified: (a) mental health professional selection process, (b) trans-affirmative approach, (c) trans-negative approach, and (d) support systems beyond counseling. Implications for implementing culturally responsive TGNC affirmative counseling, TGNC sensitive counselor training, and social justice oriented research are discussed.


  1. Examine transgender and gender-nonconforming clients’ counseling experiences.
  2. Explore factors that support culturally responsive affirmative counseling for transgender and gender-nonconforming clients.
