This is a colloquial term used by the trans+ community to refer to a mental health professional that specifically does work with trans people and has experience in the realm of gender identity. Just because someone is called or calls themself a gender therapist doesn’t mean they will be trans-affirming in all cases, or that they don’t hold transphobic views.
e.g. Maurance told his father that he wanted to see a gender therapist.
