Transvestic Fetishism is commonly referred to as cross-dressing. It is generally but not always, a heterosexual male who finds it sexually arousing to wear women’s lingerie or other articles of clothing. Cross-dressing does not mean that a man who dresses in women’s clothes has Gender Identity Disorder or is a transsexual. Nor does cross-dressing mean that somebody is gay.
Counseling for cross-dressers and their partners can take many forms, which is entirely dependent on your therapeutic goal. For instance, cross-dressing is no problem for some spouses, however, it is an enormous problem for others. There can be stress, shame, feelings of betrayal and confusion that cross-dressing behavior can bring to a relationship. I work to help couples collaborate on a solution that leaves both people feeling good.
