Letters of support for gender-affirming medical treatment
I provide assessments for gender-affirming surgical procedures. I am knowledgeable about the process of writing letters of support for cross-hormone treatment and surgical procedures as well as the WPATH Standards of Care version 8. Letters of support sessions are offered as a stand-alone service; meaning that you can schedule sessions just for an assessment, rather than ongoing therapy. As and affirming therapist I am committed to not being a gatekeeper in trans healthcare. People may use insurance benefits for sessions, or pay the self pay rate of $150 per session. If using insurance benefits there is a two session minimum before your letter will be completed. If self pay I do not require a minimum number of sessions before your letter will be completed.

With the increased visibility of the transgender community more industries and individuals are finding the need to increase their knowledge and understanding of issues that affect the transgender community. These courses designed for behavioral/mental health clinicians, human resources professionals, students, managers, and anyone who would like to develop strategies toward practicing cultural humility within the transgender community.
I am an experienced lecturer and trainer on practicing cultural humility in a gender fluid society and transgender homelessness. Through my clinical work I have seen firsthand the effects of gender discrimination on my clients' mental health. Discrimination, such as housing and employment, creates a barrier to gender diverse individuals obtaining safe, secure and affordable housing. The lack in such services leaves this vulnerable population with little to no options for survival. In turn many of these individuals succumb to homeless, limited education and unemployed. Without these foundations of support some of these individuals turn to ‘survival’ sex work or other underground economy work for survival. Research shows this population is at higher risk for anxiety, depression and suicide.
