Doctor’s Letters

As a gender therapist, I have a great deal of experience writing referral letters for hormones and surgery. My commitment to clients is to make that process efficient and affordable. I am opposed to the “gatekeeper” mentality that has plagued therapy for so many years; just because you want to begin hormones or have surgery does not necessarily mean that you need ongoing therapy. Of course, if there are other issues that you would like assistance with – such as anxiety or depression – then we can certainly discuss further therapeutic sessions or alternative resources.

Your gender consultation (whether for hormones or surgery) typically takes one session and is $135. This flat rate includes both the meeting as well as any paperwork you might need. For example, in addition to the doctor’s letter, some people would like to change the gender marker on their state ID or drivers license. Doing so would be included in the $135 fee. After our meeting, you won’t have to wait for your letter: I will write it and have it ready to go within 24 hours.
