According to WPATH, mental health professionals can offer important support to clients throughout all phases of exploration of gender identity, gender expression, and possible transition—not just prior to any possible medical interventions. Reach out today to discuss your needs with Dr. Kelly.

* Although there are criticisms of this model that are understood by this practice, the WPATH standards of care are the most commonly used criteria to determine “medical eligibility” as outlined by most insurance companies to cover GAP procedures.
