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.

It’s important to acknowledge that not everyone who came to this page is looking for support through their transition. Some are simply looking for a trans safe therapy space to process the rest of life’s stressors – work, relationships, trauma, the news. Your gender identity is only a part of who you are – sometimes it’s the focal point and sometimes it’s not.

Reach out today to schedule a consult with Dr. Kelly to discuss your treatment needs.

* 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.
