For those seeking letters for HRT/SRS (hormone replacement therapy/gender affirming surgery), I am qualified to write these letters to any provider in the U.S. requiring a letter from a therapist, mental health counselor, and/or Master's level provider. I write each letter specific to you and your needs, based on the requirements your physician/insurance carrier gives you. Be sure to ask all relevant parties for their content requirements to ensure the letter I write for you will be accepted. Letters that require rewriting as a result of incorrect/insufficient information from you will require an additional session and payment to correct the letter.

HOW TO: When you have found a medical provider, make your case for simple informed consent for the treatment you want. If you still would like a letter for your provider, find out what their requirements are for the letter (and those of your insurance carrier if applicable), then contact me for an appointment. You'll need to provide the following info before we can review/pass off your completed letter:

1. your date of birth

2. your name (as it appears on your records)

3. the medical name of the hormone/procedure you're having

4. How old you were when you began to identify with a different     gender

5. if/when you began HRT or had gender-related procedures

6. do you have a support system? who's in it (friends, family, etc.)

7. the name of your provider and/or insurance

8. their office mailing address
