I offer comprehensive Gender Assessments for adults who are working with another therapist, or who need a second letter for gender affirming surgery. These assessments include a clinical interview and psychological measures. Each assessment will outline gathered data, which support a detailed reccommendation around the potential best aveues going forward. If clinically appropraite this assessment can serve as the document needed for gendere affirming medical interventions such as surgery. Gender assessments are also useful for other mental health providers who are working with a gender expansive individual and do not feel they are able to/or believe it would be best to obtain the assessment from another therapist.
Gender assessments for adults are often scheduled on Saturdays. The assessment takes roughly 2.5 hours (with a 10 minute break in the middle). During this block of time, the clinical interview will take place; as well as, the psychological measures. We will meet again one week later (included in the price) for a feedback session, in which I will discuss with you my reccommendations and allow ample time for quetions to be asked.
Adults who are engaging with this writer for individual mental health counseling can recieve a comprehensive assessment after 12 sessions, with one additional payment. Please note that I require at least 12 weekly sessions in order to write a gender assessment/readiness letter for gender affirming surgery and at least 8 weekly sessions for gender affirming hormones.
