Gender Affirming Medical Intervention Letters


Helping Adult Individuals Who Are Needing a Masters Level Mental Health Clinician Letter For Their Upcoming Surgery!

Life comes with a lot of constant worries and concerns.

 

Most people who get a Gender Affirming Medical Intervention Letter feel this part of the process can bring up a lot of anxiety. Perhaps you can relate. Maybe you know you’d be happier if you made the changes your imagining but it feels safer and more comfortable to stay the same. Maybe you’re aware that you need to make the call to schedule this appointment but are feeling afraid of what the counselor may say about your identity or worthiness of getting surgery.

 

Stuck in doubt and feeling afraid that this surgery won’t work out, you may feel like life is being spent on worrying all the time.

 


 

Do You Feel Worried, Overwhelmed, Avoidant?

 

Do any of the following resonate with you?

 

I am feeling a lot of discomfort around a particular body part, I just can’t stop thinking about how it makes me feel.

I can’t have the sex life I want because of the dysphoria I have regarding certain parts of my body.

Certain parts of my body "out" me in public causing me to be in dangerous situations for not passing in the way I need to.

I have found a surgeon but just need a letter to get the process moving.

I have a surgery date scheduled and my insurance won’t approve my procedure until I get this letter in.

I’m ready for this surgery, but I’m so afraid that my counselor will tell me that I’m not “trans-enough” and will halt the process.

I am working with a mental health counselor but they won't write me this letter because they say they aren't trained, I just need someone to do the letter for me so I can keep working with my primary counselor.

 

If any of these sound true for you, I want you to know that many of my clients have shared with me that it was difficult for them to come in. It’s a hard step to take. But getting a letter doesn’t have to be a painful process. It takes courage to ask for this service and I intend to make it as smooth and transparent of a process as possible.

 

Even if you don’t believe you deserve affirming care, you do.

How Gender Affirming Medical Intervention Letter Sessions Work

 

Gender Affirming Medical Intervention Letter Sessions consist of one 85-minute, one-on-one session that help me understand broadly about your life and desire for surgery. In addition to listening, I will share thoughts when it’s helpful, I play an active role. Here’s how it will work step-by-step:

 

1. First, I provide a safe, accepting space so that you will feel comfortable sharing your struggles with me.
2. I will ask a series of questions about your life, including but not limited to: experience with gender, info about your upcoming surgery, your relationships, self care, activities of daily living, current and past mental health symptoms/treatment, current and past substance use history/treatment, current medication use, medical challenges, and plans for recovery.
3. I will offer any referrals or suggestions as appropriate.
4. We will discuss informed consent, discuss any questions or concerns you have about your procedure, and I will direct you to another individual if I am unable to answer a specific question.
5. You will sign a Release of Information (ROI) for me to make contact with your surgeons office (this is who I will send the letter to).
6. Usually I will send you a draft of the letter within 72 hours of our meeting via secure electronic portal messaging.
7. You will provide feedback regarding the draft, so I can make changes accordingly.
8. Once the draft is approved by you, and the ROI is returned, I will sent the letter to the surgeon and secure portal message you an original signed letter for your records.
9. This whole process can be as quick as a week or as long as two.

 

A Gender Affirming Medical Intervention Letter can positively change your life. It can help you let go of what’s holding you back!
