Transgender individuals who come to speak to our therapists  are looking for different things. Some need to explore their gender orientation (with all the possibilities that entails)  while others know with certainty they want to transition. Others still, seek and find fluidity in gender.  We help people gain insight into what gender means for them and what choices are right. We make referrals to medical professionals and see people through any medical process they may choose.
