Hi TGCD Members, this is the first publication of a list of all providers known for the transgender community. I know that this list is not yet complete, but I wanted to get this out ASAP. As time goes on, I will add more names and services available to all and I would APPRECIATE names and information about ANYONE or organization I may have missed on this first publication. ALSO, ANY feedback is appreciated regarding these providers. Thank you! Laura

"What I love about my work is helping my clients get out of pain, solve problems, and manifest their true selves. I’m a passionate ally for transgender folks, working with all sexual orientations and genders, as well as the kink and poly communities. I ran a Transgender Support Group for over 2 years, and have provided trainings for providers and the community on transgender issues since 2003. About 40% of my clients are trans or intersex youth and adults. I help people cope with disabilities, and recover from abuse, addictions, and sexual difficulties. Clients tell me they love my tranquil garden setting, and appreciate my interactive, results-oriented style. I can help you heal issues from the past, and resolve present-day problems, using highly effective holistic techniques like EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). I offer both brief and long-term work with teens, adults, families and couples, as well as phone sessions for California residents. I have over 30 years experience, and I won Impact Bay Area’s 2007 Healing Advocate Award. My scent-free ground floor office is near El Cerrito Plaza BART. To make therapy affordable, I accept Medi-Cal and have a generous sliding scale, with even lower fees possible for afternoons. I also offer the option to meet weekly for a month, and then decide together whether every other week sessions are right for you. Call for a FREE half hour phone consultation to talk about how I can meet your needs."

The Gender Identity Center of Colorado, Inc., (GIC) is a non-profit corporation organized in 1978 and incorporated in June 1980. The organization was formed to provide support to transsexuals, or those people who cross dress, or are non- traditional in their gender identity. The Center is also an informational and educational resource to the community at large. The GIC is available to anyone, male or female, who can benefit from its services or resources, including spouses and significant others, parents, and siblings. We provide support to those who are, or think they may be, transgendered or those who are the significant others (wives/husbands, boy/girlfriends, or family members) of a person who is transgender. We have a variety of resources available at the center from books and magazines to resources in the community to help everyone, no matter where they fall in the gender spectrum. We do this by offering several meetings per week from open meetings where anyone can attend to more focused groups for those in transition, cross dress or are the significant others of a transgendered person. We also do our best to protect your identity. We do this by having some rules that we ask everyone who attends the center to follow. In order to provide this service, we do ask for nominal door fees from both members and non-members utilizing our services.

"Telephone Counseling works well for many individuals, especially those living in areas where there are no therapists. I am Knowledgeable about this subject .. have worked successfully with transgendered clients in Alaska, Kansas, Tennessee, and many other states. Please contact me to explore this option. I have been supporting and working with transgendered individuals for several years. I facilitates a counseling group in Ft. Lauderdale that is open to anyone who wants to learn more about themselves or a loved one. I provide individual therapy for those people whose pain has become overwhelming, those who are transitioning, and those who have transitioned but are still in need of counseling and support. Some individuals are accepting of themselves but need help coping with their friends and families, who may have difficulty accepting that this is the same person they have always loved and cared about. Some transitioning people need to work with a therapist who will be able to write letters in order to obtain hormones, get a name change, be accepted at work, or have sex reassignment surgery. Some individuals have never been able to talk to anyone about their feelings and want to understand and explore more fully how to express themselves."

"I currently work at Howard Brown Health Clinic in Chicago. Howard Brown is the midwest's largest health center serving the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered community. feel free to check out our website at : http://www.howardbrown.org. I began my work with the Transgendered community during my graduate training years and my research focused on documenting the gender experiences of my participants and considering how therapists could be more open to gender experiences. i have been working with the Trans community for about 5 years now and enjoy my work very much. I know a lot of my clients hear of me by word-of-mouth. but, they also report many attempts to access an understanding and open therapist by looking online and are frustrated by the small lists for their area and the typically high costs of private practice therapists. One aspect of Howard Brown that is especially helpful to my clients is that we offer a sliding fee scale, which means we match the fee to their income. So money is no longer a deterrent to access the support that everyone should be entitled to. In addition, at Howard Brown, I work with a number of other highly supportive therapists who have experience supporting the Trans community."

"I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been involved in the transgender community for over 15 years. I first started training with a psychologist who specializes in working with significant others, children and families of transgender people. I continued with workshops and trainings regarding transgender issues while working at a small mental health clinic. When I opened my own practice, I obtained additional extensive training/supervision from Diane Ellaborn, a seasoned therapist whose practice focuses on transgender therapy. I also continue to attend trainings on gender issues, read extensively, and consult with other gender therapist. I am also on the board of directors of North Shore Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Youth (NAGLY). NAGLY is a youth run group (ages 14 – 21) on Boston 's North Shore . Nagly provides a safe and supportive place for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered youth to come together, advocates for programs, policies and services for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth. I am also a member of (WPATH) World Professional Association for Transgender Health, formally called the Harry Benjamin International Gender Dysphoria Association (HBIGDA). I follow the WPATH’s standards of care for the evaluation and the treatment of transgendered individuals. I provide psychotherapy for CD/TS, transgender people and their significant others and family. I also provide letters for hormone therapy and 2nd letters for SRS.".

"Aside from in-person counseling, I am also starting to offer e-counseling and phone counseling for people who are unable or not ready to meet with a therapist in person. I am aware that there are a lot of trans folks in places (like the military) where they are isolated and do not have access to a therapist who can help them in their gender journey. So I’m working on finding ways to make myself accessible to people that way as well. Affirmative Counseling specializes in providing therapy which celebrates and supports gender & sexuality diversity. We provide gender counseling, hormone/surgery recommendation letters, and support to people who are transgendered, transexual, intersexed, gender queer or questioning. We offer individual, couple, and family therapy. Office visits, outreach, telephone counseling and e-counseling."

"I am particularly sensitive to the needs of crossdressers. Over the course of a lifetime the desire to crossdress can go up and down in cycles. People often seek counseling when this desire becomes so intense that it distracts them from other responsibilities; when it creates conflicts in their relationships; or if they are questioning the meaning of the crossdressing in their lives."

BRIEF BIOGRAPHY: "I was a student of Robert Stoller MD at UCLA's Neuropsychiatric Institute. He did early studies on transsexuals. I also worked with Roger Gorski, who discovered sexually dimorphic nuclei in the brains of mammals. I was a research intern with John Money PhD at Johns Hopkins Psychohormonal Research Unit. He is famous for work with gender different people. I published my dissertation with him "Gender Transposition: a long term follow up study of 32 XY hermaphrodites assigned and reared as females" Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy Fall 1985. I presented that research at the 7th World Congress of Sexology in New Delhi. I became certified as a sex therapist at the UCLA Human Sexuality Program under Joshua Golden PhD. I was a member of the Bay Area Gender Associates, a consulting and supervision group of therapists in San Francisco, with Rebecca Auge, Lin Fraser, and William Henkin. I knew Cheryl Chase before she founded the Intersex Society of North America. I have worked with Riki Wilchins of the Gender Public Advocacy Commission. I have presented several times with Jamison Greene, past president of FTM International. I have been an activist and advocate for sexually different people in media for many years. I have appeared as a guest expert and out intersex person on Oprah, Sally, Montel, Leeza, and many other news and information shows. I have been quoted in just about every magazine that does a story on gender and sexuality. I have done many radio interviews. I have appeared in documentaries for both PBS (XXXY) and Discovery Channel (Is it a Boy or a Girl?) I have been working with sexually different people in psychotherapy for 25 years."

Great help with self analysis, passing and coming out; facilitates acceptance. Individual & group meetings for the transgendered: pre & post op support. Optional meetings with families and/or spouses of both TV & TS.

Recommendation: She is wonderful. She used the Standards Of Care as guidlines but does not always make you wait a full 3 months for a letter. It depends on each individual. She offers group and individual sessions. I've only seen her 3 times but I can not say enough good things about her. HIGHLY RECOMENDED!! (from Beck)

I specialize in: Exploration of gender identity and gender expression. Support around gender transition — information about hormones replacement therapy, gender affirmation surgery, resources to support transition, letters of recommendation for surgery. Support for parents, friends and partners of LGBTQ individuals. Feeling marginalized by society and loved ones. Addressing the realities of homophobia and transphobia."

Certification in Marriage and Family Therapy. Specialization in LGBT Issues. Dr. Etscovitz is a therapist for individuals, couples, and families and specializes in transgender issues. Transgenders are helped to recognize and to accept themselves, to handle physical changes and various relationship problems, and thus to build and maintain lives of dignity and entitlement by living their truth as much as humanly possible. Family issues (involving parents, spouses, children) are also addressed. In addition, any organized enterprise, public or private, profit or non-profit, large or small can be helped to handle transgender issues in the workplace, particularly policies and human relations in the workplace, through workshops and consultation.

Feminist therapist with expertise in issues related to gender and sexuality. Weekend hours and sliding scale fees available. "Given the growing need for gender specialists and the lack of resources for Texas residents in the more remote areas, I am now offering phone and online therapy sessions for non-local clients. My approach to therapy: My theoretical orientation is a blending of a number of approaches, including feminist, humanist, gestalt, cognitive-behavioral, narrative, and psychodynamic. I view my work with clients as a collaborative process that empowers them rather than one that fosters their dependency upon me. I also situate client difficulties within their sociocultural context, which means that I attend to such factors as sexism, homophobia, transphobia, racism, classism and other societal forces that contribute to human suffering."
