I saw my first trans client in 2011 and added a number of trans clients between 2012 to the present. I also recently led a trans support group in Los Angeles. before moving back to Boulder.

Please describe your treatment approach (e.g., cognitive behavioral, experiential, body-centered, DBT, etc.).

My approach is eclectic and fundamentally relational; I have a warm personality that invites a secure. safe relationship in which to heal, grow, and explore. I have training in various modalities including DBT, Psychodynamic/Psychoanalytic, Gestalt, Body-centered, Postmodern, and Mindfulness-based approaches. I meet my clients where they are in the moment and accordingly choose how to proceed.

Chest Surgery-1 or 2

How do you assess readiness for Hormone Therapy and or Surgery?

Clinical Interview

If there have been cases in which you have determined that a client does not meet eligibility requirements  for hormone therapy or gender surgery, what are the criteria under which you have denied a request for a letter (or cases in which you anticipate that you would deny a request for a letter)?

I would postpone certain surgeries and perhaps even beginning hormone treatment only if the client has not spent significant time in/trying on the gender role of the desired biological sex.

No.

Yes.  This is communicated verbally by me.
