Evaluation and follow-up sessions for transgender/transsexual people or in transition
I have specialized in the transgender and transsexual community to offer evaluations and help people through the transition or to clarify questions about their gender identity. I use the standards of care for the health of transsexual, transgender, and gender Nonconforming people of the WPATH. I am capable of doing an evaluation to identify gender dysphoria in a person and offer the appropriate services according to your needs.
I have been developing since the beginning of my university training as a sex therapist psychotherapist an interest for this population. I can, therefore, write letters of recommendation and offer support, if needed, to obtain the hormones or genital surgeries for the transition.
- To obtain more information on the process of your transition, you can consult the following document: Criteria of admission for gender reassignment.
- My services are also available via webcam if you live too far away from my office in Montreal.
Cost and length of a therapy session
Sessions last for 50 minutes and cost 90$ per session. (Taxes included)
Generally, 1 or 2 sessions are sufficient to obtain the letter of recommendation for hormone therapy.
Only one letter is required to obtain breast reduction for Female to Male transitions.
It is necessary to have 1 or 2 sessions for the second letter of recommendation concerning the genital surgeries. You will be required to obtain a second letter from another health care professional to obtain the genital surgeries. ( I can refer you to competent colleagues)
A fee of 45$ is required to write the letter of recommendation for breast reduction and/or genital surgeries.
Receipt for services of psychotherapy, as a sex therapist psychotherapist are available upon request to claim the costs to insurance companies and to deduct from income taxes as a medical expense.
