Gender counseling services
We can help you find a licensed therapist in the area who can help you explore your gender identity and support you through your social and/or medical transition. They can also help with addressing behavioral concerns such as anxiety and depression.
Gynecology gender services
The Gynecology Gender Clinic provides evidence-based gynecologic care for transgender, gender non-binary, and gender queer individuals. To learn more, please refer to our Gynecology Gender Clinic page.
For many transgender patients, hormone therapy is the first medical step. We will work with you to create therapies that help you meet your goals.
Hormone therapy is medication designed to increase or decrease feminine or masculine hormones. It causes physical and emotional changes that move you toward your gender identity.
