Our Core Services

    Individual therapy for adults, teens, and children.

  • Vocal feminization.

    Caroline, a former singer and voice teacher, offers vocal feminization services as a part of both the group therapy and program and individual therapy. Vocal feminization is a key component of “blending-in” as a woman for male-to-female (MTF) transgender individuals. Also offered is Feminine Comportment, which enhances the “blending-in” ability of MTF individuals.

    One-on-one vocal masculinization for the individual who is not fully satisfied with testosterone therapy.

  • Mentoring Program for Young Clients and Adults

    Children, teens, and adults benefit enormously from time spent with more seasoned and mature transgender individuals. In a typical case, a transgender individual will visit with his/her/their mentor and therapist. If the connection works, as it often does, the mentor becomes a trusted part of the family, a layperson/former patient on whom the child, teen, or adult can depend on for advice, a listening ear, and to serve as a life model.

  • Child Therapy

    Our therapists, including a Registered Play Therapist, work with children of all ages, along with their families. This population requires special expertise in the developmental stages of childhood, as well as how gender dysphoria often affects and manifests in young children. Our therapists will provide referrals to pediatric endocrinologists as needed.
