Vocal Feminization Master Classes
Our director, a former classical singer and voice teacher in New York City, offers vocal feminization classes in small group settings. Feminine speech is a critical aspect of blending in.
Referrals & Carry Letters
We write all referral letters – for hormone therapy, puberty blockers, and gender affirming surgical procedures. We also offer referrals for weight reduction surgery and for therapeutic animal placement services. Carry letters can be helpful for safe travel in public. Our documents have never been rejected.
Feminine Immersion Program
Our Feminine Immersion Program was created to assist women in their transition by helping them develop their feminine beauty, presentation skills, and confidence in a supportive and caring environment. It is the Crown Jewel of programs for transgender women at TTI. Individuals from around the world come to Kansas City to attend this program.
Children, teens, and adults benefit enormously from time spent with more experienced and mature transgender individuals. In a typical case, a transgender individual will visit with his/her/their mentor and therapist. The mentor becomes a trusted part of the team, a layperson on whom the child, teen, or adult can depend for transition information, advice, a listening ear, and to serve as a life model. This offering can include spouses and parents of transgender individuals.
We routinely work with our psychiatrists and testing psychologist to help evaluate for co-occuring conditions and identify the best treatment in a safe and supportive environment.
Consultation with Clinicians
We provide consultation services for clinicians wishing to enhance their understanding of Gender Dysphoria, as well as fellowships for TTI certification in transgender therapy. Additionally, we collaborate with other clinicians to help patients with a comprehensive treatment plan and ongoing care. Interns and practicum students report that their work at TTI has been invaluable for ongoing study and career.
We offer a fellowship program designed for medical doctors, psychologists, clinical counselors, social workers, and other experienced clinicians. We award a TTI certification on completion of this extensive 6-month or year-long program.
Training Programs for Schools, Corporations & Community Organizations
We provide methodical training for corporations, agencies, schools, colleges, medical universities, hospitals, prisons, and other community-based organizations for transitioning and feeling comfortable on the job and at school.
