Evaluation and follow-up sessions for transgender people, nonconforming or in transition
We have specialized in the transgender community to offer evaluations and help people through the transition or to clarify questions about their gender identity. We use the standards of care for the health of transsexual, transgender, and gender nonconforming people of the WPATH. Francois, Claudia & Pierre-André are capable of doing an evaluation to identify gender dysphoria in a person and offer the appropriate services according to your needs. They can write letters of recommendation to start hormonal therapy or to get top or bottom surgeries. Sarah can help you through the transition or if you are questioning and ambivalent about your gender identity as well as offer the letters of recommandation for hormone therapy or to change you name.
