This is so new I am waiting to take the exam that has not yet been created.I have been accompanying transgender/intersex/GNC (gender non-conforming) persons ages 8-70+ since 1992, first as a pastor and then (since 2004) as a mental health professional. Currently 1/3 of my clients are transgender/intersex/GNC. I collaborate with primary care, endocrinology, and surgical teams in South Dakota and across the U.S. I work closely with Mayo Clinic's Transgender and Intersex Specialty Care Clinic team in Rochester MN, and with other nationally-known surgical teams (e.g., Bowers, Schechter, and others).I do provide letters. I will offer therapy (if desired). My approach is that of informed-consent, not gate-keeping, so sessions include providing information as well as history-gathering and evaluation. I help connect clients with appropriate medical providers in South Dakota and nationally, as needed. I follow the WPATH Standards of Care for assessment and letters. I do offer therapy during social transitioning and HRT, as well as therapy before, during, and after surgeries, if requested.4NoLPC-MH I obtained this license in SD in 2016; I had other licenses before thisI've been in SD since 2013; I've been accompanying GNC persons since 1992After earning a PhD in clinical psychology, I completed a post-doctoral residency with an emphasis on assessment and treatment of Asperger’s Syndrome, ADHD, and related conditions. I also have over a decade of cross-cultural training, research, and work in gender-responsive trauma recovery. This background has been very helpful for many of the GNC persons I’ve accompanied. I am also engaged in education and transformation with healthcare systems – e.g., providing education for healthcare administrators, providing gender-neutral intake and EMR options, and exploring the ethics and practice of hospitality. I provide education for clinicians individually and, more formally, through an introductory workshop on gender health and the basics of counseling transgender/intersex/GNC persons. I am also involved in advocacy (with educational systems, HR departments, EEOC, ACLU, etc.) for transgender/intersex/GNC persons in South Dakota.
