Looking for a doctor or therapist that will start me on HRT
I am a male who has always felt female and wants to be female i am looking for a doctor or therapist that will start me on hormones to do so if at all possible in the Columbus area recommendations would be great
you'll need to have a history of sessions with a licensed mental health professional who'll write a letter to a doctor regarding this. not sure whether you have insurance or would be paying a therapist out of pocket but I know of one who does skype/phone sessions via paypal (so there is no trail via insurance which keeps your job/family/etc. from finding out you've been diagnosed with gender dysphoria)... her name is kryss shane, I think she has a website.
That's not necessarily true. There are a lot of doctors who do informed consent, where they do not require a therapist's letter before you start hormones. My doctor--Shelley Blackburn at River's Edge Family Medicine--uses the informed consent model and is awesome.
