Confidential individual therapy sessions are offered for people ages 18 and up. Individual therapy is aimed at helping people reach their identified goal(s) for change, and is tailored to one’s specific unique needs. Sessions are typically 50 minutes in length and scheduled on a varied or recurrent basis. Letters of support for gender -affirming medical treatment can be done as part of therapy. People may use insurance benefits for sessions, or pay the self pay rate of $150 per session.
Letters of support for gender-affirming medical treatment:
Transitions Therapy LLC provides assessments for gender-affirming surgical procedures. As a seasoned, trans competent therapist, Sarah Gilbert, LCSW has great familiarity with the process of writing letters of support for cross-hormone treatment and surgical procedures as well as the WPATH Standards of Care. This is offered as a stand-alone service; meaning that you can schedule sessions with Sarah just for an assessment, rather than ongoing therapy. As someone who’s committed to not be a gatekeeper in trans healthcare, Sarah does not require a set number of sessions before this letter will be completed. People may use insurance benefits for sessions, or pay the self pay rate of $150 per session. Additionally, Sarah Gilbert has signed the GALAP pledge, and provides two free sessions per month for those seeking an assessment for gender-affirming healthcare.
For licensed mental health providers who need one-time or ongoing consultation regarding their work with trans-identified clients, Transitions Therapy LLC offers individual and group clinical consultation. Investment: $160 per one hour session, $80 for a 30 minute session.
Each month, Sarah also facilitates a virtual clinical consultation group for trans-affirming providers; it’s held on the first Tuesday of each month from 9am-10:30am EST. You can register for this on the events page of this site, or by emailing [email protected]

Transitions Therapy LLC is committed to expanding the capacity for greater trans inclusivity in professional, educational, and treatment environments.
