Educational Resources

Here are some helpful videos and good reads on a range of topics that may help you along in your transitional therapy. Many of these are required viewing/reading for my patients as a part of the educational process involved in their therapeutic transition. Some of these were created by myself, and some by other sources. 

Also, be sure to check out the Blog for interesting transgender topics!
