Welcome

Kansas City area Transgender Therapy

The Transgender Institute, located in the heart of the Midwest in Kansas City, Missouri, is a gender therapy and coaching organization dedicated to serving the transgender population through Transgender Growth Therapy™.  We offer in-office consultation, off-site training, coaching and therapy sessions, as well as online sessions using Skype™ technology.

At The Transgender Institute, we help you determine if transitioning is an appropriate course of action and assist you through the various stages of the transition process from either male-to-female or female-to-male.

These are the benefits you can expect to receive while attending therapy and coaching sessions at The Transgender Institute:

  • Clarity about the decision to pursue gender transition.
  • Familiarity with the various types of transgender extending from crossdressing to transsexualism, with your place on the gender spectrum, and with your possible options.
  • Knowledge about the various stages of the gender transition process.
  • Self-awareness related to how your transgender identity fits within your individual identity.
  • Referrals to endocrinologists for hormones, electrologists and laser specialists for hair removal, and surgeons for facial feminization and sex reassignment surgeries, along with top surgery for female-to-male patients.
  • Issuance of “carry letters.”
  • Direction to hair stylists and make-up artists.
  • Guidance in movement, voice and wardrobe.
  • Recommendations for internet sites, films and books to further your personal gender exploration and transition.
  • Coming-out guidance for friends and family, at school and on the job through letters, presentations, and one-on-one conversations.
  • Screening and treatment for psychological and emotional issues that may co-occur with gender dysphoria.
  • Sense of well-being, as the gender therapeutic process moves forward.

By moving steadily and conservatively through the steps listed above, you can expect to live comfortably within your gender identity.
