Below are the hotlines, websites, organizations, books, and other media I recommend to my clients and their friends and families. I have worked with, utilized, and/or read each of these resources and encourage others to give them a try. If you have questions about any of these resources, please contact me.

For safety reasons, I do not publicize a list of LGBTQ+-affirming providers, including other therapists, psychiatrists, primary care providers, clinics, voice trainers, or surgeons. These resources absolutely exist in Texas; please contact me directly for information or referrals for LGBTQ+ services.
