I was to have my first session with a therapist in Indianapolis.
I mentioned in an email to her that I needed someone to be WPATH certified so I could go through with HRT and SRS. She told me she was not certified but gave me the name of the only one in Indiana who is. Unfortunately I have not heard anything good about this therapist.
I was told, today, that I might have been wrong on the certification being a must. A college student I know said that the WPATH is a set of guidelines, but not something the therapist needs to be certified in. A counsellor can prescribe HRT and a surgeon will go with SRS if the guidelines have been followed and two letters are present.....
Can someone tell me whether this is correct or not?
The only thing keeping me away from living full time right now is my parents not knowing. This will be remedied in September. They are celebrating their 50th anniversary and I do not want to take away from that, so I will tell them after that and before they go to Florida at the end of October...... I am 95% full time now. It's amazingly wonderful.
