Looking for a therapist to write my letters

Dr. Reed, I have been a trans-gendered woman for 6 years and pass very well.  Have no ambiguities about my transition as I have felt this way since childhood.  Can you recommend a transgender savy therapist in Wisconsin?  Once I have my letters I’d like to schedule in with you for a MTF vaginoplasty at the Reed Centre in Miami this June  Rena  PS Could you enclose some MTF vaginoplasty photos of what I may expect?

Dear Rena,

The longer you have been living as a woman (good test… using the ladies bathroom without any problems), the less likely you need therapy.  What you do need are letters of therapy clearance.  2 letters are required for irreversible genital surgery such as orchiectomy or vaginoplasty.  While some patients have already seen a therapist, and for those we say, allow your therapist to update the letter with specific mention re: the operation you are seeking.   Otherwise, we have a list of therapists who will interview you over the phone with skype.  Here’s the list

Please call me with any questions or concerns,
