Free Short-term counseling
Patients of the KIND Clinic have access to free short-term counseling. This counseling can be to specifically address gender transition or other issues in a person's life.
To get started, patients of the KIND Clinic can request a phone screening using the button below. Alternatively, patients can complete an in-person screening for counseling at their first Gender Care appointment at KIND.
