For Transgender/Gender Diverse individuals, evaluations of readiness are a standard best practice approach to 1) establish the diagnosis of Gender Dysphoria, and 2) provide recommendations to promote preparedness for making a fully-informed decision for gender confirmation interventions (e.g., hormone replacement therapy, surgical procedures). Following a new client intake appointment, an evaluation of readiness is typically completed in 1-2 sessions depending upon the individual and/or other therapy needs. All evaluations of readiness are done in compliance with World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) Standards of Care. An evaluation of readiness does not guarantee a specific outcome.
