I saw Liz Gonzalez for therapy in order to get my letter for hormones. She is very kind and very experienced with the LGBTQ population. I already knew what I needed to do for myself, so the required therapy was kind of a drag, but seeing Liz made it better than it could have been and the therapy was actually helpful for working out some family issues I had. CAPS follows WPATH standards but the new guidelines do not require a set amount of therapy sessions. They started going with the new WPATH guidelines during what was supposed to be my required 12 sessions, so I had my letter after they made the change to their policy (9 or 10 sessions).
