Transgender Therapy Counseling

Choosing the Right Gender Therapist

What's most important when choosing a gender therapist?

First and foremost - you should feel a natural and comfortable connection. Great therapy requires excellent chemistry - and a personal connection is essential to achieve that. Another important aspect is their willingness to write letters to support your need for hormone therapy of gender reassignment surgery if you think you might be heading down either of those paths. Most of us start therapy under the guise of moving forward - and such progress often includes HRT and GRS. However, you need to respect their professional decision if they won't provide such approval
….if they're cautioning you in this regard it's because they have concerns that warrant exploration before completing full transition.

America's Best Transgender Therapist

Based upon my own personal experience and those of many girls I know - there's only one gender therapist I recommend on a national level:


Dr. Angelo Pezzote


Dr. Angelo has 23 years of experience as a gender therapist, which has included: a member of WPATH, a private practice (dealing exclusively with gender issues), the Los Angeles Gender Center, the Los Angeles LGBT Center, the LGBT Community Center in NYC, Boston GLASS (supporting LGBTQ+ youth of color and their allies), and appearances as a gender expert, advocating for and empowering the trans community. 

As a Board Certified Psychiatric Pharmacist, Board Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor, and Ordained Minister to people of all faiths or no faith, he blends three fields of body, mind, and spirit, providing truly comprehensive care to guide you through all aspects of transition: psychological, physical, and spiritual. Dr. Angelo draws upon the arts and science of his broad yet specialized education, training and experience, to help you conquer life's most difficult challenges. Dr. Angelo is a published author (Kensington Books, New York, New York, 2008) with appearances on CBS News, Montel, and Sirius Satellite Radio as a gender expert.

Dr. Angelo works to optimize your total health, keeping you strong in mind, body, and spirit, so you can look good inside and out. He strives to deliver life-changing results. While his approach has been used successfully with thousands of trans men and women, it's not "cookie cutter". Each person receives a custom tailored set of skills and solutions based on their individual situations. You can become empowered to lessen your troubles, be your authentic self, and feel good. The benefits are having more: health, happiness, love, confidence, peace, and success. 


Dr. Pezzote is based in Las Vegas, but works by phone & video chat for convenient and effective gender and personal counseling. He changed my life - and the lives of many others in the LGBT community.
