Casey says: “I saw Battle twice. Personally, he’s a very nice man, but he’s a hair on the expensive side if you don’t have insurance and he’s very old-school and traditional in his approach to treating Transgender patients. For these reasons, I’ve heard mixed reviews of him from otherTtranspeople in the area. He works for some and for others he doesn’t.”

Casey says: “The rate for students is $5 per session, and they can also do sliding-scale for non-students. I’ve personally been getting my therapy (Trans-related and otherwise) there for about a year and a half now and I highly recommend them. The students are extremely well trained and knowledgeable in regards to LGBT issues. This is the only place I’ve received therapy services where I DIDN’T have to explain anything to them.”
