referrals for providers in colorado springs

Below you will find a list of mental health providers in the Colorado Springs area for you explore to see if any of them could be a good match for you.

They have each provided me with detailed information about their practice and approach, as well as how much experience they have working with transgender, nonbinary, and gender questioning clients.

The scale with which they rank themselves, in regard to working with trans and nonbinary clientele, can be found here (courtesy of Adam Sauceda, MA, LPC-S, NCC).

Note: “trans and/or nonbinary competent” means the practitioner is able to provide letters of support related to medical transition.
