Transitional Navigation

When you are physically and legally transitioning there are a multitude of things to consider. It's important to recognize that there is not just one way that everyone transitions—it is an individualized process that only you can decide how it best works for you.

With our Transitional Navigation Services we help you make decisions about how and when to transition and navigate the systems related to those changes: hormonally, physically, legally, at work and with your family & friends. We can help guide you through the process of obtaining a state ID or driver's license, a new passport, birth certificate, and a name change. We can help you arrange travel cross-country or overseas for surgery. If this is something you'd like assistance in managing, feel free to contact us.

Tahoe the emotional support and therapy dog

Tahoe is a two-year-old standard poodle. He was adopted from a shelter in Wisconsin when he was only a few months old. He's been trained to be an Emotional Support Animal and a therapy dog. Because he is a poodle, he does not bother people with any allergy issues. He does, however, offer great affection when you want it and is calming and gentle in anxious situations.
