Melissa Leonhardt, MA NCC LPC
About Melissa Leonhardt
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (#5208) and Nationally Certified Counselor with an MA in counseling. I have 25 years of experience. I am not a medical doctor and cannot write prescriptions for medication. However, I will write the recommendation letter for hormone treatment if that is your goal and is appropriate for your situation. I can also write letters for chest augmentation and other related gender surgeries (GRS/SRS and Orchis) has strict requirements included the need for two letters from different therapists). My letters are accepted by all (with rare exception) Endocrinologists and surgeons.
I have a dedication to helping the LGBT community with relationship issues and everyday issues. I have been with my wife for 28 years (legally married 4 years). My wife and I have an 18 year old son via artificial insemination. I am informal when it comes to my counseling style and of course, everything is client centered. I can also help you with issues regarding depression, anxiety and relationship issues as well.
