 Rhonda Smith

From the submitter:

Her office staff was pretty accommodating and Rhonda Smith is Trans friendly.

I was her first transitioning client, though she has dealt with a couple of transgendered children as well. She researched the Harry Benjamin SOC for guidance, especially for the letters. I saw a therapist that claimed to be a gender specialist and after my initial visit with each of them, I determined that I would pick Ms. Smith because she was easy to talk to, paid for by my insurance, a much shorter drive and they both had the same treatment plan in mind. The nice thing is that she is in the Inland Empire , if there are any guys in need there. The only downside is that she only works 2 days a week (Tues and Thurs afternoons) and only on Thursdays in the summer.

Jack Boyan


From a patient/client:

I want to highly recommend Jack Boyan as a therapist.  Jack works with a variety of people, but also specializes in working with FTM clientele. 
Jack is my gender therapist, and again, I highly recommend him, and he happily works with FTMs. 
Jack doesn't do a lot of work on the computer, so when I asked him if he would mind if I mentioned him to sites online he emphatically said "Yes, please do."   : )
