  • Mel Whalen, MS, LLP, "I wanted to let you know about the opening of my new practice this past year. I work with hearing clients as well as those who are Deaf. I know that many people may have a gut-level "oh no" reaction to the idea, but I truly have found that those in the gender queer and trans communities are often pleasantly surprised to meet someone with a similarly marginalized experience of the world. I am affiliated with the UM Gender Services program, but work in private practice just outside of downtown Ann Arbor, and am happy to provide references to anyone who asks."
