     "I am a professional counselor with 12 years experience in the field. I specialize in L.G.B.T. issues, especially those related to being transgender. I am currently in transition preparing for surgery myself so I can have empathy for those preparing for or whom have entered into transition themselves. I provide individual, relationship and family therapy. I work within the guidelines of WPATH and have the ability to provide letters for those in need of such for gender identity or letters of recommendation for hormone therapy. I am available most afternoons, evenings and Saturdays. I work out of a church (l.g.b.t. friendly) in Westland or can rent an office here at Affirmations, which ever is convienent for my clients. Call the number provided for a free initial assessment of your situation and to schedule an appointment. Fees for services are paid in cash/check; and are negotiable according to income. "

   Neil Sacks, LMSW   Hi! I’m Neil (he/his), and I’m a cisgender gay therapist. I take pride in providing an affirmative stance with the LGBTQIA+ community I work with. With both practice and personal experience from my own lived experiences, I aim to foster a space free from judgment to explore, heal, and cultivate a renewed sense of self. I have experience providing affirmative care to all ages, and am familiar with the complexities in navigating the social, legal, and medical components of one’s transition, including letters in support of gender-affirming care. My approach is evidence-based, eclectic, and expressive - creating space for one to live, embrace, and celebrate their own unique story. As a licensed therapist in the state of Michigan, I can also meet virtually no matter where one resides in the state.
