At HEaRE Lab, we put together a list of affirming providers and clinical sites in Oklahoma. If you are looking for referrals, feel free to contact the lab director. Please be as specific as possible about your needs when you reach out. For example, "I am looking for an affirming mental health provider in Oklahoma who can provide low-cost, private pay services. I want to see the therapist in person and I would prefer for them to be a psychologist."
