This doesn't surprise me at all. When I was going through my TIF phase, a therapist tried to get me on T after only 2 appointments. By the 3rd appointment she told me she literally couldn't help me with my issues if I didn't try T.

The truth is, I think she WOULDN'T help me if I didn't try T.

I'm sorry to hear about your acquaintance.

ETA: Just realized my comment will probably make people curious whether I ever went on T, and the answer is no, I did not.

Do these therapists get kickbacks for prescribing these drugs? Investigative journalists need to go down that rabbit hole... Because I suspect there's a financial incentive for how many people these gender therapists sign-up for prescriptions, surgery, etc...

Reminds me Scientology and the Operating Thetan levels...

it's a long read but there was a really good medium article looking into the pharmaceutical industry's gross part in this:
