Transgender voice project

I’m doing a project for a class (I’m in school for communication disorders and sciences) about transgender voice therapy. It’s something that our school clinic does, not to say that it’s a disorder, but if a person wishes to alter their output of communication in some way in order to suite their needs, it’s something that an SLP can help with. 

Our project is covering some history of treatment (which isn’t very extensive, because it’s sort of a work in progress), discrimination and sociology of gender, some cultural things, and then finally working on therapy techniques. 

What I would like to know is if anyone reading this right now who is trans has had speech/voice therapy and is willing to share their experiences? Good and/or bad? Did you find it helpful for what you wanted? Was your therapist and licensed Speech Language Pathologist, or were they a quack?
