Gain access to a private Google Group for gender therapists to ask questions, get resources and build your network nationally.
In group we usually consult on 2-3 clients per group depending on complexity. Cases are presented informally so no major preparation is needed.
No identifying information will be shared about clients during group to protect client confidentiality. You are asked, to keep all information (except resources) confidential. We pay attention to the therapeutic process and you and your client's identity's interactions. Group is a safe place to share the complexity involved with doing this work as a trans/non binary therapist. If you are cisgender, we are carefully aware and discussing your gender privilege and gender experience. We pay close attention to your work and the feelings you experience in the room, without judgement. This has been especially important as the therapists in the group are all impacted personally by the changing political landscape.
Video-based online consultation groups are a great way to network with therapists from all over the nation (though open to international therapists). During group, we use zoom.us which allows us to see and hear each other on one screen so that you have a feeling of being in the room together.
COST: A recurring monthly payment of $68 is billed to your credit card to claim your space in the group whether or not you attend that month. To grow our diverse gender therapist network, there are limited Lower fee slots ($30-$60) available for trans, intersex, non binary identified, disabled folks and clinicians of color while they cannot afford the full group fee. You must have had a diverse gendered caseload over the course of three or more years to qualify for group. Maximum: 8-9 members.Contact me if you are interested.
Interested in becoming a WPATH Certified Provider? I am a WPATH Certified Provider and a WPATH GEI Mentor so that your hours of individual and group consultation count toward the 10 mentorship hours you need toward your WPATH Certification requirements. Stay tuned for updates about my involvement in the mentorship program and a start date for a low cost WPATH mentor group I will be facilitating online to increase accessibility.
