Gain access to a private Google Group for gender therapists.Get consultation from peers in a diverse group of talented clinicians who grow with you.
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 continue the work you have been doing to decenter cisgenderism and binary thinking. We work on combatting cissexism, transphobia, homophobia and white supremacy, which has been present since this field's inception. We pay close attention to your work and the feelings you experience in the room, without judgement.
Video-based online consultation groups are also a great way to network with therapists from all over the nation (though open to international therapists).
COST: A recurring monthly payment of $80 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-$65) available for trans, intersex, non binary identified, disabled folks and BIPOC clinicians 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: 9 members. Contact me if interested.
Interested in becoming a WPATH Certified Member? I am a WPATH GEI Certified Member and a WPATH GEI Mentor. Individual meetings and 8 group hours count towards the 10 mentorship hours you need for WPATH Certification. During our work in group we discuss how the case material and topic discussions are in line with the WPATH Core Competencies. Please speak to me for more details.
