  • Consult on challenging cases with Lisette Lahana, a Senior Gender Specialist and Certified WPATH Member and WPATH Mentor who has been seeing clients in the transgender community since 1999. 
  • Further develop clinical skills as well as stay updated on changes to medical procedures available to clients.
  • Gain group consultation from peers who are a diverse group of experienced gender specialists who grow with you over time.
  • Get feedback on treatment plans and interventions to help complex clients reach goals for gender expression and well-being.
  • Explore intersectionality including race, class, abilities, immigration status, family dynamics, mental health, neurotype, sexuality and trauma histories impact clients' gender and countertransference.
  • 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 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).  During group, we use zoom video, 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 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: 8 members.Contact me if you are interested.
Interested in becoming a WPATH Certified Member?   I am a WPATH GEI SOC7 Certified Member and a WPATH GEI Mentor so that your hours of individual and 8 or 10 group hours count toward the 10 mentorship hours you need toward your 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 do speak to me for more details.
