Online Gender Therapy Group Program
For Trans, Intersex, Non Binary and Gender Expansive Adults
Ongoing Meeting Time:
Every Other Thursday
This online therapy group is designed for trans masculine, trans feminine, non binary or intersex adults age 24 and up. This ongoing group is diverse in terms of race, gender, generation and how long people have been making changes to gender. What members have in common is a desire to be non judgmental, supportive and to share commonalities. During this COVID19 crisis, many in group are feeling a sense of isolation. Others are feeling exhausted by their social reform efforts and the news. All are feeling pain related to police brutality, racism and transphobia. Group is also a place to get dedicated support around gender dysphoria and coming out. The goal of group is for you to feel well-supported and to build your sense of gender euphoria. Max 9 members. Members will be chosen specifically to be a good fit for each other.
Led by Lisette Lahana, LCSW, a white/latinx cis gender therapist with twenty years serving the diverse gender community. In addition to a long career as a gender therapist, Lisette has done general mental health work, helping people with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and trauma. Lisette can offer information, during group, about medical interventions, such as hormones and surgeries.
