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, questioning (including those re-transitioning) and intersex-identified adults. 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 experiences. Group is a place to get emotional support, help with gender dysphoria and work on coming out to self or others. One goal of group is build-up your sense of gender euphoria and live more authentically. Group has also helped members combat the sense of isolation that has come with the pandemic. Members also share about the personal impacts of transphobia, racism, and politics. Max 9 members. AGE 24+ Members are pre-screened to make sure they are a good fit for each other and the balance of the group.
Led by Lisette Lahana, LCSW, a white/latine cis gender therapist with twenty years serving the diverse gender community. In addition to gender therapy 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.
Must be a resident of California and have access to a local therapist, if needed, over the course of the group. Group members must be comfortable using tech for video meetings, have high speed internet and a private place to meet. A credit or debit card will be billed twice a month for the group meetings whether or not you attended every monthly meeting. You may stop attending at any time. A free, brief meeting with the facilitator (by video) is required prior to you being selected for the group program. This meeting helps ensure group is a good fit.
