Small 1 Hour Consult Meetings

For Therapists Working with Transgender, Intersex, Non Binary, Gender Expansive & Questioning Clients and LGBTQIA

Image by Claudio Schwarz

  • Consult on challenging cases with Lisette Lahana, a Senior Gender Therapist and WPATH GEI SOC7 Certified Member and WPATH Mentor who has been seeing clients in the queer and transgender community since 1999. 
  • Develop clinical skills and prepare clients for medical interventions like surgery and hormones.
  • Help family, partners and the workplace move through the process of gender changes.
  • Explore intersectionality including how race, class, abilities, immigration status, family dynamics, mental health, neurotype, sexuality and trauma influence clients' gender.
  • 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.

We come together in a small group with three therapists and one consultant in a 55 minute time slots. You have the option to choose a twice monthly or monthly group time.  The focus will be on gender-related cases across the lifespan.  The group can also be open for discussion of your generalist work which may include clients of all genders and sexualities struggling with anxiety, mood and trauma.  Please note, groups will not start without having 3 signed up.  However, if two colleagues in a group would like to split an hour ($100 each) I am willing to do that while we wait for a third group member.

 

If you and colleagues want to meet by phone or in person in the East Bay, outdoors, let me know. Sign up on this group sheet which lists possible times.

1 OPEN GROUP for BIPOC Clinicians and 1 for BIPOC trans, enby, intersex and asexual therapists

1 OPEN GROUP for Intersex, Non Binary gender therapists

1 OPEN GROUP for child/teen focused work

1 OPEN GROUP for neurodivergent therapists (whatever way you define that)

Feel free to pass this info on to colleagues with whom you would like to share an hour.  You must be actively be doing clinical work. You can also indicate if you are trans, intersex, enby, neurodivergent or BIPOC yourself. In this way therapists with the same needs or identities will sign up with you. Typically if you are in or have been in one of my groups in the past, or have consulted with me individually, you will not need to take part in a pre-screening. If I have never met you, please book a free,10-15 minute meeting by video/phone to discuss whether a small group will be a good fit.  You can email me-therapy a t lisettelahana.com
