Also hosting by Video: Experienced Gender Therapists Group & a Drop-In Consult Group
  • Consult on challenging cases with Lisette Lahana, a Senior Gender Specialist and Certified WPATH Provider who has been seeing clients in the transgender community since 1999. 
  • Develop clinical skills and learn how to help clients prepare for medical interventions like surgery and hormones.
  • Discuss interventions to help clients reach goals for gender expression and well-being.
  • 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, sexuality and trauma histories impact clients' gender.
  • Gain access to a private Google Group for gender therapists to ask questions, get resources and build your network nationally.
  • Get support and consultation from your peers in a diverse group of talented clinicians who grow with you over time.
 
​In all groups there is the option to spend the first 25 minutes of our time talking about topics of mutual interest (example list). Cases are presented informally so no major preparation is needed on your part. 
No identifying information will be shared about clients during group to protect client confidentiality.  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 cis, we are carefully aware of your gender privilege and gender experience.  We pay close attention to your work and the feelings you experience in the room, without judgement.  This has been especially important as the therapists in the group are all impacted personally by the changing political landscape.
Video consult groups are a great way to network with therapists from all over the nation (though it is open to international therapists).  During group, we use zoom.us 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 clinicians of color while they cannot afford the full group fee.  Graduate students and interns welcome. You must be actively seeing clients to be in group.  Maximum: 8-9 members. Contact me if you are interested.
Interested in becoming a WPATH Certified Provider?   I am a WPATH Certified Provider and a WPATH GEI Mentor so that your hours of individual and group consultation count toward the 10 mentorship hours you need toward your WPATH Certification requirements.  Stay tuned for updates about my involvement in the mentorship program and a start date for a low cost WPATH mentor group I will be facilitating online to increase accessibility.
