An Open Psychotherapy Group for Gender-Affirming Journeys
I am thrilled to share with you a new open psychotherapy group that I am offering for all varieties of transgender and non-binary adults 25+ who are considering or undergoing gender-affirming hormones and surgeries. This is a therapy group which will be relational and nourish the key requirements for a healthy sense of self in community – accurate mirroring, a sense of belonging and twinship, and people you can look to for wisdom along the way. We will also be empathetic witnesses for any traumatic experiences that enter the space in order to fulfill an essential ingredient for liberation from the trauma.
What sets this group apart is a commitment to creating a brave space, where differences and frictions are not only welcomed but embraced as essential elements in our transformative journey towards congruence and liberation. We will honor each member’s complexity and support their unique processes by helping them create and play with their identities and experiences. We will value INconsistency, NON-certainty, DISconnection, NON-compliance, Sustainability, Reciprocity, and Possibilities as much as if not more than their opposites. We will celebrate nourishment in the face of a fucked up society that sees us as a problem, and inspire each other to keep going because existence is activism. This is where you’ll find the center of you.
The number of group members may fluctuate because each of you will find the right rhythm for yourself for when you come and when you don’t. (If you’re late, that’s cool too!) I’ll do my best to balance the attendance at 6-10 members per session so each member gets their individualized needs met in addition to weaving in with the group. Generally what happens is that we have a core group of people who come most of the time, and another group of people who work it into their lives in other ways.
Group will be held on Monday evenings from 5:15 – 6:45pm (organized around my dog’s schedule, of course) beginning July 31st via Telehealth on Zoom (HIPAA-compliant). Sessions are $75. While I don’t direct bill any insurance, I can provide you with a monthly superbill/receipt you can use for claiming out of network benefits. If finances are a primary obstacle for you, please talk to me about sliding scale as a form of radical self-care.
