Our video-based therapy groups are typically diverse in terms of race, gender, jobs, parenting, generation and relationship structures.  What members have in common is a desire to be non judgmental, supportive and to share experiences.   Group is a place to get long-term emotional support as well as problem solve. Members share about the personal impacts of bias including heterosexism, cissexism, racism, and anti-trans politics.  Family members often share about their feelings of shock, fear for their family member, wanting to provide support for their loved one, and feeling disoriented or upset. 

 

Each group starts with a check-in for each member and then we discuss your feelings about topics that have been suggested or come up organically over the course of the group.

Max 9 members.   AGE 24+  

 

Members attend a free, pre-screening appt, to make sure they are a good fit for each other and the balance of the group.


Both groups are led by Lisette Lahana, LCSW, a white/latine cis gender therapist with twenty years serving the diverse gender community.  Lisette has led many gender therapy groups, LGBT groups and groups for partners.  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.
