WPATH Mentor Lisette Lahana, MSW, LCSW

I have over twenty years of experience as a gender therapist, and have been a WPATH member since 2002.  I would be honored to work with you as your WPATH Mentor. Working with me, you'll get support for your clinical work for clients of all ages.  In addition to being a mentor, I continue to work with my own transgender, non binary and gender diverse clients as an individual and group therapist. 

As your WPATH mentor we discuss cases within the context of the WPATH core competencies. Mentorship meetings (25 or 50 mins) can be individual, in triads or group.  You may book a free, brief meeting with me to discuss certification.
