- Who is this group for? Anyone ages 21 to 29, identifying as trans/nonbinary.
- When will we meet? Wednesdays at 12noon
- Where will we meet? We will meet virtually on a HIPAA-compliant platform. We will provide this information after a screen consultation.
- What happens if I miss a group day? Please notify your group facilitator if you think you will be unable to attend the group. We have a 24 hr cancellation policy for our regular therapy sessions and we ask members to please call, email or text if they feel they can not make a meeting. We will charge for those who do not contact us or now show the day of the session.
- Will this group be a safe space? Yes! We absolutely want this to be a safe space for everyone to connect, build community, and continue a journey of self-discovery and growth. Our group guide strives to always create a sense of safety, non-judgmental, and the ability to hear everyone’s experiences and make space for all topics.
- What’s the difference between a closed group? Versus an open group? A closed group is when members begin at the same time, traveling through their support series together as a cohort. There are no new members added after the 8-week group has begun. An open group is when members can start and stop a group each week. This changes the work in the group, a sense of safety, and the ability to share freely. For this reason, we have created this 8-week group series to be a closed group. We want members to feel comfortable and safe to share in this community.
- Can I be off video during the group? Yes! We want members to have the option to turn off their video and have only audio on days when they feel their gender dysphoria is high or for other protective reasons. We just ask that you briefly communicate the need to your group guide. We hope to encourage you to be on video for some of the 8-week series when you are ready.
- What’s the size of the group? Groups are limited to 8 members. Space is limited. We keep the groups small intentionally. Please contact us if you think you’d like to be a part of this wonderful group.
- If the group is full, what do I do? We have a waitlist for our next 8-week series. We will contact you as soon as we have space in the group. We also offer individual sessions for those who would like to start therapy immediately.
- Why do you need to be in California for virtual sessions? In California, therapists are limited to being licensed within the state of California to be able to see clients here. We are unable at this time to see clients outside of California, only because we are not licensed in other states.
- What happens if I go on vacation outside of California? Can I still join the group? Unfortunately, we would ask that you going us when you return to California. State licensing laws keep us from being able to see a client outside of California, even if they are only on vacation for a few days to weeks.
