After a couple of months of planning, the trans* support group is scheduled to start in a little over 2 weeks! Our first meeting will be held Tuesday, August 18th. Please see the info below for more information and contact me directly if you want to join. I'm looking forward to meeting you!
This group is for transgender, gender nonconforming, or genderqueer individuals (or anyone else under the umbrella). The aim is to provide a safe space where members have the opportunity to share their experiences and concerns with one another in a confidential setting. Examples of discussion topics include exploring "coming out" challenges and inquiries related to the process of transitioning, examining experiences of transphobia, identifying strategies for maintaining safety, and developing an identity-affirming support system. Individuals at any stage in their transition are welcome to join.
Meetings will be held in my office at 601 W 18th St, Austin, TX 78701 and will take place on Tuesday nights from 7:15 - 8:45 pm beginning on August 18th. An initial 15-20 minute phone consultation and interview is required if you are interested in joining the group. Feel free to contact me by phone or email to make an appointment for the consultation.
The cost for each group session is $40.
