Is your partner considering gender transition, in that process, or questioning their gender? Having a partner transition can be isolating and confusing. It can also be amazing and transformative! Over the years working with folks embarking on gender transition, it’s been clear to me how important support for partners can be to trans and non-binary folks themselves and to the success of their relationship(s).
Connecting with other partners who are also going through a similar experience, with the guidance of a trans-affirming gender therapist (that's me!), can offer much needed space for processing the experience and increasing knowledge of gender, sexuality, and transition. It also lightens the emotional load for the transitioning individual who might be feeling a lot of pressure to explain things they aren't super sure about themselves.
I’ve led multiple partner groups in the past and found them to be such a rich experience for everyone involved. This one will be a little different because the group will meet entirely online, so you can join from anywhere in the world. We'll meet for 6 weeks using Zoom (a secure web-based platform you can access on your laptop or phone). The group will meet on Wednesdays, 4:30-5:15PM, from July 24th-August 28th, and the cost is sliding scale $25-$40 per group. Scroll down to sign up or email me if you have questions about whether or not this group is right for you. Click here for the Facebook event for this group.
Note: Because trans and non-binary people don’t only partner with cisgender (non-trans) people, this group is open to people of all genders, including those who identify as transgender or non-binary themselves.
