The journey of gender exploration can sometimes feel very solitary, especially for those who don’t already have a supportive and informed community around them. This group, led by a trans therapist, welcomes you into a safe space with like-minded people where you’ll share your thoughts and experiences and develop tools to help you along your path.
This will be a co-creative space, one we will enter together in a spirit of collaboration to establish group guidelines and norms. We’ll also agree on our discussion topics based on the needs and expectations of the group. Those looking for more support are welcome to join the new cohort that will start in the summer.
This group is inclusive of all stages of gender exploration, sexual orientations, and neurotypes, and is held in a secure virtual space. Sliding scale is available; please contact us to discuss it. Pre-group consultation is required to join and we recommend scheduling it as early as possible.

What do you do when your partner wants consensual non-monogamy (CNM) and you don’t? Or what if you are deeply in love with your partner and want to stay together – and you also want to be with other people? The explosion of interest in polyamory, swinging, open relationships, and other forms of consensual or ethical nonmonogamy over the last 15 years has created a wave of people facing the CNM/mono mismatch where one partner wants monogamy and the other wants CNM. Some couples have been together for years and one has been suppressing the desire for multiple partners, and other relationships have formed more recently and are trying to decide how/if they should move forward. Either way, people who are navigating the CNM/mono mismatch often face similar issues, share common experiences, and benefit from each other’s advice and companionship.
This group is for anyone with relationship issues related to a mismatch in the desire for CNM and their partners. We offer judgement-free support for wherever people fall in the wide spectrum of singular/plural relating.
This group is inclusive of all stages of gender exploration, sexual orientations, and neurotypes, and meets virtually every other week. Sliding scale is available; please contact us to discuss it.
