Be with your fellow gender unicorns!
This professionally-facilitated support group for nonbinary, genderqueer, and otherwise gender-fantastic people will help you get support, belong to community, and otherwise navigate the special sauce that is NB/GQ transition as it unfolds over time.

This supportive therapy group in Portland will be professionally facilitated to promote a sense of group safety and sharing, and we will work together to build the kind of supportive community we are looking for. Being understood by peers can be a crucial support in feeling acknowledged, valued, and understood.
