Get community support from folks who understand your experience
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.
Nonbinary and genderqueer people have special needs that often go unaddressed in counseling, and being a member of a group can offer belonging, reflection, support, and encouragement.
This professionally facilitated group will foster an environment of safety and sharing as we create a supportive community together. Being understood by peers can be a crucial support in feeling acknowledged, valued, and understood.
Discover, craft, and integrate your nonbinary, genderqueer, or other fantastic gender non-conforming identity with us! This group is about being uniquely who we are, together.
