We are happy and excited to offer a new group in Philadelphia that addresses the concerns and needs of an often underserved population. “Just For Us” is a therapy group for partners of transgendered and gendervariant individuals. We aim to create a safe space where clients can find the support, camaraderie, and information to thrive. This group often goes unnoticed with the focus primarily on the trans person.
Here, partners will have the opportunity to carve out an identity of their very own. Partners may be male, female, gender-variant, gay, straight, queer, or bisexual…the only thing they must be is the current partner of a transgender or gender-variant person.
We invite you to spread the word and hang up the flyer (make copies if you need more!) and welcome any questions you may have about referring potential clients to us. We are excited about this group and appreciate your support!
