Jennifer offers a couple of different session types depending on what you’re looking for. Session types include individual sessions for general and LGBT+ related issues, as well as family sessions, consulting/information sessions, and support sessions for client with loved ones in the LGBT+ community.
Individual Sessions (general)
Individual sessions are general sessions, typically 60 minutes long, where we tackle a number of different issues and concerns based on your needs. Individual sessions tend to occur regularly, whether that’s weekly, biweekly, monthly, or even less often, depending on what your needs are.
These sessions can be used to tackle a range of different concerns, including coming out, gender identity issues, sexual identity issues, general life concerns, symptoms of depression and anxiety, and more.
These sessions are designed for individuals who are looking at transitioning and have questions about how to do so. Transitioning looks different for everyone but it can seem like a scary and daunting task to move forward. I am here to help! If you want more information about how to transition, but don’t feel that you need the therapy sessions to go along with it, this may be for you!
You can choose from two time options – either 30 or 60 minutes – to get additional information about what is required to make your transition. You’ll have the chance to get more information about getting on hormone therapy, surgery options, and any other questions you may have. I am here to help you clarify your transition process and help move you forward. Please note, however, that I cannot actually prescribe hormones for you or refer for surgery – these sessions are for information-gathering and planning only.
These sessions are support sessions for friends and family of LGBT+ individuals who want to learn more about how they can support their loved ones. These sessions can be ongoing or just a single session to make sure you’re on the right track!
Support for parents can be hard to find and these are the types of sessions that may be helpful. If your child doesn’t want to attend therapy sessions, these types of sessions may help you better help them. Combined with intermittent family sessions, these can be extremely effective for helping to strengthen you relationship with your child or friend and make them feel loved and supported.
At times it can be necessary to have sessions with multiple family members. These sometimes occur on a regular basis, with the family unit as the main client, and no other sessions occurring outside of that. Other times, family sessions are one-offs when an individual has been coming to therapy and needs to have a session or two with their entire family.
These sessions focus on how the family unit can function more effectively, and how they can support the LGBTQ+ family member and one another. Due to the number of people, family sessions are 75 minutes minimum, rather than 60 minutes.
