On Intimacy: A Therapy Group for Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Women
November 19 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
In a city as vibrant and kinetic as New York and at a time when technology puts interaction at our fingertips, it can feel challenging as ever to find authentic and fulfilling connections. Group therapy is a potent and transformative process for cultivating a stronger and more honest relationship with yourself and others.
Led by skilled, queer-identified clinicians, we welcome you to join our safe, and confidential space to explore a variety of issues both general and specific to the LBTQ+ community. The central focus of the group is how do we relate more intimately?
Discussion might include navigating the blurry boundaries of friendship and romance, knowing when to hit the gas or the brakes in a new relationship, sex and all its complications, managing evolving relationships with your family of origin or the family you’ve built, and reflecting on the intersection of sexual orientation with all the other aspects of your identity.
We welcome anyone who identifies as a lesbian, bi or queer woman. This includes trans and cisgender women as well as other gender identities and expressions. Reflecting the diversity of our community we encourage participation from adults of all ages, races, ethnicities and ability statuses.
