What We Do
Navigation for the Journey
Transitioning is a family journey. No one does it alone. We can help you understand what to expect and guide you through challenges.
Grief, loneliness, and fear are normal feelings along this journey. We can help you process and release the negative feelings to open space for positive experiences.
Education System Guidance
Navigating educational and social environments at school plays a huge role in reaching goals. We can show you how to gain access to appropriate services and facilities in these arenas.
Medical System Guidance
Endocrinologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, pediatricians, and other medical professionals play significant roles in treatment. We can show you how to get your transgender family member’s needs met.
Legal System Guidance
Legally changing names and changing gender on other legal documents requires work and diligence. We can show you the quickest, most effective routes for getting it done.
