Spouses' of Transgender Mates

While your mate is going through all the thousands of things involved in transitioning, or having transitioned, you also have your own transition and myriad of things to figure out. A client with a coming out as trans mate requested this gathering of other spouses in Portland, Oregon. I am not trans or a spouse of trans, but am a well trained relationship specialist and seek to be a catalyst for good in the LGBTQi? community. Please contact for prescreening to learn more about Spouses' Group. This is not a couples' group. By donation. Great camaraderie for Spouses!
