I am an LGBTQAI sex educator and a psychotherapist, and I am an AASECT certified sex therapist. I was clinically trained at the Smith School for Social Work and the Eastern Group Psychotherapy Society in New York City. I currently reside and practice in the Pioneer Valley, however, I lived in New York City for over a decade and during that time founded the advocacy and education organization, TRANSLATE GENDER, Inc. I utilize a transfeminist therapeutic approach in working with LGBTQ adolescents, individuals, and families. My interests include working with couples, polyamorous relationships, BDSM relationships, as well as working with those in alternative family structures.

My clinical orientation is influenced by both the narrative and the open dialogue traditions, and I have a broad range of expertise having completed clinical trainings in anxiety disorders, depressive and mood disorders, dual diagnosis, sexuality and gender identity concerns, grief and loss, and trauma.

I specialize in concerns related to gender, sexuality and sexual practices. I trained at the Institute for Dialogic Practice, with Mary Olson. Recently published paper, in Women and Therapy Journal, introduces the transfeminist therapeutic approach; Gender Disorder as Gender Oppression: A Transfeminist Approach to Rethinking the Pathologization of Gender Non-Conformity.

Shannon L. Sennott's Groups

Translate Gender Family Group

The Translate Gender Family Group is a place for parents and family members of gender fluid/trans* children to come together and share successes, experiences, and challenges in the struggle to create a gender-affirming environment for their children, both at home and in communities. This group is designed to aid care givers in creating larger networks of supports and resources, and welcomes parents of children ages 3 - 17. This group is an open-ended family therapy group that includes all members of trans* families (caregivers/parents, trans*/gender fluid children, and their siblings).
