About

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 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 the Narrative and Open Dialogue traditions. I am currently supervising clinical interns and associates working on a sliding scale who I can help match clients with if my practice becomes full. Interns and associates profiles can be found at thecenterforpsychotherapyandsocialjustice.com & translategender.org.
I specialize in concerns related to gender, sexuality and sexual practices, disability and sexuality, HAES (health at every size) and sexuality, ENM, polyamory and BDSM/Kink. I offer clinical supervision both remotely and in person. Most recent published book: Sex Therapy with Erotically Marginalized Clients: Nine Principles of Clinical Support

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).
