I stopped with the intake--when they referred to trans people as a fad. This psychotherapy practice was recommended to me by a cis queer couple. The practice bills itself as friendly to queer, LGBT, kink, non-monog/open relationship, "alternative" lifestyle individuals and couples as well as versed in Jungian and process-oriented and other kinds of therapy. Some of their therapists claim to be friendly to and familiar with trans-related issues etc. Based on all that info, I thought it was definitely worth investigating.

In any case, the intake coordinator--also one of the *very* experienced therapists--said something pretty outrageous during intake. I was giving her context for understanding my needs. When I told her I had transitioned genders (i.e. the major transformative changes) 15 years ago, She expressed surprise and said, "Oh wow! You transitioned before it was a fad!"

I will not subject myself to a practice that has an intake coordinator saying this kind of stuff. Especially when they are supposed to be versed in/sensitive to histories of trauma, depression, and what not. Totally unacceptable. If there is someone specific you want to work with at this place, avoid the intake process if possible--just explain you don't want to deal with transphobia in order to take care of yourself.
