Family Therapy

GFP supports the entire family through gender exploration and, if appropriate, transition. Our family therapists can help strengthen family relationships while exploring gender-related or any other relevant challenges for the entire family. Our approach to family therapy and parental coaching is steeped in a deep understanding of research on gender development, as well as a belief in family resilience and connection as core factors for health and well-being. It is based on the Multidimensional Family Approach, nationally recognized as one of the only models to support families through gender exploration (MDFA, Malpas 2011).
