Individual Counseling Therapy NYC-Manahattan

LGBTQ New Parents Support Group

Tuesdays (virtually)
8:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

New LGBTQ parents experience all the joys and challenges straight and cis parents experience, plus the added
richness, hardships, complexity, and strengths that come from being a part of the LGBTQ community. Yet, too often the needs of new LGBTQ parents go unrecognized and unsupported.

This group is an opportunity for new LGBTQ parents to come together in all of our diversity of experience and paths to parenthood to get and give support in a warm, non-judgmental, and LGBTQ-affirming environment.

If you…

  • have welcomed a new child through birth, surrogacy, fostering, or adoption,
  • your youngest child is two years of age or younger, and
  • you, as well as your partner(s) (if applicable) are LGBTQ community

this group is for you! LGBTQ people of all identities and intersections are encouraged to join, including trans* people, people of color, and formerly or currently religious people.

Sessions will be held on Google Meet on Tuesdays, 8:00-9:30 pm, for 12 weeks starting October 26th, 2021.


  • New clients will go through an assessment and standard new client documentation via online prior to group participation
  • Strengths-based therapy, Trauma-focused CBT, Narrative therapy.
  • This group will last for 12 weeks
  • $50/session. Out-of-Network benefits apply.
