Fourth Saturday Program & Support Circle July 24th
The program portion of today’s Circle will be “The role of the therapist in transition.”
Our presenter for the July 24 PFLAG Connects is our own Reid Vanderburgh, talking about the therapist’s role in transition. A retired therapist, Reid worked with over 450 clients, most asking, “How do I want to live my life?” in the context of gender identity. A transman himself, Reid developed a model of identity emergence that he found useful in helping his clients sort through the various options, navigate family and workplace reactions, etc. His clients ranged in age from 4 to 71, transitioning various directions, in various contexts and professions. As Reid puts it, “They had nothing in common beyond not resonating with the gender assigned them at birth.” Come join us as Reid shares his perspective on what to look for in a therapist when gender identity is the primary issue.
A support circle will follow.
Joining a PFLAG Connects Support Circle
Our PFLAG Connects online circles function a little differently than our in-person support circles. Here’s how to join a Circle:

Click on the big REGISTER button at the top right of this page. You’ll be taken to an e-registration form. Please fill it out and submit it at least 1 hour before the start of the Support Circle. If you’re under 18, a parent or guardian must attend with you. Tip: include your pronouns in the Last Name box. Example: Chelsea Circler (them, they)
We’ll send you an email with the meeting join link and optional dial-in instructions. Save this email! It contains your only ticket to the Circle.

Join on-time. Better yet, join early. The Circle Waiting Room opens 10 minutes before the circle starts and closes shortly after starting time. For your security, no late admissions. When the host begins setting up the meeting room, the Waiting Room will open. At the scheduled start time, the host will admit you to the meeting room.
If you have any questions, send us an email at email@example.com.
