2020 has been hard enough.  Finding an affirming, competent therapist shouldn’t be yet another challenge to overcome.

Hi, I’m Sarah Gilbert, founder of Transitions Therapy LLC; a virtual therapy practice serving trans and gender-questioning teens, adults, and the people who love them throughout CT.

  I help motivated, resilient people explore their gender identities and gain confidence in uniquely expressing their true selves so they move from a life of “shoulds” to a life of self love  .

Maybe you’re just starting to allow yourself to question your gender identity, and how or even if you want to express it to the outside world.  Maybe you’ve been crystal clear on your gender identity for years, decades, but life circumstances prevented you from doing anything to express it until now.  Maybe the unrelenting pandemic we’ve been living through has helped you filter out the noise of judgments, limitations, and expectations that have hindered your authentic expression of yourself.  Maybe the unexpected gift of 2020 is that you’ve realized it’s time to stop denying yourself the acceptance of who you really are.

Whatever it is you’re looking for,   I’m here to help you in your process of exploration and change.   Everyone’s exploration of gender identity and expression is unique, and the last thing I’m here to do is tell you how to do this trans thing “the right way”.  This work all happens at a pace and in a way that feels right to you.

In addition to providing therapy for teens and adults who are exploring their gender identity and transition options, I also provide support to spouses/partners, and parents/caretakers of those who identify as transgender.   Being in such roles in a trans person’s life can bring about a mixed bag of emotions, questions, concerns; a real need for a connection with a therapist who will help you unpack it all, with compassion rather than judgment.

 At this time,  Transitions Therapy LLC is a virtual practice; all services are provided via a HIPAA secure video session platform.

We can unlearn long-held paradigms ANY time! Love thisMyyyy HHEEEAAART💛💜💗We love you ACCEPTING GRANDMA! People often assume that “The Older Folks” will never understand nonbinary identity. Many people thank that habits are too ingrained, and that coming out to your grandparents is almost useless: they’ll never understand. But again and again, this is proven false. You can find bigots in every generation and yes, you can find LGBTQ acceptance in every generation. And of course, there are nonbinary grandparents. Love and unconditional embracing has no age. Years don’t make you less accepting. Hate does that. Plain and simple. Thank you grandma! We love you!💛💚💛💚💗🦋💗💜 #transacceptance #lgbtq #nonbinarytrans #family #selfcare #kindness #emotionalhealing #trans #lgbt ... See MoreSee Less

I just love this story SO so much.To be an adult in a child’s life entails having tremendous influence on how they see themselves in the world.Did you know that by the age of 5 kids already have an awareness of conformity? They already know that saying, doing, or wearing certain things can cause them ridicule or rejection. Of COURSE this includes any gender non-comforming presentation.When we, as adults can show the kids in our lives that the FULL expression of their true selves is safe with us, is affirmed, it has a beautiful lasting impact on that child’s life. ...

There is SO so much misunderstanding regarding trans and gender expansive kids. The facts are that pre-pubertal children CANNOT get gender affirming surgeries or cross hormone treatment. They CAN engage in what's called social transition; non-permanent changes such as clothing, hair style, and using a chosen name and pronouns. This is called a gender affirming approach, and research shows that when parents and caregivers use this approach, the long-term mental health outcomes of trans youth are vastly improved. ...
