Carol Montgomery Brosnac, MA, LMFT, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Fresno
I'm a Gender Specializing Psychotherapist with extensive experience & training in working with adolescents, young adults, adults and the elderly. I offer therapeutic and supportive groups at various times of the year. Areas of expertise include: *Transgender Transition * Coming Out * Depression * Anxiety & Stress Management * Grief/Loss * Ostracism * Work Place Issues & Transitioning in the Workplace * Coping Skills * Mood Swings * Adjusting to New Identity * Trans-Advocacy * Psychoeducation * Family Stress & Coping *
I'm highly trained, educated, and culturally competent. I'm specialized in working with the trans community. As a member of WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health), I follow the Standards of Care to ensure the safety of my clients, but I do not play the role of "gatekeeper".
There are currently no Certified Gender Therapists. I'm currently working with WPATH to become one of the first to become certified. I started in Chicago, November 2015 and hope to finish this year. At that time, I'll change my title from Gender Specializing Therapist to Certified Gender Therapist.
