Watch and listen to Dr. Abigail Weissman speak about how to support LGBTQIQA - identified people and those who love them.
You know you are transgender, intersex and/or lesbian, bisexual, gay, pansexual, and/or queer. Whether you are a-ok with your identity or feel troubled by it, you want to talk to someone who knows about these identities and knows that you are more than your sexual orientation(s) and/ or gender identity(ies).
Sometimes, you feel so alone. You have friends but none of them seem to know that you are in emotional pain. You feel lost. Maybe you feel sad, anxious, and angry and you just want to feel better but you don’t know how. At times, you get up enough courage to tell your friends about what’s really going on for you, and they don’t understand why you are so upset.
Feeling different, isolated, scared, and alone can be devastating when you want more than anything to be understood and loved and respected for who you are, not for what people expect you to be.
You want to feel heard.
You want a psychologist who knows that race, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, relationship configuration, and ability(ies) influence your life, and will talk with you about these issues even if they are hard to talk about.
Working with Dr. Abi Weissman means having a space to explore all your feelings. We will help create an environment for you to learn about yourself and work towards a happier and more authentic sense of who YOU are and what YOU want in your life.

Clinicians and Administrators,
Waves offers services for you too!
It's not easy being a clinician. Sometimes, mental health counselors need support too! We, at Waves, have much experience in working with other providers. We can be those other providers helping coordinate care for our joint clients. And, we can also support therapists through individual or group therapy.
We have a support group for Mental Health Counselors with ADHD. We are here for you when you struggle with prioritizing your caseload or getting that paperwork done! It can seem impossible to manage it all and still have time to get to the gym or see your family. We want to help end the shame around being a clinician with executive functioning challenges.
We offer Consultation services, where we help you deepen your clinical knowledge in regards to a particular issue, such as transgender mental health, or as related to a particular client where you have noticed that you feel stuck.
Clinicians at Waves also provide Trainings for you and your staff. Up above in that picture there, is our Founder, Dr. Abi Weissman, presenting on a conference panel on how to find Trans Affirming mental health care. We can design a personalized training for your clinical or administrative staff. We help executive and administrative teams create LGBT-friendly workplaces too!
