Facilitator: Gabriella Luther (she/her), PhD in progress

I was driven to work as a therapist because I wanted to provide a healing space for people who hold marginalized identities. As a bisexual and mixed-race woman, I know how living at the intersections of stigmatization can make navigating systems of power and privilege all the more traumatic and isolating. I also know that with diverse experiences comes incredible strength, flexibility, and community. My hope is that this group can help you reconnect to yourself and others, and through that connection, you can heal old wounds and better access your strengths.
I am currently an advanced counseling psychology doctoral student at the University of Oregon. I also hold a BA in Psychology from Whitman College. I have training in both group and individual therapy settings. In particular, my training and experience has focused on working with young adults and individuals who identify as Latinx, LGBTQ, and multicultural.

I identify as Transgender woman. I want to share the unique happiness that is living our true selves and I want to help other trans women at all stages in their journeys, to find their own peace and personal acceptance through engagement and sharing in a safe group environment. Additionally, I see it as vital to our individual success to have a connection with others who encounter similar hardships that we face in a world that is just beginning to accept trans-identities.
I have been a member of several trans support groups, and am excited to help facilitate this group. I have facilitated groups of nonprofit boards and municipal commissions. I was honored to serve as the chair of the City of Salem Human Rights Commission from 2018 to 2019 and to have started that commissions LGBTQIA+ Rights task force.
