Online Parent Groups

For parents/guardians of transgender, non-binary, or other gender-diverse kids of all ages

Virtual parent social support groups run for 6 weeks at a time and are 90 minutes each. They are led by Nick Teich, PhD, LCSW, who transitioned in 2007 and has since worked with thousands of trans/non-binary/gender diverse youth and their families.

What do these groups have to offer me as a parent/guardian?

  • A professionally moderated social support group with like-minded parents going through a similar journey

  • A safe and confidential place to share about your struggles, fears, and triumphs related to your child and family

  • Others who can offer advice, empathy, and knowledge

  • A moderator who has long been on the personal trans journey and has worked with thousands of trans/non-binary/gender diverse youth and their families in the past 13+ years

  • A small group of others whom you can continue to connect with in the future (groups are capped at 15 parents/sets of parents)

  • Lots of answers to your questions and resources to help you along your way!

Groups Moderator: Dr. Nick Teich


Nick Teich, PhD, LCSW is the founder, owner, and director of Fairwinds Consulting and Fairwinds Family Camp for families with trans & non-binary kids, which is opening in 2023. He is a social worker by training and very much enjoys speaking to parents and families who are new to their child's gender journey, wherever it might take them, which is how Fairwinds Consulting for parents came about.

Nick is the founder of Harbor Camps (formerly "Camp Aranu'tiq") for trans & non-binary youth, and spent 13 years as the director and CEO, during which time the camps served thousands of kids. In 2012, he authored Transgender 101: A Simple Guide to a Complex Issue (Columbia University Press).

Nick holds a masters degree in social work from Boston College and a PhD in social policy from Brandeis University, where he did his doctoral dissertation on the effects of anti-trans bullying. Although it's a large part of his work, being trans is just a small part of his identity. He lives in the Boston, Mass. area with his wife, Erika, and their young children, Rebecca and Brooke.
