Parent & Family Consulting & Coaching Services
Nick Teich provides short or long-term personal consulting & coaching services for parents and entire families who may have had a child come out as trans or non-binary or are exploring their gender and who need someone to listen, answer questions, provide helpful resources, and give direction on "where to go from here."
Parent & Family
Nick believes that coaching sessions are most successful when there is no fear of asking "dumb questions" or "saying the wrong thing." It's normal and ok to feel overwhelmed, confused, sad, nervous, impatient, or any number of other feelings. The ultimate goal is to support your child and your family.
Parent & family coaching sessions are done virtually on the computer (via Zoom). Please fill out the form on this page.
Costs are $125 per hour-long session. Resources such as more information for family members, therapy referrals, and other items will be provided to you for no additional cost.
Please note that coaching sessions are not therapy and should not be used for anyone in crisis or needing acute care. We will go over these terms and more before the first coaching session.
Nick Teich, PhD, LCSW
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 and two young children.
