One Exciting Idea:

Wider Lens Consulting

 Sasha Ayad, Lisa Marchiano, and Stella O'Malley

Here's a little more about our new project:

Wider Lens Consulting was formed by Sasha Ayad, Stella O’Malley, and Lisa Marchiano. These three women are experienced therapists who became concerned early on about the rush to medically transition children and young people. They crossed paths through their shared interest in creating more individualized and responsive treatment approaches for gender nonconforming kids and their families. 

Since around 2017, Lisa, Stella, and Sasha have worked together to pioneer compassionate and gender-expansive practices for working with teens, young adults, and families. They offer a refreshing perspective that is both cutting edge, based on the latest research and developments, and also intuitively resonant for parents, teachers, therapists, and other adults who care about dysphoric youth. Together, they have created a view of gender which sees it through a wider lens, opening the discussion and making it more expansive. They founded a Wider Lens Consulting in 2021 after recognizing the tremendous demand that existed for nuanced, reflective practices around supporting LGBT youth.

We offer programs for Schools, Parents, and Therapists.
