About the presenters:

Heather Branham, LCSW (she/her/hers) has been studying gender and sexuality for almost 20 years. In her psychotherapy practice, she specializes in helping queer and trans clients of all ages navigate family relationships and heal from trauma. Her previous clinical work focused on treating perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and early intervention with children (birth to 5) who had experienced trauma. She has also served families as a birth doula, a nanny, and a prenatal/postpartum yoga teacher.

Stephen Wiseman, LCSW (they/them/theirs) is a trans, Appalachian queer social worker committed to undoing oppression in all its forms through advocacy, direct action, education, and good old-fashioned conversation. Stephen's advocacy work has included positions at the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and Equality North Carolina. Stephen has also served NC families as a social worker in the Triangle-area and Asheville.

Heather and Stephen are frequent presenters on topics relevant to the trans community and consult with professionals and organizations seeking to improve their services to this community.
