HOW CAN I HELP YOU?
ABOUT MICHELE O’MARA
I hold a PhD in Clinical Sexology from the American Academy of Clinical Sexologists, a Masters of Social Work from Indiana University-Purdue University, and I am a Certified Imago Therapist. My dissertation was on the Correlation of Sexual Frequency and Relationship Satisfaction among Lesbians. I am specialized in the care of lesbian couples, especially, but all couples in general. I am also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), and I have been specializing in the care of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender folks since 1994. Many heterosexual couples and individuals will write me asking if I also work with heterosexuals. The answer is YES, I do work with heterosexuals too!
As a Certified Imago therapist, a trained Gottman therapist, and with a PhD in Clinical Sexology, my relationship care is among my greatest passions. Relationship services include: premarital or marriage preparation counseling, couples therapy, affair recovery or other traumatic relationship events in need of repair, discernment counseling to decide whether to stay or leave the relationship and uncoupling counseling to support you in a kind and intentional exit from your relationship.
As a therapist with two decades of experience in gender care, I am available to provide assessment and referral letters for hormone replacement therapy (HRT), vaginoplasty (SRS / GRS), phalloplasty/bottom surgery, and chest surgery or top surgery. In addition to these services, I also offer couples counselling, gender clarification for those experiencing confusion about cross-dressing behaviour, gender identity concerns, and support in coming out or transitioning. Whatever your gender concerns, you are safe here.
Q & A with Dr. Gallagher Deciding on mtf bottom surgery is an overwhelming process for many transgender women. There are so many factors to consider when deciding which surgeon to choose for surgery: location, cost, comfortability, outcomes, aesthetics,...read more

While I am certified and trained to provide traditional psychotherapy, my philosophy is more aligned with the tenants of coaching. In a coaching relationship, I am not required to assess and diagnose, and my goal is to connect and facilitate a meaningful understanding of who you are, and where you want to be in your life. I am grateful when I can walk along side my clients as they move in the direction of their truth. I love to see people (even strangers) experience peace and happiness in life; I’m funny like that.
CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS
One of my favorite things to do is to help people gather and learn. I’m energized and inspired in the company of like minded, happy, curious, people who enjoy learning, laughing, and experiencing new friendships and personal growth. Toward this end, I have created a series of opportunities for this to happen. These are twelve-week classes that meet weekly and vary in focus but all have in common the desire to improve some aspect of your life, with intention, through the shared enthusiasm of new friends and classmates.
