GenderNexus is bringing gender diverse people together across central Indiana to foster a community that is healthy, informed, and empowered by increasing access to care in all seven dimensions of wellness.
By providing a safe space for community engagement, GenderNexus can help the community navigate and eradicate social and systemic barriers.
We honor the individual journey and expression of each person in the gender galaxy and tailor our services to meet those needs.
GenderNexus provides brief, solutions-focused counseling, concentrating on present circumstances and goals with an emphasis on creating change in the quickest, most effective manner. You are treated as an individual, without judgment, moving you closer to a more fulfilling life.
Stage of Life (SOL) Groups: For those who identify as transgender, nonbinary, genderqueer, gender fluid, and anywhere else in the gender galaxy.
Youth Groups. These groups are a safe place where youth can discuss both internal concerns and the external day-to-day issues.
Adult Groups. These 8-week closed groups provide therapeutic space to delve into the complexities of gender identity and presentation at all stages within the gender journey.
Family Care Groups

While GenderNexus does not offer legal advice, we can help you navigate name and gender marker changes on government documents. For more complex legal issues with housing, employment, or insurance discrimination, we provide referrals to local attorneys who understand our community.
A letter from a mental health provider for medical intervention is often required for hormones or surgery. GenderNexus can complete the required assessment and provide this letter free of charge.
We offer referrals to providers who have experience working with people in the gender diverse community.
Interviewing for a job? Need make-up instruction? Want binding, tucking, or prosthetic selection guidance? These and many other topics will be addressed in monthly workshops to take some of the mystery out of your gender journey.

We advocate for equal rights and equal access for all people. GenderNexus maintains an active voice alongside and on behalf of the community.
