I offer consultation services to colleagues on a range of clinical subjects:
BDSM and Trauma
I have extensive experience working clinically and providing training around navigating the uniqueness of clinical work with individuals who practice BDSM and who have histories of trauma. This consultation involves case exploration, worksheets for identifying your own boundaries and goals, legal and ethical considerations, and identifying opportunities for working with partners and other providers.
Sex therapy and Sexuality
I have extensive experience with sex education and sexual identities, and have offered individual and group consultation and courses related to working with individuals who are exploring sexual identities and practices or who identify in the LGBTQ spectrum or with BDSM, non-monogamy, and alternative communities.
Chronic Mental Illness
I have years of experience working with individuals with chronic, long term struggles in a variety of settings. I believe in assisting individuals of all backgrounds and abilities in achieving their goals, including relationships, employment, family connections, and housing. I have provided consultation and supervision regarding engagement, ongoing support and treatment, and philosophical approaches to accepting and supporting ongoing mental health for all.
I have experience and focused training in working with clients with both identifiable and hidden differences and disabilities. I provide an approach that includes empowerment, self disclosure, and acknowledgment of social and political impact to address environmental challenges and personal identity concerns related to ability and disability. I have offered consultation and training related to disability and working with physical, learning, and cognitive disabilities in a variety of contexts, including managed care and community mental health settings.
If you would like to schedule a consultation, please contact me directly to discuss time line and arrangements.
