In addition to direct clinical support, I provide a number of educational trainings, presentations, speaking engagements, and other professional services.

As the first Counseling Program Manager at Gender Health Center, I spent several years with the privilege of supporting and training between 20-30  clinical interns at any given time, as well as speaking and providing trainings in the Sacramento (and wider!) community on a variety of specialty content areas.  I am always more than happy to take the opportunity to offer these things in new contexts! Among the training topics I regularly cover are:

Transgender and gender non-conforming

  • introduction/basics
  • increasing depth of knowledge
  • clinical work with trans and GNC folx (available across the age span, youth-specific, and adult-specific)
  • rights of (and responsibilities to!)  transgender and GNC folx
  • and so many more! If you're looking for a speaker or trainer, and have something in mind that isn't explicitly mentioned, just get in contact with me and we can talk about whether I might have what you're looking for.

 

Narrative Therapy

  • Introduction to (available for clinicians and non-clinicians)
  • Queer Informed Narrative Therapy (also available for clinicians and non-clinicians)
  • Narrative letter writing
  • Using narrative artifacts in treatment (and out)

 

Miscellaneous

  • Self harm (available for about any context; clinical, school-based, or otherwise)
  • Language Matters - the impact of language on the mind and why it makes a difference (available as a general as well as a clinician-focused presentation)
  • Sex positivity
  • Consensual non-monogamy
  • BDSM (variety of trainings available on more specific areas, please feel free to get in touch for more information)

I am also available for clinical case consultation, as well as theoretical consultation from a Queer Informed Narrative Therapy lens.
