Working together will center...

Curiosity

We'll explore your experiences and thoughts through a lens that seeks to understand your many possible truths instead of using judgement and shame.

Pleasure

Your life is intended to experience more than pain, survival, and trauma. We'll use a pleasure-centered approach to identify & prioritize your core needs. 

Teamwork

I take the approach of a collaborative team member while offering education, tools, and space to explore your options that help you discover solutions.

Hey, I'm Rafaella!

I am a queer and trans affirming, non-monogamous and kink aware therapist specializing in relationships, sex, and trauma therapy. My goal is to help reveal your expertise, strengths, and ability to heal by developing a healthier relationship with yourself and others.
