Professional Development

Energetic and interactive workshops that can be tailored to meet the needs of your group or organization at meetings, conferences, and in academic settings. I enjoy working with mental health professionals and exploring how best practices can be weaved into your own clinical style.

Popular workshops include:

  • Sex-positive therapy for non-sex therapists

  • Write to heal: Integrating journaling into treatment

  • Suicide prevention for LGBTQIA+ clients

Speaking Engagements &Media

In conversations around sex, sexuality, relationships, mental wellness, and all that lie in between, Rafaella creates a space for reflection, insight, humor, and a clear message that will help your community. Her words have been featured in Broadly, Harper's Bazaar, Glamour Magazine, HuffPost, Playboy Magazine, Teen Vogue, Vibe Magazine, and others and has contributed in spaces from podcasts to retreats. So be it a quote for publishing or a live exchange with an audience, Rafaella is always eager to share with those who are ready for it!
