Hello there! I’m Rinny (she/they). I identify as a Black and Indian queer femme, born and raised in the California Bay Area. My communities have held me and housed me in my darkest times, and because of that, I strongly believe healing lies within community care. I believe there is beauty in showing up especially human — in laughing and crying, in making mistakes and mending, in storytelling and daydreaming. Because of this, I am passionate about working with individuals, couples, and families, particularly those who hold identities within BIPOC, queer, transgender and gender nonconforming communities.

I help both couples and individuals with improving healthy communication, increasing intimacy and emotional safety in their relationships, while supporting the growth of each partner as an individual by exploring narratives that are present in their life and relationships. I draw from Narrative and Experiential Therapies, utilizing values from Multicultural Counseling, Systems-Thinking, Womanist teachings, and Sex Positive perspectives.

My approach is curious, realistic, non-judgmental and humorous. I am here to both support you and challenge you, while providing a safe and comfortable space for you to process past hurts and current dilemmas. It is important for me to witness you in the ways you hope to be seen, therefore I invite you to collaborate with me on creating a healing space that brings you closer to the future you envision for yourself. I look forward to our time together!
