New addition to our counseling team!

giroWe are excited to welcome Girolamo (Jerry) Russa as a Life Coach in training. He has been working very hard at Concordia University to complete his Professional and Personal Coach Certification (PPCC). His program is approved by the International Coach Federation (ICF). His type of work requires patience, passion and dedication to helping people find happiness and persevering through life’s challenges.

We are fortunate to have Giro as a kink/alternative lifestyle aware coach since this is still a major obstacle with therapists and counselors today. University programs are still teaching the “old” philosophy of perversions for psychology and medicine. It’s shocking to many students who are currently taking these classes and well versed with the kink/poly/BDSM world. This information is still biased on gender, lack of formal long-term evidence and research, and stigmatizing.

Giro will be offering workshops, group coaching sessions, and one-on-one individual sessions to practice the knowledge and skills he’s gained from his training. You can contact him at giroru@icloud.com or by phone at 514-991-3866. To learn more about Giro, please check out our counseling section.
