“Brown paper packages tied up in strings these are a few of my favorite things!”

If only life & emotions were that easy, all tidy in a neat little bow. Instead sometimes life is more like untying a knot and unleashing the contents of Pandora’s Box.

How does kink support your mental wellness?

Daddy Rae, They/Them

Daddy Rae’s (they/them) personal and professional lived experiences as a non-binary/genderqueer person in the lifestyle is one of the most significant motivating factors in their work as a trauma-informed, sex/kink positive and affirming therapist.

Daddy Rae is the owner and founder of GENEX Therapeutic Solutions, LLC, the Midwest’s Gender-Expansive Resource for Therapy, Consulting, Training, and Education. At GENEX, Rae’s areas of expertise and focus are gender, sex, and sexuality, utilizing trauma-informed therapeutic modalities while prioritizing an overarching gender-expansive awareness, respect, and validation. This awareness carries over into their work as a consultant, educator, lecturer, trainer, mentor, and peer. Rae believes the key to a solid, productive, trusting relationship in any setting comes from acknowledging each person as a unique individual who is the expert of their own experiences.

In their free time, Rae prefers long ski runs down a snowy mountain anyday to long walks on a beach…but they will still gladly take the piña colada.
