01 Our Values

Tender

We’re here because we’ve been there, so we can’t help but to be wholeheartedly invested in your journey. We want to provide you the warmth, validation and affirmation that can feel so rare in adulthood. Working with us will challenge you, but it will also feel like coming home.

Liberating

We’re fired up about your freedom and fight for it alongside you. Always intersectional, pleasure-positive, and identity-celebrating, we have a low tolerance for boxes, assumptions, and systems that stifle your creative healing. We are your unashamed and unapologetic accomplices in doing life-changing, culture-shifting work.

Community Cultivated

We’re obsessed with staying up-to-date on affirming, anti-oppressive language and concepts, and think learning directly from queer Black folks, Indigenous folks, and community leaders of color is just as important as gathering data from research. We believe in the transformative power of accurate information about sex, gender and relationships.

02 Our Team

We are pleasure activists, disruptors, innovators, and creatives. While we are technically a business, we operate more as a movement. Meet our team of therapists, coaches, and educators.

(She/Her)

Staff Therapist, CPO

Kamil is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist whose collaborative approach to wellness allows her to work with clients to cultivate a relationship where their unique needs can be seen and supported. As a Black bisexual woman, Kamil prioritizes integrating identity into the therapeutic process. She has a particular passion for working with Black women who may find themselves struggling to feel heard, represented, and navigate intimacy. Kamil believes that therapy is a social justice matter, therapy is political, and her work reflects that.

In your work with Kamil, together you will investigate how to expand upon your network and community, and look at what connections are most meaningful to you. With sex and pleasure positivity and social consciousness, your work will be centered on empowerment, finding ways to get your needs met, and making space for joy and pleasure.

Kamil is passionate about providing a non-judgmental space to support growth and resilience and work to highlight and expand upon existing strengths. Kamil values showing up authentically with clients, believing that authenticity is foundational in creating a safe therapeutic relationship. With compassion and vulnerability, she integrates the mind, body, and community to cultivate a holistic approach to mental health. Looking for support is courageous, and Kamil is excited to sit with you on your journey.

“Queer not as being about who you are having sex with, but queer as being about the self that is at odds with everything around it and has to invent and create and find a place to speak and to thrive and to live.”

03 Our Offerings

Individual Therapy & Coaching

Work one-on-one with a provider to expand your self-awareness, heal from previous trauma, and develop strategies for thriving. Through a non-judgmental, intersectional lens, our providers will work with you on concerns and resiliencies related to your identities, mental health, relationships, career and beyond.

Relationship Therapy & Coaching

Couples and triadic+ relationships come to TEG both to move through relationship crises and for general relationship maintenance. We work with relationships curious about non-monogamy, working through infidelity, exploring new identities, coming to terms with loss or transition, family-planning, and expanding their sex lives. We approach relationship therapy through a kink, BDSM, non-monogamy, and queer-affirming lens.
