Abby Durgan, ASWthey/them/theirs
Staff Somatic Sex Therapist
Abby is passionate about sex positivity, and healing the connection between how we feel in our bodies and how we show up in our relationships. Her previous work explored different facets of this healing, from working with people with eating disorders, to people experiencing gender dysphoria and seeking gender-affirming surgery, to people charged with sex offenses and people who experienced sexual trauma.
Abby uses a trauma-informed lens with each client, and the modalities they use include: motivational interviewing, mindfulness, meditation, somatic experiencing, family systems and dialectical behavioral therapy. That being said, the key to effective therapy is a nonjudgemental, secure relationship between the client and clinician, so that is their primary tool.
Abby uses an abolitionist approach to therapy, which means she views individuals as shaped by the overlapping, violent “isms” of our society: White supremacy, anti-Blackness, capitalism, fatphobia, homophobia, transphobia, and others. They believe that understanding systemic oppression emboldens us to build healing practices on a smaller scale: in our personal lives and communities.
Abby earned their Masters of Social Work at Columbia School of Social Work and her BSEd in Human Development and Psychological Services at Northwestern University.
Abby accepts Anthem Medi-cal, MHN/Healthnet, Out-of-Network, and Self-Pay clients
Sex & Relationship Coach
Jennah is a sex and relationship coach specializing in working with people deconstructing religious trauma around their sexuality and relationships. Jennah grew up in conservative Christian communities and once leaving that lifestyle, realized how important and scarce help in this area there is. While getting certified, Jennah realized that this niche of working with religious deconstruction and helping people find freedom in their sex lives and relationships is where her passion to help people truly lies (and just how necessary it is!). Jennah is excited about getting to help give individuals a safe corner of the world to question, grow, learn, and discover even more about themselves. On the side, Jennah runs a sex positivity account on Instagram called Honest Sexuality where she provides comprehensive, accessible sex education in a fun and approachable way.
Jennah works with self-pay clients only.
Coaching is not covered by insurance plans.
Wayne LeSane, CSRC
Staff Sex & Relationship Coach
1971 Washington D.C.- I was born and raised in a culture of hidden and repressed emotions. Through life’s journeys, travel, and gained experiences, I was able to unlearn and let go of a lot of conditioning from childhood around intimacy, sex and relationships.
I have been consciously non-monogamous for about 25 years, including my current relationship and marriage of 19 years.
I absolutely love talking about sex and relationships, especially dating culture and non-monogamy with anyone who is open to engage and explore.
My strength lies in my ability to help folks see all the options that are truly in front of them and to help make their desires reality by getting as creative as they want to be.
Wayne works with self-pay clients only.

Janet Bayramyan Generales, LCSW

Janet is aware of the complex impact of trauma, no matter how big or small, on an individual and a relationship. Her approach integrates this knowledge into every aspect of your treatment.
As an EMDR certified psychotherapist and supervisor who is also trained in Attachment Focused EMDR, the Havening Techniques, and other trauma modalities, Janet help's clients and therapists understand and process the impact of trauma towards moving through states of protection and connection in their nervous system to establish an embodied sense of safety.
