OUR TEAM

The team at Asyluma is composed of proud members of the LGBTQIA+ community & allies and are well versed in open relationships or alternative sexual preferences.  Our skills in addressing the adverse experiences these communities face come from a combination of lived/ professional experience and education.  We have a passion for and specialize in developmental/ancestral trauma that has affected historically marginalized people including BIPOC populations and the LGBTQIA+ communities.  Our advisors identify with the neurodivergent spectrum, as well as the recovery community, and can work with people who are facing any type of attention deficit or identify as on the spectrum of neurodivergency. Our advisors have extensive experience working with clients along the entire socioeconomic spectrum, from correctional facilities, mental health hospitals, upscale rehab center, to corporate leadership.  Our lived/professional experience and education have taught our advisors to be versatile and effective in optimizing the well-being of all populations.

“All sorts of things in this world behave like mirrors.”
