Professional Services

CoTenacious Pro provides a variety of services intended for mental health and allied professionals that help build cultural competence and humility.  We believe in providing support for healers so they can provide their high quality support to others.

Clinical Support

We've said it before and we'll say it again...This job is weird! Our work can be hard and isolating.

Join us as we lean into the safety and support that comes with connecting with other therapists who know what you're going through! We have a special desire to offer a safe place for folks to decolonize therapy, develop and expand anti-racist clinical practices, expand self-disclosure and transparency, unlearn harmful lessons and practices, challenge "traditional graduate school" truths, and BUILD COMMUNITY so we all have support as we support others!

"Pebble" McCleary is available for short-term and long-term consultation relationships that focus on their specialization areas: LGBTQ+, kink/BDSM, nonmonogamy, and systemic trauma (which includes lived experience and professional perspectives)

  • Clinical consultations may include topics such as (but not limited to):

    • Writing gender-affirming surgery letters

    • Supporting a couple’s transition from monogamy to nonmonogamy

    • Supporting exploration of safe kink/BDSM practices

    • Supporting identity exploration

    • Challenging and unlearning internalized oppression


Professional Training

  • Pebble McCleary is available to create customized trainings within their specialization areas to meet your personal, business, and/or clinical needs. This process involves scheduling an initial consultation to discuss goals and expectations, size, length, cost, and scheduling of the training. Throughout the process of creating your customized training, Pebble will also schedule check-ins for continued consultation to ensure that what is being created will meet your needs and expectations.
