Jadelynn St Dre (she/her/hers) is a trauma therapist based in Berkeley, California, specializing in intimate partner violence, sexual trauma, sex therapy and work within the LGBTQIA+ communities. St Dre completed her MA at the California Institute of Integral Studies in Counseling Psychology, with an emphasis on Expressive Arts Therapy, and is currently receiving supervision toward AASECT and AAMFT certification. As a queer, biracial, Latinx, cis-femme survivor, she works collaboratively with non-profit organizations and community collectives to spark dialogues which envision a world without sexual assault, seeking to uplift the voices of those often forgotten or silenced within the mainstream movement.
Currently, St Dre works as a community artist and organizer in the Bay Area, creating public direct action, exhibition, trainings and workshops in a variety of settings, in addition to managing a private practice. Her most recent artistic work, Choreographies of Disclosure, was shown in a month-long residency at Pro Arts Gallery with the support of the 2018 East Bay Fund for Artists Award. This exhibition uplifted the voices of LGBTQIA+ survivors of sexual assault via an artistic call-and-response method developed by St Dre, cultivated in collaboration with several Bay Area, multidisciplinary LGBTQIA+ artists. In addition to her artistic and clinical work, St Dre has been a guest lecturer at UC Santa Cruz and UC Berkeley, is adjunct faculty of the EXA program at CIIS, and continues to serve as a member of the Leadership Team of the Monument Quilt (Baltimore).
