Zo Amaro Jimenez (they/them) is a licensed clinical psychologist and consultant who focuses on trans liberation and gender embodiment in their work. They have worked for 10 years as a consultant and trainer in a variety of settings, mainly universities and nonprofit community mental health agencies. While much of their trainings revolve around best practices in workplace and mental health care, they approach those topics from a framework that decenters the gender binary and emphasizes the autonomy and inherent dignity of all people who struggle within the gender binary.
