More about Me
When we surrender we find the freedom within
My name is Rina Trevi, formerly known as Ms. Renee Trevi. I’m not a Dominatrix, not a masseuse and not a psychotherapist. A Vulnerability Coach is the best way to describe my profession: my mission is to acquaint you with your own self -- raw and unmasked. I create safe spaces for healing, self-discovery and spiritual explorations.

Here are some other terms that that others have used to describe me that are accurate: tantric bodyworker, rigger, author, BDSM coach, world traveler, skydiver, BASE jumper, freediver, student of ancient traditions and intrepid explorer of consciousness.
Like most people, I grew up conditioned to believe that I have to fight hard to make it, and that fear and greed are our main engines. I used to believe I needed to seek happiness on the far side of the moon instead of within myself. Now I know this isn't so: this life is for freedom. Embracing vulnerability is a key to intimacy and, ultimately, to freedom. Vulnerability is a shedding of the many cumbersome layers of the protective armor and defense mechanisms that we have spent our lives collecting.
I'm currently based in Austin, TX and regularly visit NYC, LA, San Francisco and Miami.
Creating safe spaces for people to fall apart.
It is in the falling apart, the messiness, that you find your way to healing and wholeness. I know this because I've lived it and watched this transformation in countless humans I’ve worked with.
But it wasn’t always this way for me. I grew up in post-Soviet Russia where secrets and silence founded my childhood. I felt completely out of place, a misfit. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t conform to my family culture. And my body let me know it. I felt sick, depressed, and completely alone.
I wasn’t going to live that way, so I jumped. I knew I needed an entirely different kind of existence so just like the movie, The Matrix, I became a ‘Matrix Jumper’.
My first ‘matrix’ after leaving Russia was in the American Dream. I lived in DC, got my MBA, and worked my way into a corporate finance job. But after a while, my body let me know it was time for change again when I would fall asleep in the middle of the day and cry all night.
I knew there were options. I could numb myself into accepting this was my life, like my alcoholic father and countless others, or I could jump again. I jumped.
This time, I went for the unknown. I traveled throughout the US, went to Thailand, then to India, and learned about alternative ways of healing.
I connected to myself. I found true freedom like I never knew existed. I wanted to share it with the world!
And now I do. After many years as a professional dominatrix in NYC and also learning the sacred art of Shibari, I am now immersed in coaching others to transformation and healing through various modalities of vulnerability.
Though my body loudly led the way for me, we can all find our way to healing, wellness, and bliss ❤️🩹😇🧘♀️
My journey has empowered me to proudly step outside norms in order to express my own sexuality and, through my work, assist others in doing so. I felt ready to step up and dive into my biggest dreams and here I am - offering others counseling and journeys into self-discovery and spiritual illumination.
I am also a certified death doula, which helps me to gain a deeper understanding of and respect toward the ultimate journey of surrender - physical death. I have found the contemplation of death and various forms of “Die before your die” experiences to have a profound effect on choices we make while still fully alive, and I continue exploring such experiences.
