Licensed by the state of New York, I offer kink, poly, trans and LGBQ affirmative therapeutic counseling for individuals, couples, multiple-partner relationships, and/or poly and leather families. My approach is psychodynamic, collaborative, and person-centered. I work with those who live openly and out, as well as with those who have more conservative and private lifestyles.
People seek therapeutic support for many reasons, including: sexual functioning issues, including difficulty achieving orgasm or erectile unpredictability; difficulty adjusting to current relationship difficulties or past trauma; a deeper understanding of their identities or means of sexual expression; or a better understanding of a partner’s needs. Some come to therapy to discuss issues unrelated to their gender or sexual identities, but feel more comfortable speaking with someone knowledgeable about alternative lifestyles and identities.
I provide a safe, non-judgmental, empowering space in which to explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; identify patterns and potential barriers to progress that connect with current life experiences and/or to the past; recognize and build on personal strengths, resilience, and insight; and improve communication and decision-making skills. We’ll work together to create concrete goals, and you’ll take an active role in achieving them with my support and guidance.
