Alyson Walker, Argenta Counseling
Name of Primary Practitioner:
Alyson Walker
Long Business Description:
Our current struggles & past traumas can reach levels that feel too overwhelming to face alone. You don’t have to. I work with individuals and couples (ages 10 & up) as they process life’s challenges, including: anxiety & depression, relational difficulties or endings, spiritual struggles, abuse & trauma recovery, and sexuality issues. I welcome clients of all sexual orientations, gender identities, levels of romantic/sexual interest, and relational dynamics as well as ethnicities & spiritual beliefs in the fullness of who they are.
I utilize an experiential and attachment-based perspective to partner with my clients. Our time together offers a non-judgmental space for you to face and process life’s unexpected events. I am also certified in EMDR, a therapy used to reprocess traumatic memories so they no longer hold the same emotional power over our present.
Starting therapy can feel overwhelming, especially now. I am excited for you to honor yourself by taking the step to schedule our first conversation by either calling my office or visiting the website to make an appointment. Please email me with any questions! *Pronouns: she/her*

Amanda Auchenpaugh
Long Business Description:
I am most passionate about sex education and sexual freedom. I work with clients with a variety of needs, though I especially love to help clients work through sexual shame and repression in order to lead happier, more fulfilling lives. I view my job as the catalyst that helps my clients discover and grow the strength and potential they already possess. I want my clients to leave my practice feeling empowered with an increased sense of identity, self-esteem, and sense of peace.
I take a humanist and feminist approach to my practice. For me this means that all of us are intrinsically good and capable of growth and change, and that we all deserve equal rights. I am body-positive and LGBTQ+, polyamory, and kink friendly. I love expressive arts and often incorporate them into my practice.
It takes strength and bravery to decide to look for a therapist, and I applaud you for starting that journey already.

Long Business Description:

I’m a Limited Permit therapist with Steuben County Community Services. My specialty is in the intersection of LGBTQIA+, Polyamory, and/or Kink’s with counseling. I’m trained in Person Centered Therapy and practice using a mix of different counseling styles based on what works best for my clients.

In my undergraduate I received a B.A. in Sexuality Studies with a focus on Adolescent Sexuality and Sexual Education from The Ohio State University. While completing my Master’s at Alfred University I taught a series of extracurricular pleasure positive inclusive sex education sessions.  After completing that program I attended the London School of Economics and Political Science where I studied Sexuality where I focused on Kink and wrote my dissertation about the London Rope Community.

As an individual I’ve been involved in various kink communities since around 2015, as such I’m not only kink aware but kink friendly and knowledgeable. If I don’t know your kink, I’m excited to do the research on my own to learn more and make sure you feel comfortable in session.

To schedule with me call the Corning office (number listed below, without extension). You may have to have an intake session with another clinician but you can request me as your counselor. If you are not a resident of Steuben County you may be able to get an exception to use our services. If this is not possible please feel free to email me and I’ll see how I can help.

Name of Primary Practitioner:
Gary L Hirshberg
Long Business Description:

My training as a social worker has given me the understanding of how both childhood and current life circumstances impact people. I work to assist you in understanding how to deal with your problems. My goal is never to provide answers for people, but to help people to understand themselves so that they can function and operate independently of their conflicts and problems.

I have extensive experience working with gay men, women, male survivors of childhood sexual abuse, couples, artists, and international clients. Bringing a sense of discovery and openness to seeing who a person is beneath the surface has imbued my career with clients who for a variety of reasons feel a sense of otherness or differentness that has greatly impacted their lives and that they wish to understand and explore.

My intention as a therapist is that together we can understand the challenges you bring in such areas as addictions, depression, anxiety, relationships, intimacy or sexuality and then look at how these issues stem from the underlying conflicts you face.

Name of Primary Practitioner:
Arianne Groth
Long Business Description:

Arianne (she/her/hers) works with adults interested in improving some aspect of their life. For individuals, this can involve ameliorating the effects of trauma, adapting to transitions such as career change or parenthood, or working with stress, anxiety or depression. For couples, triads, or other relationships, Arianne helps all members find clarity in their communication so that they can have the relationship they want.

How do you craft the story of your life?

We all have stories or patterns that we learned either as children, or developed as we grew up. What stories support your vision?

(“I have a fulfilling relationship,”” I am successful in my career,”” I am a good parent.”)

What other stories might hinder you?

(“I will never be enough,”” it is my fault.”)

Sometimes we may not even hear the stories we tell ourselves, but only feel that something is holding us back. Uncovering that, and crafting the right stories, is key to achieving your goals. We start by finding where contentment or joy may lie for you, strive to understand any obstacles, and discover your strengths to step past them.

Finally, because past experiences feed into our social interactions, the inclusion of current trauma science can deepen our work together. I am trained in the Trauma Resiliency Model (CRM and TRM1) and practice mindfulness-based EMDR.

What stands between you and the life you want to live?

Inclusive Insight Psychotherapy & Consulting Group
Long Business Description:

As a gay cis male within the LGBTQ+ community I have a first hand understanding of the unique concerns and issues which arise for individuals, and couples, in the community. Topics and issues range widely and like our community, each individual is unique. Whether it be anxiety and depression or those compounded by other issues such as non-traditional relationships, lifestyle, HIV/AIDS, serodiscordant relationships, trauma, family, kink, or sex work, you have found a friendly and safe space to talk. People are unique, as such, solutions need to be too. I understand people enjoy different kinks and lifestyles, but you don’t need to navigate your concerns alone.

I am here for the benefit of the client. Together, we will find ways to bring the best version of themself to full realization. We work towards goals set together customized to client’s specific case. Specialties include working with acceptance therapy, reframing, CBT while remaining solutions-focused.

As a former New Yorker, I can be pretty direct. As a person in a second career, I understand the fear of stepping into the unknown. As a human being I relate to people having difficulties in finding the willingness to continue moving forward. Together we can work towards building the best version of you.

Jenn Brandel, LICSW
Business Name:
Name of Primary Practitioner:
Jenn Brandel, LICSW
Long Business Description:

For more than 20 years, I have provided therapy to individuals, couples and groups, as well as offering training, consultation and clinical supervision to community organizations. My work centers around bridging transitions, fostering personal growth and developing compassionate responses and strategies to address life’s challenges. In addition to providing support and encouragement, I will challenge you to think critically about the choices you are making and to work toward overcoming the obstacles that may be keeping you from achieving your goals.

Whether you’re trying to learn something new, working on making a transition, or building your support network, you have a lot of choice about how and with whom you work on achieving your goals. There are therapists and other service providers to appeal to everyone’s personal style. Taking the time to find a professional who is not only credentialed, but who has an approach or philosophy that resonates with you is an important first step.

My approach to everything that I do is to be as real as I can be. Whether I’m working with an individual in a therapy session, presenting to a large audience or collaborating on a community project, I’ve never been someone who is good at faking it. What you see is what you get. I hold myself to the same standards to which I hold my clients—authenticity and honesty are essential. I provide my clients with an accurate reflection of what I see and a professional assessment of how they might do things differently. I will challenge you to think critically about the choices you make and the impact those choices are having on your life.

I rely heavily on resources that foster creativity and humor. I don’t rely on gimmicks or hidden agendas—if I’ve got information or tools that will help you, I will share them with you and encourage you to make them your own.

As a therapist, I work hard to be flexible and responsive to the needs of my clients. There may be times when you feel you need more encouragement and support and less constructive feedback. Other times you may find that confronting an issue head-on feels more productive. I will encourage both of us to be patient with the process and to pay close attention to progress so that we can make adjustments throughout our work together.

My areas of expertise include: mindfulness and meditation; strategies for coping with depression and anxiety; issues around sexuality, sexual functioning and relationships; sexual and gender identity; social skills; trauma; grief; substance use; attention training and living with uncertainty and change.

To find out more about me, check out my website at www.jennbrandel.com, or call me to set up an initial consultation to see if we may be able to work together effectively.

Jonathan Boland, LCSW, BCD, MPH, USN-Vet
Name of Primary Practitioner:
Jonathan Boland
Long Business Description:

I am a psychotherapist, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, in private practice as a mental health provider. As a member of this community, I know how important it can be to find someone who understands sexual diversity when you are looking for a therapist. All of my services are conducted online through a video platform, so I can provide therapy to anyone in the State of California.

My job is to have hope for people, and I have a passion for assisting others reach their fullest potential in life. I believe all human beings hold inherent worth and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, no matter who you are, where you’ve been, and what you’ve done. You have value, and you matter.

Whatever you’re going through, I am here to support you, without judgment or bias. My approach to therapy is down-to-earth, meeting people where they are through conversation. I view all of my work through a social justice lens. Quality therapy requires full consciousness of the inter-sectional identities and complex stressors that affect our lives.

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I am a well-trained and experienced mental health provider. I also have a diverse set of work experiences that have shaped how I approach psychotherapy. I am both a Navy Veteran and a former Peace Corps Volunteer, but I spent the early years of my career as a community organizer in Los Angeles.

I have worked with many different populations in various locations, from New York City to Botswana, and I have a total of 4 years’ experience living and working abroad. While studying mental health and therapy at Columbia University in New York City, I had multiple opportunities that allowed me to learn from the best in the field.

My clinical foundation was built on working with adult survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse. I also volunteered my time on a national LGBT youth suicide hotline. After New York, I joined the military to serve as a Naval Officer. I worked as an active duty mental health provider at 5 different duty stations, including two tours as the Director of Mental Health Departments on military installations. During those years, I treated nearly every mental health condition but maintained a specialty in treating issues related to trauma and/or sexuality. Today, I work with a variety of populations, including Veterans, refugees, and sex offenders.

I am a proud Californian. San Diego is home, but I was born and raised in rural Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh. I come from a blue-collar, working-class family. A midwesterner at heart, I completed my undergraduate studies in Psychology at The Ohio State University. Early life experiences shaped my values in compassion, honesty, hard work, and empathy.

I may be a trained clinician, but you are the expert on your life. Therapy is a collaborative process in assisting you to find greater peace in life. It can be hard work, but I’ll help to carry the burden. I look forward to hearing your story.

Long Business Description:

There are few incidents more distressing than the experience of being judged and rejected by a health care professional we went to for help and understanding. Yet this is typical for those of us in alternative lifestyles and can leave us feeling even more hopeless and suspecting maybe we there is something wrong with who we are and what we do that seems so natural and sustaining in our world. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, with 30 years experience in practice – experienced for even longer in alternative sexual lifestyles including BDSM, swinging and polyamory. I am well-versed in working with LGBT individuals as well.

My reputation is known in the alternative field for many years as one of the few therapists in my area (Philadelphia vicinity) to go to for help. While many people come to me through the grapevine or personal encounters, professional colleagues will refer individuals to me as my knowledge and experience in these areas is well known. I am empathetic and provide unconditional respect; however, I will not hesitate in being frank and direct with you when it would be of benefit.

In addition to understanding and collaborating with people who come to me for help, I am skilled in a wide range of therapies and, as you might expect, professional, while deeply unconventional. I strongly believe that therapy should productive and never be boring. My practice is holistic, creative, and results-oriented.

I help with many life-style problems, including communication and contracting, psycho-education, and general counseling. I also specialize in treating varieties of trauma, anxiety disorders, grief, emotional regulation, and self-esteem issues. The therapies I use include various forms of cognitive-behavioral therapies, Mindfulness, Solution-Focused Therapy, Ericksonian Hypnosis, Emotional Freedom Therapy, EMDR, and traditional methods drawn from the shamanistic/spiritual/magical healing practices of other cultures and systems.

Counseling partners can become a primary focus at times, e.g., dealing with the negative reaction of the more straight member, or problems in an alternative relationship(s). However, I will not meet with anyone who is being forced to attend a session (we all know the keystone word: “consensual”). Ultimately, the best way to decide is to talk with me on the phone, and if you feel encouraged, meet with me to see whether there is a fit.

Research has consistently shown that the connection between the individual and the counselor plays the strongest role in therapeutic outcomes. While I do not take insurance for ethical, business, as well as confidential reasons, my sessions are 2 hours and reasonably priced. However, in many cases I can supply receipts which will result in some reimbursement from your insurance company or flex account.

Name of Primary Practitioner:
Michal Rogers
Long Business Description:

I am an Associate Clinical Social Worker (ASW 92435) under supervision by Adrina McCarthy( LMFT #107939)

My Background

*Currently Accepting CA clients only*

 

I’m a native New Yorker living in Los Angeles, I obtained my Bachelor’s from UCLA and Master’s of Social Work from the University of Kansas. I specialized in interdisciplinary healthcare and led groups for behavioral pain management. Since interning in the family clinic at KU, I’ve volunteered at the Los Angeles LGBT Center. I am passionate about mindfulness, sex-positive education, and mental health.

My personal beliefs & interests

2020 has been a doozy of a year for all of us, and we’ve needed to find ways to cope with pandemic-level stress. In addition to YouTube yoga, sourdough bread-making, and Zoom parties, therapy is an indispensable tool for addressing your mental health needs. My goal is to provide a space to unapologetically be yourself and gain personal mastery.

 

My approach is:

 

1. Strengths-based: let’s identify the strengths you already have and use them to accomplish your goals.

 

2. Client-centered: you know you best! I’m here as a facilitator not a director

 

3. Evidenced-based: I love to geek out on data and use methodologies based in research.

 

Therapy is a process. I believe there is no one size fits all solution. As a result, I approach each situation with curiosity and openness. I am here and ready to listen with empathy, ask questions, and suggest therapeutic modalities. Let’s work together to try-on solutions that work best for you.

Name of Primary Practitioner:
Rachel Harlich, LMSW
Long Business Description:

I specialize in working with issues of complex and adulthood trauma, sexual violence and domestic violence, LGBTQ+ populations, substance use and addiction, alternative sexualities such as polyamory/non-monogamy, kink/BDSM, and sex work. I also believe that forms of social oppression such as racism, sexism, ableism, heterosexism, and so on, operate as traumas and stressors as well and thus, are of clinical concern as barriers to wellness. My practice is grounded in the principles of non-judgment, positive regard, harm reduction, and compassion. I earned my Masters in Social Work from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College.

Long Business Description:

There are many different experiences that lead you to being here, now. Those experiences are as much a part of you as the air you breath. Maybe you are looking for a space to get away from the storm of life, and feel a little peace. Maybe your false peace, the face you show the world, needs to be tested and measured against your genuine inner desires. And maybe you just want to be able to laugh for five minutes without feeling like you are letting somebody down by doing so.

I am a clinician in Athens, Georgia. With the University of Georgia right up the road, many of my clients are young people trying to figure out what they want in this life, or how to get what they’ve decided they want. If anything about this offer is of interest to you, I encourage you to reach out. Let’s have a chat, see if I could be of help to you.
