Private psychotherapy practice
I am a sex-positive, kink and ENM knowledgable LCSW in private practice. I am located in New York City and am currently offering therapy through telehealth throughout New York State. I will offer in-person visits for those in NYC or willing to travel there in the near future, but will always offer teletherapy as an option for those for whom it is more convenient.
I am experienced in supporting folks through exploring gender identity, sexual identities, and in managing relationship issues in non-traditional relationships including families of choice and ethically non-monogamous structures.
Many people looking for therapy ask themselves, "Do I really need therapy?" I believe that everyone deserves therapy. You deserve a warm, welcoming, and non-judgmental space to express and explore yourself. I believe that everyone comes to therapy with their own resilience, strengths, and skills and that therapy can be a place to articulate these so you can use them more effectively, build on them, and grow in new ways with support. Whether you've been feeling down or anxious, frustrated with patterns in your relationships, struggling at work, or just feeling "stuck," you can use therapy to reach your goals.
I use an integrative and directive approach to help you better understand how your life experiences, the world we live in, and your identities impact you while also helping you build concrete skills you can use to cope confidently, create more satisfying relationships, and develop a greater sense of meaning in life on a daily basis.
While anyone can benefit from therapy, I am also experienced in treating severe mental illness, personality disorders, thoughts of suicide, and I am passionate about and experienced in treating trauma and the struggles that result from it including PTSD. Whatever you are going through, you don't have to go through it alone. Please feel free to reach out.
