Discover the effectiveness of an experienced body-based therapist for individuals and couples with life and relationship problems. Bonding Psychotherapy incorporates the power of touch and emotional expression to release historic blockages, and liberate energy for personal and relationship growth. This is different from bodywork as there is no massage table in our offices. Individual and couples therapy are complemented with group therapy sessions which incorporate therapeutic touch and deep emotional expression. Together, these modalities help people to release and discover useful emotional material that can be consolidated with the talk therapy. The focus is on the emotional body, as well as the mind. 30 Years of Private Practice with Individuals, Couples and Groups.

Business Excerpt
Over the past decade, my practice has gravitated toward being of service to those who practice alternative sexual lifestyles. From working with people who engage in BDSM and polyamory to swingers, cross-dressers, and just bog standard kinksters, I've heard of so many occasions where, in the first session, the therapist has immediately identified the sexual behavior as the problem and disregarded everything else mentioned. Common among those who come to see me are a history of secrecy, shame, and self-contempt, feelings of inadequacy, or feeling "broken." Anger, anxiety, and confusion, along with a deep-rooted shame, lead to desperation and being overwhelmed. You have chosen a lifestyle that not everyone understands although, if theres a name for it, someones done it. Sometimes, unfortunately, you internalize society's judgmental attitudes, causing you to question your behaviors and beliefs. I can help you before the feelings and behaviors cause damage in your life. I am an experienced Kink-Knowledgeable Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over a decade working as a therapist. I have trained under Patrick Carnes as a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist. However the knowledge I have in this field is broader and less restrictive than SASH. I have worked with the Fire Department of New York since before 9/11. I'm very experienced with PTSD, Depression, and Anxiety Disorders. Also, I have vast experience helping people overcome addictions.

Business Excerpt
An Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) practitioner - a mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral approach focusing on self-compassion and grounded action. I have extensive knowledge of kink/BDSM & poly practices and the community. You will not need to waste your therapy session educating me about alternative lifestyles! My expertise also encompasses identity (multicultural), sexual orientation & gender (LGBTQA). I offer one-on-one talk therapy to adults who are seeking facilitation in their healing and growth. Anxiety, avoidance and escapism, compulsive behaviors, creative obstacles, existential issues, life transitions, difficulties with others, and ego challenges are some specialities. Interventions address overcoming self-limiting beliefs, fostering deep trust in oneself and values-based goals. I see the relationship dynamic within the therapy session as foundational to our work together. As such, the therapeutic alliance can also be an opportunity to model challenging interpersonal situations as they arise including boundary-setting, speaking authentically, tolerating uncertainty, reconciling conflict, and maintaining mutual and unconditional respect for one another's dignity.Josie Valderrama, Psy.D.

Business Excerpt
Many people have found that they thrive in relationship structures that stretch beyond what dominant culture deems "traditional." Exploring sex and sexuality can bring a variety of unique challenges to sense of self and relatoinship. Whether you are in the beginning stages of exploration with a primary partner or you are in an established poly relationship, we can work together to confront vulnerabilities, the dynamics of power and control, and the communication breakdowns that are a part of all relationships. Our therapeutic work can assist in addressing these concerns within the primary couple or your extended relationship structure.

Business Excerpt
I work with leather/power-exchange sex as one of the varied manifestations of the male soul, focusing on its unique meaning for the man/men involved. It's my privilege to work as an ally to other men and to the male soul. I take a male-affirmative approach to counseling and therapy, looking to uncover and honor a man's often unrecognized gifts and accomplishments. Gay or straight (or unlabeled), older or younger, partnered or single, men face a lot of challenges in our lives, and our society complicates them by sending us very mixed messages. We are supposed to be more caring and sensitive and we are also supposed to "man up." The woes of the world are somehow our fault because we're just too...male. And men who don't fit the standard model feel like outsiders. All this adds to the confusion when we develop stressful problems with our sexual lives, our jobs, our relationships or our own habits, thoughts and emotions (and yes, men do have emotions!).Having a respectful, thoughtful and confidential ally can help.I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #MFC37350.My basic therapeutic orientation is rooted in the work of CG Jung.

I offer a no-charge introductory session, Skype or telephone call to anyone considering working with me. I work face to face and over Skype and the phone worldwide with individuals and couples whose lifestyles include D/s, BDSM, cross dressing and/or fetishism. As a UK Registered Psychotherapist (UKCP) and Counsellor (UKRCP) I work with all kinds of individual and relationship issues. My general position on 'kink' preferences is that they are behaviors that arise naturally from a combination of genetic and environmental factors and are not pathological. In addition to being kink knowledgeable I am both kink-friendly and kink-aware. Many of my sexually adventurous clients are also gifted adults. I write a blog for gifted individuals at www.thegiftedway.com. Please email or telephone me to arrange an informatory visit or call.
