Hello! I'm a sex positive therapist specializing in the LGBTQ+/non monogamous/kinky communities. I also work with chronic health conditions.
Clinical Social Worker in , NY
Through out my time as a clinician, educating myself on issues surrounding the kink and nonmonogamous communities has been core to my practice. I know it can be hard for clients to feel safe talking about these things in therapy, due to fear of judgement from your therapist. I support all consensual activities, and want you to know that you can feel comfortable opening up about all of your identities, kinks and interests with me.
As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community myself, these issues are very close to me and important. I know the difference it can make to have a clinician who identifies similarly to you, and shares some of the same life experiences. I'm also constantly reading and informing myself of new issues in the community, particularly how these issues may be impacted by the intersectionality of other marginalized identities.
Chronic pain and illness change your life significantly. Sometimes, it can be difficult finding answers from doctors and you can feel really hopeless about what to do next. Therapy can be a great place to talk about all of these experiences. I'm very open to finding a way to make therapy a helpful addition to any other treatment you may be having.
