About My Clients

Do you and your partner(s) need help communicating better? Are you tired of therapists who you have to educate about kink, power exchange or non-monogamy? As someone who has lived in power exchange dynamics and through various types of non-monogamy, I understand. Whether you are new to these worlds and need help navigating them or if you need help maintaining these things with your partner(s), I can help!

My Background and Approach

To me, the most important thing to bring to the therapy room is connection with the client. I pull from various theories and strategies to meet my clients where they are. I typically lean into solution focused, cognitive-behavioral, and family systems depending on what seems to connect and work with the client in front of me. We will work on strategies and tools for the present challenges, but also reach back into your history (familial and/or partnerships) as needed when connections seem relevant. I have a full toolbox of communication techniques and strategies to help you find solutions with any relationship - partners, friends, or family. My goal is to help you understand and process your emotions, discover better resolution through healthy communication, and/or help you explore alternative lifestyles, free of judgement and full of understanding.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have been active in the BDSM and non-monogamy worlds, both professionally and personally, for over a decade. Along with my therapy practice, I have dedicated most of that time to helping newbies navigate the world of BDSM and kink because I know how overwhelming it can be! I taught a BDSM 101 class series for over 8 years and started a play party dedicated to and designed for new players. Starting in 2015 I began the SoCal Polyam Support group that meets twice a month (online and in person). More recently I started (along with my partner and sponsored by SanctuaryLAX) the High Protocol Revival Project for those interested in high protocol within power exchange dynamics and events. If you want to find more info about these things plus get links to my YouTube channel and other parties, you can visit my website akinkshrink.com or ask me! Send me a message to find out if we are a good therapeutic match!
