    In a dream I was asked, What is it you do? I replied, I am a life saver for human souls. At the time I was working in community mental health and teaching yoga. Since then I have trained as a professional massage therapist. I still have no better answer. I believe that health of mind, body and soul are integral to us all. We each need touch, freedom to move our bodies, and companions who hear us and recognize our potential as human beings, in order to navigate this ocean of life. I offer individual, couple and group psychotherapy (talk therapy) with a focus on working with people who are part of the open-relationship, polyamory and alternative sexuality communities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Additionally I have a practice providing therapeutic massage and individual and small-group yoga instruction. Presenting this information together here speaks to my holistic approach, however if you see me for talk therapy this means that you cannot also see me for massage or yoga instruction, because the ethical standards of Clinical Psychology prohibit having multiple relations with a client. contact email (private): ariella.yoga@gmail.com

    I am a Clinical Social Worker, licensed in the state of California (#86545). My practice currently includes individual and relationship therapy for adults. I believe that the mind and body are complementary parts of the self, and that our wellness is impacted by our social, cultural, and physical environments. I work to help identify and deconstruct systems of oppression and the impact these systems have on our mental health and wellness. I integrate this into the therapeutic process which I believe can be critical for healing. I also incorporate trauma-informed, harm reduction, insight-oriented, relational and mindfulness approaches into my practice, as well as the integration of non-ordinary states of consciousness. I have expertise in queer identities and relationships, and have worked extensively with LGBTQIA+ populations and communities of color, both of which I identify with.

    Some areas of focus within my practice include:
    - LGBTQIA+ populations and communities of color
    - Sexuality and gender identity
    - Non-monogamous, open, polyamorous, alternative relationships
    - Depression
    - Anxiety
    - Trauma processing - abuse, domestic violence, historical/ intergenerational trauma, sexual trauma, community violence, etc.
    - Substance misuse (harm reduction approach)
    - Grief and loss
    - Integration of non-ordinary states of consciousness

    Fees: Please visit my web site to see my current fees

    I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California, offering services at my office in Oakland as well as online to California residents. I provide psychotherapy and coaching for a variety of issues, including trauma, depression, anxiety, living with HIV/AIDS, grief and loss, interpersonal and relationship problems (specifically polyamorous and nonmonogamous folks), questions of sexual identity, confusion around vocation and life purpose, and more. Although I have a diverse practice, my specialties include:

    - EMDR for rapid, effective healing from the enduring impacts of trauma
    - Working with people questioning their gender identity, exploring/pursuing transitioning, or seeking mental health assessment letters for surgery
    - Working with gay men to develop an identity, lifestyle, and relationship that are true to their deepest selves
    - Working with women from a feminist perspective to examine and challenge oppressive social conditioning and double standards at work and in relationships

    My clients find a comfortable, supportive and engaging atmosphere. The process of therapy leads to healing from loss, developing deeper intimacy with others, becoming more resilient, and letting go of emotional patterns that no longer serve you. Effective therapy involves a moment-to-moment experience of both feelings and ideas in order to understand the past, to live more fully in the present and to choose well for the future. My own healing journey and life experience as an artist, photographer, gay man, nature lover, traveler, student, therapy client, Buddhist practitioner and worker for social justice enable me to bring a breadth of understanding and wisdom to the lives of the people with whom I work.

    I am not paneled with any insurance companies other than a few Employee Assistance Programs (see my website for details on this.) I require full payment at the time of each session; however, I can provide a statement that you may use to seek reimbursement from your insurance company if they cover out-of-network therapy services.

    The impact of collective, historic and public events on lives marginalized by dominant cultures often goes unrecognized. Especially for women, LGBT and queer-identified people, people of color and other people marginalized by dominant power paradigms, the body is often a site of cultural dislocation. By working directly with the cultural messages and lessons that have been integrated, often unconsciously, onto the body and psyche, we can begin to create new stories, meanings and choices about being members of our communities and cultures. In my psychotherapy practice I work with people of all genders in the exploration of relationships to the self, to others, and to the communities in which we live. I have extensive experience working with queer, genderqueer, activist, and multicultural communities, queer parents and prospective parents, as well as kink/BDSM and poly communities, and the spaces where these identities overlap. I also teach queer and multicultural psychology and supervise students beginning their clinical fieldwork.

    I work with a variety of folks from a variety of backgrounds. I will not judge you for consensual expressions of your identity and sexuality. I would especially like to welcome to my practice people who have historically been left out of therapeutic healing due to systemic forces. I work with a variety of adults, including but not limited to, LGB and queer people; people in nontraditional, polyamorous, and open relationships; and BDSM/kink practitioners and community members. My clinical specialities include managing depression and suicidality, discovering and supporting individual boundaries, nurturing metamour relationships, and consultation services for helping professionals on working with speciality populations.

    Hopefully, you expect a therapist to be warm, caring, empathetic, and helpful, so I will not emphasize those qualities here. I am nonjudgmental even when not neutral and have excellent pattern recognition/analytical skills. I am high energy, whimsical, and mirthful. I am skilled at verbally describing internal decision-making and emotional processes, often with terrible yet effective metaphors.

    I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who works with individuals, couples, triads etc, friendships and fluid bonded poly communities. My priority as a therapist is to create a safe space for you. When any of us seeks out therapy, we are likely suffering. To suffer is to be in a very tender place, and I want to honor that. Whether your suffering comes from early childhood trauma, more recent losses, relationship problems, social injustice, adjustment to big changes in your life... I want you to feel safe and companioned as you move toward tending those places of wounding and toward healing.

    I have spent my life working to make space for those who know what it is to be an outsider. As a therapist, I value your way of seeing the world and yourself, and I see our work together as very collaborative. My history in activism, the arts and mindfulness informs my approach to psychotherapy. I believe that who we are is influenced not just by our interpersonal relationships but also by our social and political environments, and the standards against which everyone is measured. Part of our work will be allowing you a space outside of those standards to explore your authentic self.

    I work with adults and children, and have worked extensively in the poly, LGBTQIQ, kinky communities.

I believe in tailoring my approach according to each client's concerns, challenges, and unique sociocultural backgrounds with regard to family, race, ethnicity, class, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, and ability. I have a subspecialty in working with transgender and gender nonconforming clients. I also work with people in kink/BDSM communities. I am committed to helping people approach health and growth holistically, with consideration of the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual factors that affect who they are and how they experience the world. - Does online consultation - Does phone consultation

    For most of us, relationships are central to our lives and our well-being. And while they can provide love, passion, connection, awareness, and growth, they can also stir up conflict, breakdown, aversion, old wounds, and a lot of frustration. Sometimes we need a place to work this out. I strive to help people in relationships of all kinds to find their way back through conflict or old conditioning to reconnection, intimacy, and healing. I am direct and pragmatic, and I take a holistic approach that encompasses who you are on all levels: body, mind, and spirit.

    Fees: Please contact me for fee information

    I provide counseling in Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Ojai, California, for all constellations of loving partnerships, including partners who need support to be more loving. If you find yourself in love, looking to improve your love, or hoping to find a healthier love, I am willing to support you with compassionate and tactful guidance. I recognize that not all romantic or intimate relationships are about "that one true love." If you find yourself exploring creative intimacy and want to do that creatively, safely, and with integrity, I will support you.

    I am a culturally competent clinician determined to support all of my clients to be the best that they can be by their own standards and definitions. I will not provide you a path towards conventional success. Rather, I will listen carefully to who you want to become and ask relevant questions so that you can live your unique life with purpose and pride.

    Fees: I see clients in Westwood and Sherman Oaks. My fee is 175$/hr and I am happy to provide a superbill to clients if they choose to seek reimbursement from their insurance company.

    It is clear to me that people's suffering and challenges are not failures of their bodies or minds, but are responses to a culture that has damaging views on sexuality, relationships, bodies, race, and gender. What can be understood can be changed and something better take its place.

    Through mind/body approaches and information from the leading researchers on sexuality and relationships, I help you to get back in touch with yourself and others, communicate more effectively, assist you to shed shame and misconceptions, and create sexy sustainable relationships. I specialize in supporting people within the Ethical Non-monogamy, LGBTQ+, Kink/BDSM, or Sex Worker communities, People of Color and those in interracial relationships.

    Drawing from my 35+ year career as a professor of anthropology specializing in sexuality, gender, marriage and partnering patterns, I am offering my knowledge and deep analysis with singles, couples and multiple-partner configurations. I am especially skilled at working with culturally diverse populations and issues including Polygamy, Arranged Marriage vs. Love Marriage, Culturally Imposed Virginity, Polyamory, Swinging, Cheating, Sexual Assault Accusations, Cybersex/Sexting, BDSM/Kink practices and LBGTQ identities.

    My goal is to enable you to understand the social, cultural and family structures that have led you to seek help. Once we establish the ways the world around you has inhibited the core expression of all you can be and how you might love, we will work to reposition harmful and limiting paradigms. Working with me can be a deep adventure in discovering "what else is possible."

    As one of LAs first out-of-the-closet kinky shrinks and pro-poly crusaders, I have been in the trenches for decades. Straight, gay, bi, innie, outie, it is all good with me. Have found that I work really well with inter-ethnic constellations, boundary breaches and settings, infidelity, creating protocol, and existential issues. I have lived in overlapping relationships and kinky relationships, and 90% of my therapy practice has been working with erotic minority folks. So give me a call if you want, and we will see if we are a match.

    Fees: See my website for more details include info about fees and insurance.

    My practice focuses on the needs of the polyamory/non-monogamy community for both relationship support and mental health treatment. I offer counseling for individual, couples, polycules, and groups. My emphasis is on resilience and relationship wellness rather than pathology. Common things I help clients include: acting in congruence with your boundaries and ethics; identifying and communicating your needs/desires; "owning your shit" and taking responsibility for managing your emotions without displacing this responsibility onto others; cultivating compassion, curiosity and mindfulness; and progressively taking risks to be seen, heard, and valued.

    In terms of clinical style, clients experience my patience and compassion but also know that I'll persistently challenge them to create and capitalize on opportunities for growth. We make use of insights from interactions between us to explore how you might stay stuck in relational or behavioral patterns that hold you back. Our working relationship is grounded in collaboration with a dynamic that's neither passive listening nor super-structured. My style is personable (within professional boundaries) and not overly 'clinical' or rigid.

    My services are sex positive, kink friendly, and LGBTQIA+ affirmative. Free consultation to decide if I'd be a good fit.

In my practice I work with children, adolescents, and adults, and offer individual, family and couples therapy. I specialize in sexual health and well being and am passionate about the power of connection between mind, body and spirit. I work with individuals and couples on understanding themselves as sexual beings, whether this relates to their individual journey or within their relationships. I do this through helping you explore your sexual identity, expression and behaviors, as they relate to your goals. I value being present in the moment, having self-compassion and acceptance for oneself before working on relationships with others. I practice through a holistic lens and a mindful perspective, teaching clients some of the same techniques that I myself practice regularly to cope with the complex challenges life often brings. In my clinical practice, I hold the belief that my client is the expert of their own life and I am here to help you identify your own personal goals and support you on your journey to achieve them. Common issues I work with include: Pregnancy, postpartum, infertility, painful intercourse, orgasm concerns, performance issues, loss of interest/libido, premarital/marital couples counseling, sexual behavior experienced as problematic/compulsive, sexual trauma, body image, and the interplay of religion/spirituality and sex.

    Are you nervous about the process of couples or individual therapy? Have you heard that therapy is hard or painful? Maybe it makes you uncomfortable to let a stranger into your world because you fear you will be judged or branded as the person who has caused all of the problems in the relationship.

    Let me assure you that I am a genuine person, and I want our time together to feel like you are having a conversation with a trusted confidant. My job is to make you feel comfortable, supported and safe so we can figure out together how to make your relationship better. I have no agenda or desire to figure who is wrong in the relationship. Blame doesn't create good outcomes, so we won't even go there.

    My style of therapy is very much like my personality: down to earth, humble, funny, slightly sarcastic, direct, and blunt in a loving way. I have a sense of humor about myself, and I encourage my clients to adopt the same attitude. I hope you come away with the feeling I am really invested in you. Telling me your thoughts and feeling won't scare me, surprise me or make me judge you.

    My office is a place to find support, empathy, and outside-of-the-box ways of thinking about problems. I have extensive experience with couples who are working through addiction recovery, want pre-marital counseling, and/or are LGBTQIA identified. I also love working with couples and individuals who struggle with being people pleasers and find it difficult to ask for their needs in relationships.

    I am incredibly enthusiastic and tend to be an overachiever working with clients who are motivated and open to change. I've invested in the highest level of training because I truly want your relationship to be a success. I have some great tools I can share with you to get your conversations moving in a new direction.

    There are many reasons why you might be considering therapy at this time: a long-standing problem, the impact of a current life situation, and/or wanting support for your personal growth. Whatever your reasons, I know that it is important for you to find a therapist with whom you feel you can develop a good working relationship - someone whom you feel you can trust, who can understand your situation, someone with solid training and experience.

    In our work together we will come to understand more about the sense you may have that your life is not your own - feeling stuck, feeling driven by old habits, feeling depressed, feeling consumed and forestalled by rage, feeling that change is needed in your relationship or in your career.

    You and I will work together to build a trusting and non-judgmental relationship where you can feel safe to talk about yourself openly. The strength of our relationship is a crucial foundation for our work together. You know your life better than anyone else. Therefore, we will hold great respect for your wisdom about yourself. I will offer my professional knowledge and wisdom as well, and together, we will work to help you discover how to live the life that is best and most fitting for you. Please contact me for a free 15 minute phone consultation.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    My underlying orientation is looking at the person(s) in environment, which includes a strong social justice commitment. It is important to understand how issues such as lack of access to housing, a poor economy, homophobia, sexism, and racism impact upon what we perceive as our individual or family problems.

I emphasize the body's ability to heal itself and the regenerative potential of the therapeutic relationship.

    I welcome people of all races, ethnicities, genders, and sexual orientations. You may identify as queer, genderqueer, male, female, trans, non-binary, gay, straight, pansexual, asexual, kinky, religious, spiritual, atheist, and I look forward to talking with you about how these distinctions of self, and more, inform your reality. I also practice at the Center for Mindful Psychotherapy

    My approach is a flexible, organic experience of healing for many emotional concerns, particularly anxiety, sadness, grief, fear, shame, anger, loneliness, guilt, sexual and creative blockages. We work to bring the hidden into light. That which has caused you to distort your inner strength can be brought to the foreground and choices can be made. I embrace all gender expressions and sexual orientations. I have experience supporting a variety of relationship configurations and lifestyles, and can assist in navigating issues that can surface in these choices, such as boredom, jealousy, intimacy blockages, differing needs and desires, sexual and emotional satisfaction.

    Influenced by the works of Fritz Perls, Wilhelm Reich and Rollo May, I will help you explore what has been fed to you and become indigestible. We will work to move through the layers of pain towards a new, authentic expression of Self.

    I believe that we are continually remaking and creating ourselves and our experiences. Sometimes we do this without awareness, and suffer from self-deception and distortion. The goal is for you to become aware of what you are doing, how you are doing it, and how you can change.

    Individuals: Individual work is core to my practice. I work with adults and adolescents. Together we can explore whatever you feel to be disturbing your experience of life, particularly depression, anxiety, grief, loneliness, spiritual and creative blocks, illness, childhood abuse, trauma or issues related to sexuality, gender expression, and intimacy.

    Couples: In working with couples, I assist my clients in their exploration of relationship. I work with intimate partners, siblings, business partners and friendship pairs. I am particularly drawn towards working with couples who are in the process of changing the way they experience relationship, whether that change is one of coming together, or moving apart.

    Families and Groups: I have a broad definition of family, ranging from the traditional nuclear family to families of choice and nontraditional configuration. I can assist you in exploring the patterns that sometimes interfere with the healthy functioning of the family system. I also work with groups, some short term, and others long term. Please inquire for further information about newly forming groups, and groups open to new members.

    Areas of Specialty: Depression, Sadness, Loneliness and Grief; Anxiety; Career and Life Transitions ; Men's Issues; Business Partner Struggles; Sexuality, Intimacy and Relationship Concerns; LGBT, Kink and Queer Community Issues; Spiritual Exploration; Shame; HIV and AIDS; Addiction and Compulsive Behaviors; Adult Children of Alcoholics; End of Life Issues.

    Fees: I don't currently accept insurance and my fee is $180 per 50 minutes of psychotherapy. I am able to provide a "Superbill" which can be submitted to your insurance for reimbursement.

    I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I studied Counseling Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) with a specialization in Somatic Psychotherapy. Much of my seven years of therapeutic experience comes from my time serving marginalized communities in various Community Mental Health Settings. My current practice focuses on providing trauma-informed psychodynamic psychotherapy to adults and adolescents who identify (or think they may identify) with being part of the LGBT, Queer, Poly, Gender Non-Conforming and Kinky communities. I have a passion for social justice issues and exploring how systems of oppression impact marginalized communities. I use a harm reduction approach for those who use substances, and I'm also enthusiastic about creating a safe space to explore and integrate themes that may arise during the course of a psychedelic journey. My approach is eclectic and holistic for those who are facing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. I am also thrilled to be a member of the Health at Every Size (HAES) community, and I strive to provide competent care for all bodies.

    Poly/kink friendly, extensive experience in the LGBTQ communities; specializing in trauma recovery, grief & loss, life transitions, anxiety, insomnia, social and sexual issues, spiritual concerns, non-traditional life styles, parenting, pre- and post-surgery recovery. I welcome adults, teens and children to my practice.

    I invite you to become an active agent in the story of your life. My intention is to assist you in strengthening your connection with yourself at a soul level and to support you in creating a life path that is fulfilling on a personal level as well as one which brings your unique gifts into our interconnected world.

    Through the use of hypnosis, you experience an altered state of consciousness that allows you to directly access your subconscious mind. By speaking to the subconscious in language it can easily hear you change patterns you have outgrown - creating new healthy images out of the old.

    You use an intention to work toward your personal goals, and you are the one who is controlling the process. As a result, you remove subconscious blocks and find guidance from within your deep self.

    In my practice I use Hypnotherapy by itself or combine it with Reiki, based on your personal choices and needs. The combined approach is especially helpful for physical manifestations of emotional issues or for supporting deep inner healing.

    Languages: English, German, Polish. Sliding Scale available.

    I am a licensed psychotherapist with about 10 years of personal and professional experience with non-monogamy, and I specialize in working with couples. I work mostly with primary couples who want to strengthen their bond as one partner or both begin to include others in some deeper emotional and/or sexual way. I've helped many couples successfully move through the early stages of opening their relationship, and I've helped those who've been open for some time and need to repair a recent misstep or reevaluate their relationship. My approach emphasizes communication that is heard, felt and understood. I can also offer lots of tools, ideas and insights for couples who are new to open relationships. With an attitude of humor, curiosity and compassion, I want to help you find the structure that works for you. I have been in both monogamous and open relationships and am not biased toward one or the other. I believe it is important for each couple to find the relationship structure that best suits their needs and goals. I am committed to assisting those with any gender identity in finding love and connection. I have experience working with couples who desire to feel close again, need to regain trust after the crisis of an affair or loss, or need help with a specific issue such as sex, money or open relationship. We will locate where communication breaks down, explore the underlying feelings, and emphasize the resources and positive feelings that are sometimes withheld. I only accept out-of-network insurance coverage. I am available for Skype sessions for California residents.

    Therapy is a process. It is a living and breathing evolution in understanding. And self-discovery is both the journey and the destination. Curiosity about yourself, and the desire to understand the way your world works, is the jumping-off point. What is your primary way of knowing what you know? What are your defenses and where do they come from? What is your range of emotions and how do they serve you? What drives you, and what holds you back? Heightening our own awareness of our intentions, our triggers, assumptions we make, and patterns we repeat, gives us a keener sense of our strengths, limitations, and purpose. Change is a constant in the universe-at-large and in our personal sets of circumstances. In asking (and answering) these questions of ourselves, we develop our own unique set of tools to adapt, cope, heal and thrive. (What we are conscious of, we control. What we are unconscious of controls us. - Anonymous) My areas of special focus include sex workers, alternative sexuality and gender, polyamorous lifestyles, body image, and personal and family relationships. The space we will create together will be one of non-judgment and unconditional understanding. And you will set the direction, pace and boundaries of our conversation. So, whenever you are ready, come on in. Have a seat. I am looking forward to knowing you. Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Intern, IMF 70302.

    Making the decision to begin therapy can be a difficult one. Whether it is to enter into therapy for the first time or to resume the process after a hiatus, I commend you for seeking assistance, counsel, and a compassionate ear.

I have over 20 years of experience in this field and have an expertise in clients who are poly/kink/swingers. The art of therapy is knowing when to listen quietly and compassionately, when to offer up practical advice and tools, and/or when to bring up an unconscious dynamic that is unduly influencing the course of your direction. After 20 years of studying and practicing this art, I can offer you this subtle yet profoundly important expertise.

    Phone: 408-296-0966 Email: ednawallacemft@gmail.com  Website: http://www.ednawallace.com/ 
    Fees: $220 for 1-hour couples session, $180 for 50-minute individual session. Details below.

    I am a psychotherapist in the South Bay with a specialty focus on alternative lifestyles--including polyamory, swinging, and kink/BDSM involvement. I have helped many individuals and couples navigate these lifestyle choices, and I realize how important it is to talk to someone who is open to non-monogamous lifestyles and who is open-minded in general. I know how important it is not to feel judged for the lifestyle you are leading even if it goes against prevailing social norms. By contrast, I aim to listen closely to what YOU are bringing in: what is strong in your life and where you may be struggling or having emotional pain.

    It is difficult to start a course of therapy. But if you are in emotional pain, it can feel like moods and issues are running your life rather than you doing so. This can leave you feeling lost, confused, and distressed. When you are under this dark cloud, it can be very helpful to talk to an objective outsider in a safe, confidential, and professional yet intimate setting. My goal is to work together to recognize hindrances and unhelpful patterns and to accentuate personal strengths in order to regain a sense of agency and equanimity in your life.

    I have more than 15 years experience in the mental health field. I have been trained in Positive Psychology, Group therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness coping skills. These methods can help alleviate symptoms of depression or anxiety and address debilitating aspects of trauma. For more information, see www.ednawallace.com.

    Per my website, I charge $220 for a couples session (1 hour) and $180 for an individual session (50 minutes). I am not on any insurance panels, but you can submit my super bill to your insurance if they offer out-of-network provider benefits. In addition, I have some sliding scale spots.

    I look forward to working with you!

    The focus of my practice is relationship and sexual issues. I work with individuals, couples, dyads, and constellations. For poly folks I can help with forging agreements, healing broken agreements, infidelity, jealousy, kink, cultivating compersion, poly desire discrepancy (one person wants it, the other doesn't), family structure and discernments, mono-poly relationships, and many more issues. I often use two simple but powerful questions to sort through the interweaving threads of needs and feelings, "What kind of partner do you want to be?" then I help you be it right now and "What kind of relationship(s) do you want to create?" then I help you figure out how to create the invitation for it right now. My style is active, emotionally focused, and practical. I jump in and offer suggestions, I help you speak from your heart not your head, and I give and follow-up on homework assignments to help you improve your relationship.

    As a poly person myself, I've experienced many common challenges including dating, calendaring, processing fatigue, introducing partners to kids, and yes, of course, jealousy.

    Hi! Congratulations on taking this step toward getting connected with a therapist. Engaging in counseling can be one of the most impactful things you do for yourself and your relationship(s). I am experienced with poly relationships of many configurations, as well as some of the challenges that often arise when a couple is navigating opening up their relationship. I am also comfortable and experienced with all gender identities and expressions, as well as a broad spectrum of sexualities (e.g., queer, same-gender-loving, kink). Some other presenting concerns I also frequently work with include anxiety and depression, spiritual concerns, trauma, and family of origin issues. My style is warm and gentle but direct. I look forward to learning about you, and how I can support you in living your life at its fullest and best potential -- even if that seems an impossibly long way off from here.

    Therapy is an amazing placebo. You do not NEED a therapist to learn, transform, and grow your awareness of yourself. I firmly believe whatever it is you are seeking to learn, change, or make peace with, you can do it. The benefit of working with a trained therapist who sees you, gives your sense of agency and innate wisdom the respect it deserves, and offers an outside perspective on your experience informed by evidenced-based theory and practice, is that the pace of growth is greatly accelerated.

    I arrived at clinical work after the suffering I uncovered in English and History overwhelmed me. What the long journey of higher education and years of practice have revealed is that the business of living is NOT figuring things out, but showing up. Authentic, full, vulnerable, and teachable.

    I'm a geek many times over, but I'm primarily a sex and systems geek. I am enthusiastic about work with couples, poly groups, and alternative sexualities. I invite you to encounter yourself and your relationships differently, using a combination of experiential and cognitive interventions.

Are you hitting hard spots in a relationship but are wary about seeking counseling for fear that important aspects of that relationship will not be understood? I specialize in working with adults and children who have found themselves out-of-the-box in one way or another, whether that be high sensitivity or learning, neurological, or physical differences, gender expression or sexual orientation and expression, or simply an unconventional experience and expression of life.

I use and teach a body-oriented, mindful, heart-centered approach to resolve these hurts and develop new strategies. I welcome the unique and authentic in each person and relationship and honor the ways that each person, by being themselves, opens up more room in the world.

    The foundation of my therapy is to create a safe, non-judgemental space for the client to discover their inherent wisdom and healing potential. The relationships I build with clients are based on empathy and respect for the client's unique process. The human self is not a static entity. We are always unfolding and becoming, in each moment. Sometimes, trauma cuts us off from this process of unfolding. Many of us have learned maladaptive coping strategies in response to traumatic environments. Later in life, this may lead us to become “stuck” in self-destructive habits or unhealthy relationships. We may hold trauma in the body, which keeps us constricted and disconnected from the world around us. I focus on empowering clients to break out of those patterns and live fuller lives. I help clients develop skills to manage overwhelming emotions, through mindfulness, self-care and nurturing connections with others. My goal is not just to provide tools for clients to manage problems, but rather, to help them develop an internal sense of strength and resiliency. My primary focus, in therapy, is on the here-and-now. I use techniques of mindfulness and body awareness to deepen understanding of emotions, and how they affect human connection in the present moment. I also teach meditation practices for relaxation and anxiety management. These may include breathing and visualization exercises. I work with clients to discover meditation practices that suit their unique needs. I have a background in both Transpersonal and Existential psychotherapy. I support the client's freedom to find their own source of meaning in their lives. I honor each client's unique spiritual path, and create safe space for diverse religious traditions. I collaborate with clients to create their own rituals to honor life transitions, empower themselves, process grief and move beyond trauma. I have a real passion for exploring dreams with clients, drawing influence from both Gestalt and Jungian dream work. I specialize in working with the LGBT and Poly community. I work with individuals of all genders and sexual orientations.

    I am a relationship therapist in Fort Collins who works with couples and individuals who are struggling with intimacy issues. Some couples discover that polyamory and similar open arrangements can be both rewarding and challenging as they work to establish rules of fidelity in their partnership. In our work together, we will explore current concerns, and we may look at the erotic blueprints of childhood that can impact your intimate relationships. I will also provide practical, solution focused tools to help you get your intimate life back on track. I am friendly and affirming of all forms of sexual expression and look forward to helping you create an open, loving partnership.

    I specialize in working with LGBTQIA couples and families. I work with families and individuals of all ages. I believe that families come in all shapes, sizes, and configurations and honor each client's right to define their own family structure.

    I specialize in concerns and distress around sexual orientation, sexual expression, and sexual desire. I am a sex-positive therapist that is supportive of all forms of consensual sexual activity and a variety of alternative lifestyles. I also have extensive knowledge about nonmonogamous lifestyles, am poly-friendly, and kink aware.

    I specialize in addressing concerns and distress regarding gender identity. I believe that gender expression is a spectrum and understand that many people do not fit into the binary understanding of gender. I can assist families in understanding the developmental issues surrounding gender expression, assist parents in processing their own reactions to their child's gender expressions, and strive to promote family support, providing referrals and education about treatment options for people that present with gender dysphoria. I also assist adults in exploring their own gender identity, promote authentic gender expression, and can support clients who desire to seek medical transition.

    Fees: $135 for a 50 minute individual session, $160 for couple's 50 minute session, and $205 for couple's 90 minute session.

    As a therapist, I am highly versed in working with many different polyamorous dynamics and relationship constellations. Particular specializations of mine include working with polyamory in the LGBTQIA populations, BDSM and kink identities, and developing strong, sex positive, healthy relationships. I specialize in working with Gender, Sexuality, and Sex Therapy with individuals, relationships, and families. Entwine Therapy is founded on the idea that all aspects of our lives are connected. When we are stunted or limited in one space of life, we cannot truly express ourselves in the other places, hindering us from being the most authentic version of ourselves. Equally, finding full expression and growth in challenging areas of life creates a network of personal development in other avenues. At Entwine Therapy, I focus on facilitating growth for individuals and relationships so they can gain a greater sense of equilibrium and excellence in their lives. I am dedicated to helping you build strong relationships with yourself and others, and healing fractures in healthy development that hinder achieving your own excellence. I believe that every individual's story is unique and valuable. You are choosing to take brave step in the direction of your own growth!

    I am an English-speaking, sex-positive, LGBTQ-affirming, and kink-aware, licensed clinical and health psychologist in Colorado who specializes in polyamorous and other non-traditional relationships and lifestyles. I am currently accepting new adult clients for individual therapy and partners counseling. I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to new clients to help determine if it would be a good fit for working together. I do home-based, phone and also HIPAA-compliant video conferencing sessions. I try to make therapy affordable to as many people as possible and thus offer a sliding fee scale as necessary to my clients. For many people, poly is more than a chosen relationship structure - it is an identity. As your therapist, I do not assume that your identity or relationship structure is the source of your concerns. While polyamory can provide satisfying relationships and rich opportunities for personal growth, it may also bring its own unique set of challenges. With personal and professional experience, I can help you navigate through arising concerns and topics such as:

    Deciding what form of polyamory is best for you

    Negotiating agreements and boundaries of relationships

    Approaching the "coming out" process

    Negotiating relationship parameters

    Jealousy management

    Improving communication

    Time management

    Cultural differences

    Infidelity and broken trust

    Power dynamics

    Reed Lindberg, M.A., L.P.C., is the Managing Director of the Boulder Psychotherapy Institute. He is a couples therapist with 20 years experience. He refers to his work as \"Relationship, Sex and Romance Counseling,\" and he works with people of all sexual orientations, and feels privileged to share in the inner and interpersonal worlds of his clients and to work with them on their personal and relationship issues. Reed works to restore playfulness and trust to a relationship that may have grown mired in everyday life. His therapy is a mutual exploration of a couple\'s issues and strengths. He works with both individuals and couples. Reed offers a free initial session to help see if we will work well together. Reed uses an existential perspective supplemented by Gestalt therapy and other approaches. Existential therapy starts from the assumption that we do not have a \"\"static self\"\" and are free to make significant changes in our lives and in the ways that we relate to each other. It encourages each person\'s freedom while building relationship. It works with authenticity. Neither freedom nor connectedness are ignored. A therapist must be willing to \"\"go there\"\" with clients if he is to help them extricate themselves from the impact of the past. But he believes that it is the release of creativity and authentic relatedness in the present that is the aim of psychotherapy. Reed also works with language and communication to help change the style of a couple\'s dynamics. Resentments and even anger may tinge a couple\'s interactions - a trusted third party, through observation and coaching, can help modify the words and attitudes that bring frustration to a relationship. To understand, respect, and be present to the lived reality of others is one of the great privileges of living in relationship and of being a psychotherapist.

My mission as a therapist is to provide a compassionate, non-judgmental space where you feel free to express yourself. I respect the mind, body, and spirit to promote clients' vitality, passion and purpose. I honor the uniqueness of each individual while allowing the family to bloom. I believe therapy should be a collaborative process between the client and me. I value working with clients' strengths as a way to help clients reach goals and make positive changes. I believe therapy is not meant to fix parts of us that are broken but to allow us to become the best version of ourselves.

    The intimacy you and your partner(s) experience together is strongly linked to what you share in friendship, love, trust, communication, respect, sex, and mutual support. When some of those elements are missing in your relationship, it can feel confusing, lonely and frustrating. As an experienced relationship and sex therapist, I can help you identify recurring patterns that have created distance between you as you rebuild a new level of intimacy and emotional safety with your partner(s). You'll leave therapy knowing a lot more about yourself, your partner(s), and your relationship(s).

    Common themes in polyamory include negotiation of agreements, relevance of hierarchies and 'veto' power, moving from monogamy to non-monogamy, process of 'coming out' to friends and family, impact of personal insecurities/jealousy on relationship, and infidelity. I specialize in working with adults who live in alternative lifestyles, including polyamory and other forms of non-monogamy, kink and BDSM, and sex work. I can also help you address sexual disorders in conjunction with your primary physician. I support individuals with all forms of sexual orientation and gender identity- LGBTQIA and heterosexual.

    I am a psychotherapist in private practice in Boulder, CO, with a specialty in working with individuals around issues of gender and sexuality. I also have a specialty in providing empirically supported treatment for anxiety disorders (PTSD, OCD, phobias, social anxiety, etc.). With respect to gender and sexuality, the bulk of my work is with individuals exploring their gender identity and/or navigating gender transition. I provide psychotherapeutic support for this, as well as assessments for letters of eligibility for beginning puberty blockers, hormone therapy, or gender surgeries. A slightly smaller % of my clientele are generally those in the GLBIQQP area of the sexuality spectrum, as well as individuals who identify as poly or kinky. Some clients come to me for help with issues directly related to a polyamorous relationship, others see me for unrelated matters but want to see a therapist who is poly-affirming.

    I am a licensed, bilingual, clinical psychologist with over seven years of experience providing individual and group therapy in the Washington, DC metro area. I work with adults and older adolescents who present with a wide variety of concerns such as relationship challenges, life transitions, self-esteem, women's issues, perfectionism, stress management, anxiety, and depression. I specialize in working with trauma survivors, LGBTQ+ folks, individuals looking to explore cultural/identity issues, college/graduate students, and individuals in polyamorous/consensually non-monogamous/kink/BDSM relationships.

    I am a sex-positive clinician who is aware and affirming of sexual diversity, including polyamory, consensual non-monogamy (CNM), kink, BDSM, altsex communities and other sexual identities. I recognize that sexual diversity is more than sexual orientation. It includes our sexual and relationship structure, orientation, preferences and practices. All people deserve to meet with a therapist who understands and affirms their relationship identity and sexual practices without unnecessarily making that a focus of treatment. My practice is a safe and inclusive space for all identities.

    As an LGBTQ therapist, I am committed to providing a safe and affirming space for diverse sexual and gender identities. If you are struggling with feelings or experiences of shame, confusion, anxiety, depression, rejection, discrimination, or bullying due to your sexual or gender identity, therapy can offer a healing space to process these negative experiences and improve your sense of belonging, self-acceptance, and self-worth as well as your relationships with others. Therapy can also be a useful space to deepen our relationship with ourselves and learn what it means to love ourselves radically.

    I am an out-of-network provider, which means I do not accept payment directly from insurance companies. However, most insurance plans offer part or full coverage for out-of-network mental health services. Please contact me to discuss my services and fees further.

In working with LGBTQI people and others with marginalized identities, I work from an approach informed by a minority stress perspective, which encompasses both vulnerability and resilience.* Clinical issues I address include those related to anxiety, depression, trauma, sexual dysfunction, substance abuse and other compulsive behaviors, relationship and intimacy difficulties.

    The goal of my practice is to help you feel better and accept yourself; not just by addressing anxiety and depression and avoiding the things that feel bad but also by engaging with what brings you pleasure, joy and a sense of connection. This can be through an exploration of sexuality or through whatever you find in your life that makes you feel passionate and alive.

    In my office, you will find that difference is not just accepted but celebrated.

    I work with individuals and people in relationships to develop a loving, accepting and kind method of communication with each other. Together we can change behaviors, resolve issues, improve sexual functioning, manage anxiety, depression and other complex feelings and cope better with pain and suffering.

    Working together is always a unique experience customized to your needs. I have experience using psychodynamic, mindfulness, Imago and cognitive behavioral approaches to therapy and I try to choose the methodology that suits best for the individuals in my office.

    I have a special interest in supporting people through issues related to sexual exploration, sexual functioning, sexual identity and gender identity. Clients who are in non-monogamous relationships, swinger, polyamorous and/or kink relationships are welcome.

    Joe Turner works with adults and elders with a wide range of life styles and orientations. We may work with patterns of thinking, or with your deep emotions. We can include emotionally supportive hypnotherapy if that's appropriated. Your needs set the pace. There's no fee to chat, to see if you feel a personal match. Contact me today.

    “My life, and yours, is a dance between destiny and freedom” —Sam Keen I have successfully worked with adolescents and adults from a wide variety of walks of life since 2000, and can attest to the fact that what people often refer to as “destiny” is frequently created by them through their beliefs and patterns of interacting with themselves and the world. Changing these set ways not only helps individuals to find a better solutions to problems they are facing, whether it is in their personal life or business, but also attain freedom from burdens of the past. Some of the problem areas I specialized in include: life-stage and professional transitions, grief and loss, abuse, PTSD, dissociative disorders, OCD, anxiety, depression, body image issues, eating disorders, sexuality, addictions, self-injury, relationship problems, spiritual and existential dilemmas/crises. I work with individuals, couples, and groups. I am fluent in Ukrainian, Russian, and can also communicate in Polish and Spanish. My therapy approach is multifaceted and highly interactive; in it, I emphasize the importance of self-awareness, inner reflection, and the essential need to balance the mind, body, and spirit. In our work the twists and turns that come your way will transform into an adventure of SELF-discovery, necessary for you to reach your highest potential. - Does phone consultation

    I work with individuals, couples, and families (whether by blood or chosen). I don't subscribe to one particular theory or way that therapy should "work". I'm eclectic in my approach and believe in a strengths perspective. Focusing on how you have done things well, what you are proud of, and how you have made it thus far in your life is as important, if not more so, then what you feel may be wrong at this point. I strive to help people feel better, more connected, and more in tune with themselves and those around them.

    I am trained a sex therapist by Dr. Domeena Renshaw and I provide sex therapy around a wide range of issues including but not limited to: sexual intimacy problems, low sex drive, or differing sex drives in relationships, BDSM/kink, polyamorous or non-monogamous relationships, sexual issues related to chronic illnesses such as cancer, stroke, HIV/AIDS & depression, gender identity & LGBTQI communities. As a consultant and trainer, I am passionate about educating medical providers to be culturally competent, specifically as it relates to gender & sexuality issues, so that no person feels like they have to educate their health care provider themselves in order to receive competent services.

    For me, therapy is about listening, not just responding. I want clients to feel safe, secure, and feel validated. My style is person centered, solution focused, and highly collaborative. I tend to use a psychodynamic, strengths-based approach that enhances skills you already use, mixed with a variety of evidence-based therapeutic techniques, including CBT, DBT, family of origin, and feminist therapy. Rather than just one technique, I tailor my sessions your need. I regularly train and keep current on best practices to ensure I am competent on evidence based techniques as it relates to LGBTQ community and relationship diverse communities.

Sex: Sex Coaching is a more recent and somewhat broader approach to addressing concerns about sexual functioning and satisfaction, where specific sexual disorders and dysfunctions are not present. Typically, clients play a larger role in defining their goals and take more responsibility for accomplishing them. The goals are more likely related to self-awareness, enhanced erotic responsiveness, and emotional intimacy. Our focus is to provide information, suggestions, and support for beginning new ways of thinking, behaving, and responding. This often includes a much broader array of home assignments. - Does online consultation

    Poly, non-monogamous, and mixed-orientation relationships are just as diverse as monogamous ones. Folks can have any number of intimacy dynamics and creative agreements that may need to be renegotiated from time to time, and that requires knowledge of ourselves and clear communication. While not every client will have a need to discuss their relationships or sexuality, every client deserves a therapist who is accepting and affirming of their relationship choices. I work with diverse genders, sexualities, and relationships. I see clients across the lifespan (kids, teens, and adults), for individual, relationship, and family therapy. In particular, I specialize in working with the minorities within the broader LGBT minority, such as poly, bi, kinky, and genderqueer folks. In addition to my private practice, I facilitate a drop-in group for bisexual and bi-curious men ("men" inclusive of trans* folks) at Fenway Community Health in Boston, addressing topics such as Getting Past Stereotypes, Monogamy and Polyamory, Coming Out, and Queering Sexuality. I am a member of WPATH, the World Professional Association for Transgender Health, and have received the Unsung Hero Award from the Bisexual Resource Center.

    I have been working w Boston area clients for over 30 years on many issues… Overcoming depression, anxiety, and effects of past trauma as well as the addictive patterns many of us use to avoid pain… (alcohol, food, ‘”people, places and things’” etc). Also establishing satisfying relationships… families.. careers. And growth in spiritual development. I have been working with folks ion the Poly and Kink community for 10 years or so and appreciate the integrity and dedication of many of my Poly and/or Kink clients. I have much experience with Bisexual, Lesbian, Gay, Trans and Questioning clients. The most important thing to me is to assist folks to grow in their ability to love and support themselves … and as a result to have more flourishing relationships of all sorts. I am constantly inspired by the obstacles clients overcome…. And honored to be invited to assist clients on their journey. These days I offer many coaching and energy-focusing tools to enhance the process. Clients and I also really treasure good conversations that bring out feelings, understandings, and solutions. Currently only insurance that allows “Out of Network Providers” can cover my work. However, my sliding scale is surprisingly flexible. Please see my website for more. - Does phone consultation

    HOPE AND HELP FOR YOUR RELATIONSHIP Your relationship is deeply important. When emotional and physical intimacy break down, it's easy to get stuck in despair or resentment. The choices seem awful: stay in this depressing situation or leave. But there's a third way: get help to move past the hurt and rediscover the joy you once felt. You can stop the fighting, enjoy satisfying sex, rebuild trust, and end abuse. With stronger communication and renewed commitment, your relationship will thrive. From my own life and my work as a counselor, I know how hard it is to stay connected over the long term. I also know it's worth it. My research-based approach dramatically reduces the risk of separation and divorce. Your relationship is worth fighting for. I can help you: -- Bring back warmth and connection -- Overcome frustrating sexual issues -- Make sense of your unconventional relationship -- Put an end to hurtful and abusive behavior The first step toward getting help is often the hardest. Having the right person on your side as you rebuild your relationship makes a big difference. Call me for a free consultation. I look forward to working with you.

    People tend to come to therapy when they find themselves at an impasse. Maybe you are facing a major decision, or an old way of coping has stopped working. Maybe you feel blocked from pursuing something you want. Most of my patients have significant strengths, and are functioning well in many areas of life, but come to therapy because they feel blocked in some important way, or sense that they could be more at ease, more flexible, more able to enjoy the positive things in their lives.

    Of course, even very high-functioning people can experience very serious psychiatric symptoms. I have worked well with individuals struggling with anxiety (including panic, worry, and trauma) and mood disorders such as depression.

    I particularly enjoy working with people in the LGBTQ community and have worked well with trans or nonbinary people in various stages of transition. I welcome patients with 'alternative' sexualities, including polyamory and kink and strive to provide an open, non-judgmental space for all my patients.

    I work with adults 18+ only, and only with individuals. I am happy to assist with referrals for couples, but do not see couples in my practice.

    Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions!

    December 2019: I am not accepting new clients currently.

    I am a psychotherapist specializing in working with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, and relationship issues with a special interest and experience in working with those in, or considering, polyamorous/ethically nonmonogamous relationships. I also specialize in working with individuals in other forms of alternative sexuality, such as BDSM/kink. I welcome individuals in the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as from the genderqueer/gender non-binary/agender community. Additionally, I work with individuals, couples and polycules/relationship constellations.

    My approach is warm and empathic, with an eclectic approach encompassing relational, solution-focused and psychodynamic elements. I also utilize cognitive and behavioral tools and methods.

    I accept Blue Cross/Blue Shield MA insurance, and will soon be accepting Tufts and Optum (both MA). I do have sliding scale spots available.

    I occasionally lead short-term therapist facilitated process groups for individuals who identify as polyamorous, in an open relationship, or as ethically non-monogamous. This is a chance to discuss thoughts and concerns about non-traditional relationships in a safe space, build self-awareness around your own relationship needs and desires, explore group and family dynamics when having multiple relationships, improve communication skills and expand peer support. Individuals, couples, and relationship constellations/polycules age 18+ welcomed.

    Are you tired of looking for a therapist who "gets it"? It can be infuriating to have to take the time to explain who you are to someone who may pathologize you, treat you like a novelty, or avoid talking about the relationships, behaviors, and events that are important to you. You don't have to separate your personal and social justice values from your desire for compassionate support. You can finally have what you have been looking for. As a feminist therapist, I support your progressive values and celebrate the unique ways you express your gender or choose to live and love in your body. I can see your strengths as well as your challenges. This can make it easier to build trust, so you can focus on your goals and personal growth.

    I completed my Masters thesis as "Discrimination of BDSM Identified Individuals in a Therepeutic Setting." I am kink friendly, kink aware, and open-minded. If you are looking for a therapist who will treat YOU and not your lifestyle, you've come to the right place! The human mind is an amazing thing! Not so long ago, scientists and other medical experts believed that once damaged, the brain could not heal. We now know that is not true. We also have a better understanding of how the brain stores information, including past trauma, and how it is able to heal itself. The mind and body are intrinsically connected. Traumatic injury to the body and psyche are stored in the mind, and if the trauma is unprocessed, the mind replays the trauma over and over again, expecting or hoping for a new result. I am experienced in helping clients to process sexual issues, trauma, PTSD, and personality disorders. I am certified in EMDR, which engages the brain's hippocampus where trauma is processed. It sometimes results in shorter therapy. Overall, I utilize an eclectic approach to help you become a stronger, healthier you. - Does online consultation

    My name is Dr. Joe Ippolito. I am a 43-year-old Doctor of Psychology and Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in Minnesota. I have been providing Psychotherapy treatment to individuals, couples and families for over 10 years. In addition to being a clinician, I am an educator, researcher and advocate. Finding the right psychotherapist can be challenging, especially if your lifestyle choices fall outside of what is considered “normal” by mainstream society. Everyone—including individuals who are part of alternative relationships—deserves a psychotherapist who understands where they are coming from. I have been working with sexual and gender minorities, and those who fall outside of the mainstream, for 12 years. I have encountered all kinds of sexuality and relationship issues, concerns and problems, and am very open to hearing about new ones. My Therapy Approach is psychodynamic in orientation and incorporates various therapeutic approaches. I do my best to tailor this approach to suit an individual client’s personality styles, therapeutic preferences and personal needs. Some of the therapeutic approaches used include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Modern Psychoanalysis Techniques, Feminist Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. The primary goal behind my therapeutic work is to help clients: identify negative thoughts, embrace unwanted feelings, confront life-related problems, reshape self-identified negative behaviors and—in general—feel better! Areas of expertise include, but are not limited to: • Open/poly relationships. • Gender & Sexual Minorities (LGBTQ). • Self-identified sexual issues and problems. • Porn/sex addiction. • Kink and BDSM dynamics. • Boundary issues and concerns. • Abuse and trauma. • I also have experience working with other mental health related issues, such as: Depression/anxiety/anger, mood swings, drug/alcohol abuse, etc., Office Location, hours and contact information: My office is conveniently located in Maplewood, MN, which is close to Saint Paul and Minneapolis, MN. My hours are flexible and include late afternoon and evening options. Phone and Skype sessions scheduled accordingly. Upon making contact, please leave your name, phone number and a good time to reach you back.

    Fees: $120 per 45-minute increment. See details below.

    I offer individual, couples or group counseling for a variety of mental health issues. My specialty is working with couples and sex therapy. This can include: financial problems, parenting/co-parenting, affairs, boundary setting, sexual problems, ED, PE, Painful intercourse, transitioning, life changes, premarital counseling, etc. More specifically, I have been trained to work with more that one person in therapy. Most counselors have only been trained to work with one person and struggle with how to manage couples or even multiple people in romantic relationships.

    I also understand that poly clients are not always coming to therapy to discuss their romantic relationships. Sometimes, poly clients would like to address problems unrelated to their sex life in an environment that is free from judgment for their lifestyle choices. I can offer this service as well. I work with adults 18+ of any race, ethnicity, religious, or cultural background. I am LGBTQI friendly.

I offer 45 minute sessions, 1.5 hour sessions, or 3 hour sessions. Insurance only covers 45 minute sessions. I do not offer sliding scale, but will offer discounts for people who will to pay in advance for multiple appointments. Ask your therapist for more details.

    Finally, I have a good sense of humor. I run a YouTube channel and podcast called "The About Sex Podcast." It can be found on google play or ITunes. In this podcast, we playfully discuss a variety of sexual health topics. My goal is to educate people about sex in a way that is fun, meaningful, and helpful. For clients unsure if they will work well with me, they can listen to my podcast to get to know me before setting a therapy session.

    Fees: My fee per one hour session is $75.

    I provide a relaxed, open, collaborative and non-judgmental atmosphere. When working with patients, I will cater my approach to your needs, but my natural style is goal-oriented, so I tend to delve into the issues at hand so that you can see improvement in your emotional well-being as quickly as possible. Society tends to define a romantic relationship as a one on one arrangement, but the truth is, that is not always the case.

    Whether your relationship involves two or more people, or whether you have (or are considering) an open relationship, working with a polyamory-aware counselor can help you to define your boundaries as a couple, create agreements for a healthy relationship, cope with jealousy, and explore sexual and romantic relationships that fall outside of traditional concepts of monogamous arrangements. If you are beginning to explore your identity or orientation as polyamorous as an individual, it is advisable to work with a counselor who affirms and recognizes this as such.

    I understand that a loving relationship can take many forms, and my aim when working with clients is at affirming healthy, ethical non-monogamous relationships.

    Ultra-traditional marriage arrangements may be stale and unsatisfying, but at least everybody knows what is expected of them. The male brings home the bacon, the female fries it up in a pan and nobody as a boyfriend or girlfriend. Polyamory may seem to be freespirit, but I believe couples have to make sure they\'re extra clear about rules and expectations, Each couple (or triple or however many in the pod) needs to know what\'s expected, what\'s definitely out, and what to negotiate. I can help couples identify their wants, and their deal-breakers and to respect their lover\'s wants and deal-breakers so they can negotiate agreements that work for their unique needs.

    I'm a member of Bloom Psychotherapy NYC, a group private practice that provides gender and sexuality expansive therapy, in the heart of NYC. I work with adults (individuals, and couples/intimate partnerships including polyamorous and non-monogamous relationships) on any part of gender and/or sexuality exploration. Whether you are just starting your journey of exploration and want extra support, or you are comfortable with your exploration and want a therapist to whom you don't have to educate on basics of your identities, I'm here to help you be your most authentic self - whatever that looks like.

    Finally, I understand that our society is set up in such a way that certain people are valued more than others. Those people that are valued more benefit from certain privileges. I know that systemic racism, oppression, transphobia, sexism, ableism, homophobia, and more are not your fault, but can impact your life and contribute to your mental health. I am well-versed in working with people of color and understand how we often hold more than one identity at any given moment in our lives, and how that impacts how we navigate our worlds.

    The nature of life is to grow. We honor this most fundamental law of nature through our relationships. But without this understanding in relationship situations, we wrongly mistake the impulse to grow as a problem, rooted in past fearful memories, projected into an imagined future. Having the knowledge, tools and courage to own our individual interior reality, is imperative for healthy relationships. Learn how to love and support one another in staying identified with the Self, making peace with and resolving Egoic fears, and consciously create the loving relationships you deserve. I have been a Psychotherapist for ten years and practicing polyamory for five. I provide a free short phone consultation for prospective clients. I also offer Relationship Coaching, Parenting Education and Support, and Introductory Meditation Instruction.

    My name is Damon L. Jacobs, and I help couples and individuals live with fulfillment, joy, fun, and serenity. After 15 years of working with poly/open couples, I have found certain tools and techniques that can help people navigate some of the challenges and difficulties that can accompany these relationships. I now offer sessions and talks in New York that promote information and empowerment for people in these arrangements. Individuals who share love and affection with more than one person are uniquely positioned to experience deeper levels of pleasure and satisfaction in all relationships. But without certain principles they may often flounder and become frustrated and disappointed. These five tools will offer ideas/concrete steps that participants can immediately implement in order to gain more satisfaction and fulfillment in their relationships. Clients learn how to: * Improve rational communication that promotes respect, integrity, and efficacy in interpersonal relationships with multiple partners. * Learn the value of staying present and ways to maintain here-and- now focus. * Explore impact of \"drama\" in increasing frustrations and resentments. * Gain tools for managing and inevitable insecurities that arise in poly relationships. * Maintain responsibility for one\'s own emotional wellness and state of serenity in relationships. I have consistently received positive feedback about the value of these tools from the participants in my talks, as well as my private pratice couples. So please, feel free to email or call if you would like the tools and support for making YOUR relationships happier, healthier, and more fulfilling.

    VortexHealing® - www.vortexhealing.org - works with Divine Healing Energy, Magic, and Divine Consciousness. Vortex Healing is similar to Reiki where divine healing energy is channeled through a person into the receiver. Vortex Healing becomes different however because it also works directly from divine consciousness. Divine Consciousness is the highest healing vibration you can ever experience. It literally heals and transforms the illusion of separation from the Divine. Any disharmony or trauma within your system; physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and even karmic can be healed on its deepest level. During a session you receive very sophisticated VortexHealing® techniques coming from many divine energetic levels and frequencies simultaneously. Frequencies range from the very light and gentle to the tremendously deep and intense. This works with the rule that there are many levels and dimensions to our consciousness. These levels contain the deepest and hardest to reach levels of negative conditioning. VortexHealing® reaches ALL these levels! Release of these blockages promotes the greatest acceleration of change and transformation. A few VortexHealing® sessions equal the amount of healing work that may take months or even years to accomplish with other therapies. I say with the utmost confidence that when you walk out of one of my sessions you will leave a transformed soul. - Does phone consultation

    I believe that each client is the expert on their own life and it's my job to find them the right tools. In my practice the most important task I undertake is empowering my clients. Work, relationships, mental health issues and life in general are extremely difficult to cope with and above all, people need to hear that their feelings about these areas are real. After all, this is what guides people to what's most important in life. In order to do this I provide a trusting, non-judgmental, and empathetic therapeutic relationship.

    I have specialized training and expertise in working with: trans, non-binary, genderqueer, gender fluid and LGBTQ+ youth, adults and parents; people who engage in kink/BDSM, poly/non-monogamy; family/relationship conflicts, trauma, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar, compulsive disorders, substance use issues, problems with sexual functioning, and HIV/AIDS.

    Being trans, queer, kinky, having trauma or mental health issues often means being told you're unlovable or inconvenient; in response, I recognize my clients' strengths and humanity. While I cannot radically change my clients' lives, I teach skills to manage symptoms and navigate identity, oppression and recovery.

    I serve the following populations: Trans, non-binary, genderqueer, gender fluid and LGBTQ+ youth, adults and parents; people who engage in kink/BDSM, poly/non-monogamy; family/relationship conflicts, trauma, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar, compulsive disorders, substance use issues, problems with sexual functioning, and HIV/AIDS.

    I provide strength-based, solution-focused therapy and personal coaching. Rather than emphasizing what is wrong or missing, my Therapy Services focus on mobilizing the unique strengths and resources you already possess to facilitate the changes you want to see in your life. My Personal Coaching Services focus what you want, what is holding you back, and on achieving your desires as quickly and effectively as possible. Although issues from the past may be discussed, coaching is present- and future-focused and addresses these issues only as they relate to your current life and future goals. I view your sexuality and gender identity as an important part of who you are, but only as one part of a complex and layered identity.

    Welcome. You have taken the first steps toward finding a therapist, a very personal and significant decision. I am a licensed Psychotherapist and Board Certified Clinical Sexologist practicing in Midtown, Manhattan as well as on Long Island. I am caring, skilled, and experienced in working with individuals, providing couples therapy and family therapy for those who are in both traditional and non-traditional relationships. Most of us have struggled with dating, relationships and communication at some point. Few of us are formally taught how to create rewarding relationships in which we may lovingly and effectively communicate our preferences and have our desires met. Whether you are gay or straight and are dating, engaged or married, you and your partner may be facing various problems for which there are solutions. My work with individuals, couples and families aims to alleviate distressing symptoms, enhance relationships and encourage self-awareness and growth. If your relationship is suffering, it may be one of the many that can be saved with the proper guidance. If your conflicts cannot be reconciled, therapy can assist you in leaving the relationship on good terms, allowing you both to proceed with healthier and more confident outlooks. - Does Facetime and telephone consultations.

    I am a licensed clinical psychologist in New York State (# 012174-1) and received my doctorate in clinical psychology from Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University, Bronx, NY. My Postdoctoral training in Medical Psychology/AIDS was completed at St. Luke\'s/Roosevelt Hospital Center, NYC. I hold a Master\'s Degree in Music and my interests in psychology, music, gender and sexuality are an integral part of my work. This includes working with GLBT people as well as those involved in polyamory and kink. I have a wide variety of experience as a clinician, teacher, writer and speaker and offer services in several specialty areas. Memberships include the American Psychological Association, the New York State Psychological Association, the Performing Arts Medicine Association, Association for the Study of Dreams, and the American Federation of Musicians, Local 802. As a psychologist and psychotherapist, I believe that psychotherapy is most beneficial when it can address both broad and specific problems and help people find solutions to life\'s conflicts and stressors. Chronic stress and chronic relational conflicts often become obstacles to leading an emotionally healthy and rewarding existence. Ultimately, I believe the goal of therapy is to enable people to make decisions that will allow them to feel most satisfied, productive and in control of their lives. Likewise, learning to cope with life\'s everyday stressors, as well as crises can be an important part of psychotherapeutic work. My approach is tailored to individual needs and focuses on building a collaborative dialogue in which to work towards identified therapeutic goals. This includes symptom reduction (anxiety, depression, self-harm), as well as issues pertaining to gender, sexuality, creative blocks, performance anxiety, infertility and parenting issues, among others.

Our job is to assist people in finding balance so that true self-healing can take place.

But I also think that there are internal mechanisms for healing -- potentials within each of us.

    Address: 1730 SE Taylor St., Porrtland, OR, 97214, us

    Counseling Approach & Philosophy I approach counseling with a holistic assumption of the interconnectedness of body, mind and spirit. I also assume that there is an innate tendency for clients to grow towards health and wholeness. Rather than labeling old patterns a pathologies, I prefer to recognize them as coping strategies developed as a part of the individual’s attempts for safety and health, which may now be obsolete. In my work I focus on helping clients identify both those patterns that may be holding them back and the skills and resources they have available to become more choice-full in their lives. I utilize a mindful, body-centered experiential and relational approach. I also pay attention to the systemic nature of interpersonal interaction in relationships and families. Through attention to present moment experience, comes the discovery of beliefs, thoughts, feelings, memories and images that impact daily life in both positive and negative ways. The awareness and corrective emotional experiences in therapy support building resources and adopting more effective patterns.

    Sometimes in our lives we get surrounded by systems that are supposed to offer us a place of safety, protection and growth become the opposite of these traits. These systems can be organized around our family members, or our beliefs or even just our general social network. Often we don't recognize the results of these systems, but instead find ourselves stuck, anxious, unable or maybe even unwilling to move from the lives we have had to live as a result of these systems.

    I specialize in working with individuals, groups or couples who have emerged from these systems.

    My approach is feedback centered, collaborative, and goal-driven. I place special emphasis on the balance between being creative, in the moment, with the use of a personalized structure that supports the overall experience, creating safety, openness and being seen.

    Phone: (971) 221-2183 Email: Jessica@OffbeatTherapy.com  Website: http://www.offbeattherapy.com/ 
    Fees: I have a sliding scale fee upon request.

    I use a Mindfulness & Cognitive Behavioral approach to helping my clients work through issues that come up in their Non Traditional lifestyles.

    I believe that human nature in its many forms is always evolving and if we are able to harness and lean into this change and learn to grow in healthy ways we can become our best selves. I seek to build a positive therapeutic relationship with all my clients to better comprehend the problems that they may be dealing with in their lives and attempt to assist them in finding healthy resolutions.

    I use an eclectic approach so that I can meet each client where they are on their own personal path of life. I lean heavily on the cognitive-behavioral theory for its distinction between behaviors and thoughts and the narrative theory for its explanation of how we all use stories to interpret our lives.

    I create a personalized working theory for each client to better integrate the most appropriate techniques to achieve the client's goals. I see my role as one of facilitation and guide to assist the client in finding where it is they need to go to fix their own problems. I believe the counselor should encourage the growth of their clients, while providing a safe and confidential space for them to explore the unhealthy thinking and irrational beliefs that underpin their issues.
