About

Bring it on! I offer uniquely tailored psychotherapy & sex therapy. Please talk about everything & anything, particularly topics that other therapists don't understand or won't hear. I'm said to have a large capacity for care, compassion, & candor while also being a straight-talker. I synthesize depth psychotherapy, sex therapy, coaching, counseling, and more. Sexual diversity, erotic pleasure, and relational intimacy are areas in which I thrive. We'll forge a deep therapeutic alliance and find, confront, address, and overcome the obstacles keeping you from being the very best version of yourself possible.
Expertise: Men, masculinity, and male sexuality, discovering and owning power, alternative relationship paradigms, consensual non-monogamy, erotic power exchange, BDSM, Kink, Fetish, & Leather sexualities. Total confidentiality! Over two decades of experience in mental health, sexuality, and private practice. Licensed in New York and California.
Books: "Sexual Outsiders: Understanding BDSM..." & "Principles & Practice of Sex Therapy (ed. 6). Published in the Journal of Gay and Lesbian Mental Health, Journal of Humanistic Psychology, popular & academic presses, fiction & nonfiction anthologies. Interviewed regularly by GQ, Women's Health, HuffPost, Playboy, Vice, Allure, Glamour, & Men's Health.
