About

Expansive Therapy is a bicoastal therapy practice with locations in New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. We offer online therapy to individuals and couples anywhere in New York State and California State. We have a diverse team of therapists offering a wide variety of modalities and specialties, and we are all LGBTQ+ affirming. Our mission at Expansive Therapy is to create a safe space to heal and grow, to expand the things that are working, and to encourage personal freedom.
We welcome all sexual and gender identities and make LGBTQ affirming space a priority. We recently became the first psychotherapy practice ever to be named in Out Magazine’s Out100. We are a trauma informed practice and all of our therapists had direct clinical supervision with world famous trauma expert Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk (The Body Keeps The Score).
If you’re interested in starting therapy but unclear about insurance, fees, or therapist match, we provide everything you need to get you started. We will check on your mental health benefits (PPO plans only), lay out a payment plan for you, and then set you up with the therapist who best meets your needs.

Expansive Therapy (Gay Affirming)'s Groups

Queer Therapy Group

As humans we yearn for connection, and yet so many of us in the queer community are currently faced with isolation and fears of being our authentic selves. This group is for anyone who self identifies as queer (LGBTQIPA) and wants to build relational resilience. This weekly interpersonal process group will focus on interpersonal themes aimed toward learning new ways to maintain healthy relationships when faced with issues of vulnerability, conflict, comparison, and self-doubt. In order to be eligible for this group, individuals must have basic emotion regulation skills and be open to receiving feedback.
