Our practice specializes in trauma, anxiety, and stress related disorders, and we feel that it’s so important for you to feel safe with your therapist while you work through these issues. All Inner Lakes Therapists are LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC allies, and ND affirming, if not members of these groups ourselves. We all have strong values around social justice, cultural competence, and providing therapy that is empowering and de-stigmatizing. We are body-positive, sex-positive, kink -affirming, and non-judgmental. We are all unique and awesome therapists with lived experience that allow us to be truly empathic with our clients.

I am a supportive and kink -affirming therapist and my goal is to help couples address concerns with their communication, create intimacy and connection, reignite chemistry and yes, provide sex education, because life should be pleasure-filled. I've helped countless clients become comfortable within their own skin: learning how to ask for what they want to get their needs met both in life and the bedroom too. I am an LCSW-R and I specialize in both couples counseling, behavioral intervention and sex therapy. There is nothing taboo or off limits when it comes to therapy: I want you to bring your WHOLE self when meeting with me.

At QuIPP, we are queer, non-binary, depth-oriented, feminist, and trauma-informed. Our therapeutic approaches include CBT, DBT, and psychodynamic and we seek to explore the deep impacts of others (familial, peer, and social) on the minds and spirits of our clients. Our clinical areas of expertise include: gender & sexuality, trauma, transition related support, and poly/kinky & sex positivity. Given that trauma and emotional pain often originate within relationships, we take a relational (and deeply compassionate) approach to therapy.

As a therapist who goes to therapy, I know, firsthand, the importance of finding the right fit. The right therapist is different for each of us and often has little to do with programs completed or certifications earned. Instead, it’s about presence—about feeling safe to show up exactly as we are while being empowered to do what is right and true for us.

My practice focuses on individuals and couples, ranging in age from 18 to elderly. I strive to create a safe environment in which to explore life stressors, patterns of relating with others, and how past experiences impact the present. Areas of professional practice include anxiety/depression, chronic illness including HIV, grief/loss, relationships, sexual issues, separation/divorce, LGBTQ, family planning, career transition, and finances. I have extensive experience with addictions, and work collaboratively with clients, whether the goal is safer substance use, reducing use, or abstinence.

What does sex mean to you? Is it about exploring your body and your imagination, feeling pleasure, or connecting with your partner? Many people I work with feel stuck in their sex lives. Some have found that their sex drives are different or that they don’t want the same things as their partner. They may struggle with orgasms, erections, or pain. Others have had past negative experiences that make pleasure and intimacy difficult. As a certified sex counselor and nurse practitioner, I recognize that sexual expression is a reflection of both physical and mental health and I can provide holistic support for both.

I offer Somatic Experiencing (SE) sessions. Do you struggle with the effects of trauma, stress, neglect or injury or feeling overwhelmed by issues of social justice and the environment? Living with and talking about these things can cause strong reactions in our bodies that deserve their own approach, in addition to psychotherapy. We want to feel comfortable in our skin - to be able to rest, feel a felt sense of belonging and to stand up for ourselves and others in a balanced way. SE helps clients navigate distressing emotions and memories as the related physical sensations gently become more differentiated and take on new meanings.

Do you find yourself feeling stuck in certain feelings? We call emotions "feelings" because they are experienced physically first, and then words are put to what is felt. If talking yourself out of uncomfortable feelings isn't working, you may want to try body-based therapy. All of your emotions are needed to fully express yourself, just as a dancer needs a full range of motion, and an artist needs every color. I help clients to cope with uncomfortable and painful feelings in order to open up to feeling safe experiencing the full range of human emotions.

We often forget we are human. We experience various emotions linked to powerlessness and loss of control. It can be extremely difficult navigating these emotions alone and feeling stuck not knowing what steps to take. Words can become inaccessible but that doesn't last for long. Warm welcome, I'm Pourcher and I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I'm a Bronx, NY, native with a passion for holding space for others.

Let me tell you a secret, therapy is not a one size fits all type of thing! I wish it were as it would make life so much easier, but the fact is every person is different and requires sessions catered to their own unique backgrounds, environments, and goals. As a psychotherapist, my aim is to work with you on getting to wherever you want to be in life, so I invite you to reach out if you are interested in taking a bumpy ride through the road of self-discovery.
