Rosara Torrisi, LCSW, MEd, CST, PhD, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Plainview
Voted the #1 Sex Therapist on Long Island in 2015 and 2017. I am dedicated to helping people work through life's unique challenges. I am here to assist you in reaching new solutions and working toward your goals. I can assist individuals coping with depression, anxiety, sexual identity or orientation, life skills for young adults, and sexual dysfunction. Couples may be seeking therapy for communication and relationship skills, sexual enrichment, or premarital counseling. I am an LGBT-Affirmative, Kink-Aware, and Poly-Inclusive therapist.
I have considerable experience in sexual dysfunctions, low desire, erectile difficulties, orgasmic dysfunctions, pre-marital counseling, sexual orientation issues, gender identity issues, LGBTQ individuals and families, trauma, chronic illness, and the effects of these on individuals and families of all types.
You can feel confident knowing you're working with an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist. I have experience discussing diverse sexuality topics including aging, pregnancy, male & female sexual dysfunction, cancer, autism and relationships, and alternative relationships. I am the founder and supervising therapist of the Long Island Institute of Sex Therapy.
