Hello! My name is Dr. H. L. Himes, but I go by Lou. I am a gender-queer psychologist who graduated in 2008 from Rosemead School of Psychology, a psychodynamically-oriented doctoral program in Los Angeles. I have taught psychology in the CUNY system and worked clinically at SUNY Stonybrook, Fordham University, and Michigan State University in the college mental health field. My doctoral training included two years of work with Veterans in the VA system and I have been working for the last 6 years in private practice in NYC. I specialize in the intersectionality of identity. This includes many facets of who we are as people: gender, sex, sexuality, class, ethnicity, nationality, culture, religion, spirituality and familial bonds. I am a depth-oriented therapist. Insurances accepted: Aetna, MagnaCare, United Health Care, and BCBS.
