My name is Alissa Silverstein (she/her) and I’m a licensed clinical social worker with a virtual private practice, based in Brooklyn. I specialize in working with clients who identify as queer, genderqueer, kinky and/or non-monogamous and my work is informed by personal affiliation with these communities. In our work, the folks I see often address challenges that stem from these non-normative identifications as well as more generalized issues like career anxiety and relationship conflicts.
I work psychodynamically, meaning I’m interested in exploring the “why” behind what’s troubling you; on understanding how your lifetime of experiences impacts your ways of thinking and being in the here and now. My sliding scale rates for individual/partner work are determined based on income (details on my website).
