Charles Silverstein

Human Sexuality

I am the psychologist who made the presentation before the psychiatrists that led to the deletion of homosexuality as a mental disorder. I have followed that up with arguments against the paraphilias as mental disorders (see Silverstein, 2009, Archives of Sexual Behavior, v.38, #1, pages 1-3). I have published eight books on homosexuality, founded the Journal of Homosexuality and two LGBT counseling centers in NYC. I have received many awards during my career including a gold medal for life achievement. In addition to my usual private practice in NYC, I will be conducting tele-therapy for residents in New York State and New Jersey for clients who cannot come into my office, which is now covered by insurance. In-network with Medicare, Aetna, United (UHC).
