Hello! My name is Dr. H. L. Himes, but I go by Lou. I am a gender-queer psychologist who works from a queer-affirming, psychodynamically-oriented, social-justice-informed model. I have been working in private practice in NYC since 2011 and have recently started a group practice aimed at providing competent and affirming services to the queer communities. I am a depth-oriented therapist and have experience working with trauma. Insurances accepted in-network: Aetna. However, please give us a call if you have or are uncertain about having out-of-network benefits. Even if your deductible is high, we will work with you to lower your payments to a reasonable level. We also provide low-fee services to those seeking transition-related mental health services.
