Lourdes Dolores Follins

Relationship Therapist

I am a Black, queer relationship psychotherapist who focuses on the mental health and well-being of queer, trans, and intersex POC. I use the Gottman Method and EMDR to work with QTIPOC in monogamous relationships, CNM relationships, and kinky relationships. Given the high percentage of people who have experienced trauma and distressing events in their lives, I take a trauma-informed approach to my work. I have an integrative style that takes a sociopolitical view of the world and incorporates elements of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and harm reduction psychotherapy. I have been a licensed clinical social worker for nearly 30 years and have been a Yorùbá-Lukumí priest of Ogun for over 20 years.
