I am a queer-identified, LGBTQ/kink/CNM knowledgeable and affirmative therapist in practice for 35 years. My Jersey City office is one PATH stop from Manhattan. I founded the Institute for Personal Growth, a psychotherapy practice in NJ focused on the LGBTQ community, but I now maintain a small private practice as well as write, speak, and train on ‘queer’ issues. Currently my work is concentrated on the transgender and kink communities as well as people involved in all sorts of consensual non monogamy. I’ve published a great deal on these issues, and I’m part of a group of professionals developing guidelines for working with kinky clients. I’m known for being compassionate but also for being direct and to the point – I get to the heart of the matter quickly, bluntly, but lovingly.
