Mike Cotayo


Hi! I'm Mike Cotayo, and my life's journey has been anything but ordinary. I proudly embrace the roles of psychotherapist, advocate, disabled individual, former sex worker, and a proud bisexual individual. These experiences have uniquely shaped my identity.

As a disabled, bisexual sex and kink-positive psychotherapist, my goal is to foster a nonjudgmental, welcoming space for all clients. I deeply understand the complex interplay between disability, bisexuality, and sexuality. My past as a sex worker informs my sex-positive approach, encouraging open conversations about desires, boundaries, and consensual relationships.

Beyond therapy, I challenge societal norms and tirelessly advocate for others on their journey to healing, happiness and self-empowerment.

I am in-network with Aetna, BlueCross and BlueShield, Cigna and Evernorth, Cigna EAP, Empire BlueCross BlueShield, Medicare, Optum, Oscar Health, Oxford, and United Healthcare UHC | UBH.
