Sex, Intimacy, and Kink Counseling
I’m here…now what?
So, if you’ve requested entrance into this section of my website, there is a good chance that you already know some of the basics and are seeking a counselor who is not just “sex and kink aware” you have are looking for a counselor who knows and understands the kink community. I’d encourage you to read further and see if perhaps you identify and find that you would benefit from sex or kink therapy.
What is Kink?
The term kink often refers to non-traditional, sexual activities and fetishes. Regarding kink you are likely to be on a wide spectrum from those who are just beginning to give thought to experimentation or just begun to experiment to individuals who are long time participants in the kink community. Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum you are seeking out a counselor who won’t assume that this is something you desire to change but encourage, empower you to determine, create and integrate kink into your life in the healthiest manner possible; or if this is not the focus of your counseling needs your desire is to simply have a counselor who you are comfortable speaking if the topic comes up during your sessions.
How can kink counseling help me?
Perhaps you are just starting to explore kink play, and need a safe space to process roles, desires, experiences and communication to others about your interest in kink. As with all couples, communication is key. Thus, communicating with your partner about desires, needs, roles and interest in specific scenes. There could also be a desire to explore what it is about certain types of kink that you are interested in or what it is about your desire for kink play that leads you to feel bad about yourself or guilty. Whatever your situation it is imperative that you feel safe to discuss kink and all aspects of sexuality without judgement but with someone who will speak with you with a knowledge and understanding of the complexities of all aspects of sexuality that you choose to bring to the table.
Whether you are exploring issues directly related to kink or other complexities of your sexuality, click on the link below and submit your request for a free phone consultation. After our initial phone consultation, should you decide to proceed with counseling regarding your sexuality or kink needs the process is exactly the same as other types of counseling. Sexuality and kink therapy is conducted both as a couple as well as individual one-on-one sessions and begins with an initial phone assessment, followed by a face-to-face 60-minute assessment where I gather information that will help you and I as we move forward. The sessions going forward are where the work of challenging our negative thoughts and behaviors and work on replacing those thoughts and behaviors with healthy more positively based direction. Sessions are 45 minutes in length and vary in duration according to a mutual agreement between you as a couple and me as the counselor.
