+ What are MyTherapist New York's specialities?

MyTherapist New York has specialized in sex therapy and relationship counseling under certified clinical sexologist and certified sex therapist, Dr. Michael DeMarco. Our therapists are chosen for their interest not only in practical individual psychotherapy, but also their passion for happy relationships and healthy sexual and gender expression.

+ Why should I choose MyTherapist New York?

Dr. DeMarco has trained and supervised therapists wishing to establish themselves in the fields of counseling and sex therapy since 2006. During this time, we have honed our practice to offer a practical, modern, effective approach to counseling by embracing the novel approach that clients should have a say in how therapy is progressing or not.

We want to know that what we're doing is working. And if a therapist can't show that what they're doing is making an actual difference, then what are they doing?
