Sex Therapists in New York

Sex therapists are trained therapists who treat concerns around sex and sexual satisfaction from a psychological perspective, including addressing any mental health conditions that may relate to or arise from these concerns. Many sex therapists receive trainng from the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT); however, there is no specific licensure required to provide sex therapy.

Sex therapy can help with issues such as sexuality, sex-related issues among couples, sexual trauma, sex or porn addiction, erectile dysfunction, and kink/poly/BDS relationship issues. Each sex therapist specializes in a different type of sex therapy, so it’s important to find a therapist who has expertise in your presenting concern.

Psychotherapy is your time to talk. When we grow and change, we naturally want to reflect on that journey. When we struggle or have set-backs, having someone to listen to our stories can help us develop a new perspective. When we find a way to acknowledge and accept our emotional experience, we often discover a deeper sense of meaning and move forward. I have great respect for my clients and want to help you try to achieve a more satisfying and fulfilling life. Take this time to truly get to know yourself.

Someone who you can ask about caring for your aging parent with dementia to helping you explore your kinkiest fetish? This is a participatory integrative care practice for those who value results.

Thank you for your interest in my practice! My name is Desirée Patrice and I’m a licensed psychotherapist, Certified Family & Couples therapist and Certified Integrative Health coach based in downtown Manhattan.

I’m a collaborative therapist who is interested in your goals and concerns and meeting you where you are. I start by taking an in-depth background of your personal development and mental health history, which I see as my roadmap to help you soothe and understand your mindset right now, as well the keys to unlocking the intricacies that describe you life and family system history. I want your daily life to improve as much as it can, but I want to help you get to the granular level and walk away with insights about your life.

With me, you will enter an environment that’s both safe and challenging. First and foremost, I am interested in getting to know who you are and what is meaningful to you. I have the knowledge and intuition to ask those helpful questions to go deeper, as well as the restraint to sit back and let you have the space to be you. If my approach seems to resonate with you, please reach out for a consultation to determine if we are a good fit to begin working together.

I work with people struggling with shame - shame about what they want, what they need, what they do. I don't judge. I understand the power that desire exerts over us, and I understand how painful it can be when that comes into conflict with who we want to be, with how we want to live our lives.

Patients are often uncertain what to expect from the process of therapy. They are not sure of what to expect of the therapist or even if the therapist has any expectations of them.

I have found most patients approach therapy with the notion that each person will describe their distress and somehow the therapist will assist them to create happier, more functional, relationships. They expect to learn some new or better skills.

First, I do have some expectations of you. I am not neutral. I have evolved principles and concepts that I believe give us the greatest chance for success.

The hardest part of therapy is accepting you will need to improve your response to a problem (how you think about it, feel about it, or what to do about it). Very few people want to focus on improving their response. It’s more common to build a strong case for why others should do the improving.

Your job is to create your own individual objectives for being in therapy. Like a good coach, my job is to help you reach them. I have many, many tools to help you become a more effective person – they work best when you are clear about how you aspire to be.

The major aim of therapy is increasing your knowledge about yourself and your patterns of interacting in with others. Therapy becomes effective as you apply new knowledge to break ineffective patterns and develop better ones.
