Cultivating a diverse healing practice in the city that never sleeps

VNC Therapy New York is a private psychotherapy and coaching practice that affirms and empowers historically marginalized communities; placing emphasis on fostering healing spaces for BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ identities. 

 

With over 7 years of counseling experience, I bring a unique clinical lens into therapy- one that is rooted in a queer, sex-positive, multicultural and anti-oppressive identity.  That means you can feel comfortable bringing all of you to session without having to worry about compartmentalizing aspects of who you are. You can expect a therapist who has the capacity to hold multiple truths, respect your beliefs, and challenge your negative patterns of behavior in a supportive way that facilitates lasting, positive change. There is no quick fix here, and our sessions will often be weaving through the tapestry of your life at a pace that feels comfortable to you. 

I do not work in network with any insurances but can provide a superbillThe therapy fee is $300 for a 45-minute session, and session packages featuring modest discounts are available for folx with fluctuating income streams. Our sessions may include:

  • exploring multicultural or third culture identity and its intersections with gender expansiveness, rewriting transgender affirming sexual scripts

  • navigating adult child-of-immigrants relational dynamics, capitalism and living in NY, queer CNM dating, and negotiating boundaries in BDSM/kink spaces

  • improving low self-esteem, relationships with mind-altering substances, holistic health and wellness, relationship with pleasure

  • processing  complex trauma, intergenerational family of origin conflicts,  workplace discrimination

  • moving through guilt, shame, loneliness, fear of failure or inadequacy, grief and loss, life transitions, performance anxiety

What Can You Expect in Therapy?

You can expect to feel surprised at how comfortable you feel in our sessions.

You can expect to laugh, cry, and connect with many other emotions you may not have access to right now. 

You can expect me to hold any guilt or shame you may feel with integrity,  compassion, and benevolence.

You can expect to understand you more. 

You can expect to feel seen and heard.
