Strength and Diversity
John Marchini Psychotherapist New York City
Kink-Aware/Knowledgeable Licensed Clinical Social Worker with ten years experience. I have trained under Patrick Carnes as a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist. The knowledge I have in this field is broader and less restrictive than SASH.
I am very accepting knowledgeable and familiar with alternative lifestyles including but not limited to BDSM, Polyamory, swinging, and cross dressing. I see my work in many cases as shame reduction: many come to me with a history of secrecy or self contempt due to the internalization of non-accepting society norms.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have worked with the Fire Department of New York since before 9/11. I'm very experienced with PTSD, Depression, and Anxiety Disorders. Also, I have vast experience helping people overcome addictions.
