LGBTQ and kink-friendly. Reachable at all times. Offers sliding scale.
She's in her late 60s, so is somewhat out of the loop regarding technology/social media.
She only accepts out-of-network. However, she offers sliding scale.

Ben is wonderfully warm, empathetic and creates a safe space to discuss emotions around social justice/political issues that feel overwhelming, hopeless, depressing and anxiety-inducing. He is very LQBTQ-friendly and is also an artist -- his openness to sharing about his personal journey creates a 2-way vulnerability that helped me build trust.
Ben's fee is around $200/session -- but he is open to being flexible about biweekly meetings. I don't remember it being particularly difficult to make an appointment.

His private practice is called "The Center for Men's Excellence," and he is research-based. His practice specializes in couples work and cisgender men who are having issues with adjustment, depression, and male postpartum depression.
Expensive if out of pocket: $175 per 45 minute session.
He's brilliant, evidence-based, and looks like Dougie Houser.

Nothing. She is truly a gift.

Really amazing queer woman of color therapist who works holistically and understands queerness, race, social justice work. Focuses on somatics (integration of mind and body in recovering from trauma) and brings a lot of spirituality and healing to the work.
Does not take insurance, but does negotiate sliding scale on a case by case basis.

|Manhattan, NYC||10011 .||212-627-8747||Woman||Checked, not there|
She has been an activist with Raging Grannies (and other groups--anti-war). We talk about social justice, and march together. She is an ally on my decades-long attempt to fund a free high school for adults in Nicaragua (58% women grads).
Nothing. Very approachable, intersectional, great manner.
She has a quiet demeanor, calm, reassuring--she has great intuitions, kindness.

She doesn't have a personal site but let this be a reference: http://www.slate.com/articles/double_x/doublex/2016/10/donald_trump_is_a_human_trigger.html
Kris is a LCSW with a private practice, works with a few nonprofits and teaches narrative medicine at Columbia. She has a focus on trauma and is very social justice oriented. We have addressed activism, sexism and racism at work, domestic violence, sexual assault, sex work, economic insecurity, death, depression, etc. I have worked with her for five years, and we talk about activism a lot - she is very engaged and thoughtful of the struggle between being politically engaged and staying safe and alive. She also has a sense of humor, which is really great.
She is white and cis, which could be a barrier to some folks
She offers sliding scale services and worked with me during a period during which I was unemployed. She has a complex understanding of suicidal ideations and won't automatically do a psychiatric hold.
