I met with her when she was interning at the Meeting Point last spring, and at that point the matters under discussion were largely pragmatic ones, which she was instrumental in helping me navigate. She's full of creative solutions to weird problems, and especially knows a lot about interpersonal dynamics. She can shed a lot of compassionate but realistic light on power imbalances and tacit dissatisfactions between/among partners. She's personable, interesting, knowledgeable, and unconditionally accepting. She's got another website (the first result of her name on google) that outlines the other work she's done, much of which informs her knowledge base and her approach to being a therapist. In terms of what I don't know about her: idk about the degree to which she's practiced in trauma-focused therapies, and I don't know about her background working with people of color.

Her specialty is CPTSD and I've been having a lot of success with her in actually digging into it all. I like NEVER would make this kind of recommendation usually but she's just been super helpful. She has not studied but has experience with Internal Family Systems as well which I have found extremely helpful. I believe she is a Buddhist, and is good for people whose life involves some amount of spirituality as she would never judge that. I am not clear on her overall familiarity with polyamory, but I am out to her as polyamorous and it was completely not a big deal to her. Not aware of how familiar she is with kink although I may find out.... She is literally the best therapist I have ever had and I think that she's highly adaptable to whatever people have going on. She is also

He minimizes femme invisibility, talks about himself a lot to the point where the client then has to try to redirect the conversation back to themself, has made messed-up assumptions about trans people (like assuming a cis person would be sad about their trans partner's genitals during sex because the person is trans and not cis), and exhibits a #notallmen attitude at times (like when talking about being traumatized by mass shootings) because he's so obsessed with validating masculinity.

I was skeptical about what was possible given that it had to be Skype work because he's physically based in Vermont but he's clearly figure out how to adapt therapy to a distance model, and I can't believe how many tools I've gained and how much my life has changed since starting to work with him. Highly, highly recommended, particularly for queers looking to heal trauma.

Also, she has personal experience with mentally-ill family members, which can be SUPER helpful if that's a thing you deal with as well.

I gave her a 2 because she doesn't seem to be super versed in poly culture, but it's not a problem for me. Seems to be fine with pansexuality and my relationships with trans/GQ people. I haven't brought up much in the way of kink yet. Did seem a bit clueless about sex work, but nonjudgemental beyond "safety concerns." I'm white, so can't comment on POC friendliness. Does seem to be burner culture informed but isn't making assumptions. So far we're meshing well on discussions of boundaries and drug use.

4/15/2019 22:28:43IlanaRei Goss CAYA - Come As You Are Behavioral Health Malden Center, Malden 3323 - burner culture client provided info itself is what appears to be ADA compliant. Ramp to get up to building, automated doors with press buttons. CAYA's office is on the first floor. If I recall correctly, the office has ADA compliant door handles, and has no thresholds or stairs. I can't speak from personal experience with mobility devices, so I'm unsure how accessible the individual therapy offices or the (single stall) bathroom within CAYA are. She practices EMDR as well as talk therapy. She and the other practitioners at CAYA are *very* queer, kink, and non-monogamous friendly.

She is particularly amazing with trauma work. She is actively poly herself. She is very much 100% zero judgement. She also runs cuddle parties with one of her partners in a unique special space in the 3rd floor of her home. She does wonderful couples therapy as well. She currently charges 140/hr and does not accept insurance of any kind, but is worth every dime. I highly recommend her to anyone who can afford her.

6/13/2019 21:05:54Shannon McCarthyThe Meeting PointJamaica Plain, Boston 23233client provided info basics Harvard Pilgrim, Blue Cross, etc.I don't know10 minute walk from Green St. Station. Parking is on street only. There is a ramp for person's with a disability though the front entrance is a bit tight for wheeled mobility devices.There are multiple therapists at this location, and they are specifically LGBT focused. If you went to Pride you likely saw them there. Shannon was not well versed in poly when I met her, but she was open minded, listened, asked questions to clarify, and ultimately helped me navigate poly as well as my own life. I was a patient of hers for over 5 years, and wish I was still local enough to see her.
