11/21/2015 19:50:59Elizabeth BoskeyThe Meeting Point, also possibly private practice (?)Jamaica Plain/Green Street333data not collected generous sliding scale, though this may have changedNoElizabeth is an EXCELLENT resource for trans/nonbinary/queer/gay and poly/kinky topics of all kinds, and she's pretty creative in terms of finding solutions to difficult or complicated problems of a concrete nature. 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 felt like I often was his go-to gender resource when *I* was paying *him*.

I've been working with him over Skype for just over 6 months, and I highly recommend him. He's a former organizer with fabulous politics and does somatics aka body based work. 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.

- Extremely high EQ and interpersonal skills
- Is essentially a "bridge therapist" (she does not see clients long term, typically 1-9 sessions, with the intent of placing them in long term therapy after evaluating them.)
- Need a PCP at a Cambridge Health Alliance facility in order to be seen by her, but can request her if patient does have a PCP there.
- Comes highly recommended by her co-workers, and most people's only complaint is that they are sad she's not a long term therapist.

It's very good (IMO) for depression and trauma, which are her main specialties. I found her extremely warm, open, non-judgmental and "safe", as a person, to do the rather intense internal work that IFS entails; and the experience made me a big fan of it as types of therapy go. 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 am Escort, Dancer, and Dominance affirmative. I specialize in trauma as well as sexual addiction - CSAT in process. Some clinicians believe that trauma always precipitates KAP. Hopefully certain clinicians evolve their understanding. Nonetheless, trauma, if experienced is insidious. And in that, many have used their kink as therapeutic transcendence. Fantasy is life. We all have a public, personal, and private world. Some like their worlds mutually exclusive; never crossing. Some meld their worlds into a uniform reality. Whatever your satisfaction, I am happy to work on your Insightful Direction one step at a time. Your journey, Your direction.

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. Dance/movement therapy aspect is a nice, low key addition to sessions and very helpful; I wish more therapists integrated the body into their work with clients.Lots of narrow steep stairs to get to office, near Harvard This therapist is now in the New York City Area 6/13/19

I am not licensed and cannot provide medical services, but I have extensive personal experience, education, and expertise on a wide variety of issues affecting marginalized populations.

I provide a safe space in which to process, learn about, and heal if necessary from aspects such as: intergenerational and personal trauma, abuse culture and oppression, (a)sexual health, relationship styles (including queerplatonic partnerships and other friendships) and communication (whether monogamous or non-monogamous), help and resources living with invisible illnesses and disability, genetic testing results, safer sex and comprehensive sex ed, harm reduction, emotional literacy, developing accountability plans and teams, culture-specific trans/gender information, healing through art and writing, confronting amatonormative or other isty templates, racially-aware and inclusive kink, and a whole host of other tools and guidance on a wide variety of subjects. I am super comfortable (a rating of 3) with all marginalized populations, inclusive of asexual, intersex, trans, autistic, enby, agender, disabled, undocumented, Two Spirit, aromantic, polyamorous, BlaQueer, and impoverished people. I am super comfortable (a 3) working with traumatized populations as well.
Currently, this location is not wheelchair accessible, but help up and down the stairs is available. It is scent-free, quiet, Black-affirming, and led by a minority of marginalized identities.Yes

4/15/2019 22:28:43IlanaRei Goss CAYA - Come As You Are Behavioral Health Malden Center 3323 - burner culture I am a client of this therapist. practices EMDR as well as talk therapy. She and the other practitioners at CAYA are *very* queer, kink, and non-monogamous friendly.Building 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.

The basics Harvard Pilgrim, Blue Cross, etc.
I don't know
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.
10 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.

Kerry (she/her pronouns) is 29 years-old as of 2019, in case the age of your therapist matters in your consideration. She has a deep background and a high level of competance, experience, and most importantly, she creates a very safe feeling environment to work on hard stuff.
