Kink/BDSM Philosophy

Therapist Kelley Everyone deserves to have good counseling from someone who will focus on the therapeutic issues you bring in, not someone who immediately concludes that your kink is the source of your problems. My philosophical bias when it comes to BDSM* is safe, sane, and consensual. I have some familiarity with a number of different kinks, and I will do the research so you don’t need to spend our time educating me on the generalities. I believe everyone deserves to have the sex life that fits best for their wants and needs, and that anything two (or more) consenting adults do together is a beautiful thing that enriches the participants and the world around them. I believe that kinky behavior in the bedroom is perfectly normal and not a basis for pathology.

Every client honors me by sharing with me a part of their life story. Every client is brave by being willing to engage in therapy, and facing the challenges of their life through our work together.
