Background

Welcome
Hello, I am Michael Guichet, a licensed psychotherapist, specializing in sex therapy. I work to help individuals, partners, and couples to connect on the things that are not being talked about. Often people believe they are broken or their desires are shameful and I work to create change and facilitate communication. Let me work with you on changing the patterns in your life.

Specializing in sex therapy means I work with individuals, couples, partners, and families in monogamous, Poly, open, LGBTQ, kink, and BDSM communities. I also work with sexual dysfunction and disorder. It is my passion to work to heal shame and facilitate communication around my client’s identity, relationship orientation, sexual orientation, sexual behavior, and many more aspects of the sexual experience.
Additional thoughts
I am Poly and open knowledgeable, kink and BDSM knowledgeable, LGBT affirming, queer affirming, asexual affirming, and sex worker friendly.
