Hi, my name is Emma Lavetter-Keidan (they/them) and my goal as a therapist is to help clients find ways of relating to themselves and the world that feel freeing. 


As people, we naturally develop ideas of how life “should” look, including our relationships, our ability to navigate systems, and even our own mental health symptoms, (i.e. “I should be past this by now,” or “I should be more present during sex.”) I see my role as a therapist as one that can help you find ways of moving through the world that feel right to you. Together we can work on identifying  your wants and needs, and finding ways to support your identities whether you’re queer, kinky, poly, a sex worker, or just a person finding ways of relating that feel authentic.


I prioritize fostering a personal connection with my clients, and humor is welcome in sessions. My primary modalities are cognitive behavioral therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy. These both aim to help us look at our patterns and move in new directions, as well as recognize and accept our feelings. 


I received my Master’s of Social Work from Washington University in St. Louis with specialties in clinical mental health and sexual health and education. My experience as a therapist has been with sex workers, sexual abuse survivors, and those experiencing trauma.


I look forward to hearing from you!

“We have been raised to fear the yes
within ourselves, our deepest cravings.
For the demands of our released expectations
lead us inevitably into actions
which will help bring our lives
into accordance with our needs,
our knowledge, our desires.”

― Audre Lorde, 
Uses of the Erotic: The Erotic as Power
