Q: How do I schedule a session?
To schedule a session, you need to pay first. Click here to pay for a session.
Q: What happens once I pay?
I will contact you within 48 hours and we will work together to schedule a session time. I have morning, afternoon and evening hours available on weekdays and weekends.
Q: How does a session work?
Different clients require/desire different things, but generally you decide if you’d like to start with a text chat and a one-way cam (you can see me but I can’t see you) or a voice chat and two-way cam (we can both see and hear each other).
Q: Do I need special software or a camera?
No. When I contact you I’ll give you the particulars as to how you will access the session on your computer, but no special software or camera is needed. All you need is a high speed Internet connection.
Q: How long are the sessions?
Q: What happens during the sessions?
You and I talk about whatever you want to talk about, and, should you wish it, I (and/or you) get naked in the course of that conversation.
Q: Am I allowed to make special requests?
Yes. If you want me to wear something special, ask me in advance and it can be arranged. If you want me to undress in a certain way, that can also be happen. And if you want to see me from a certain angle, or you want me to do or say something specific, simply ask. I do have my limits and only do what I consider to be therapeutically relevant to your progress, but I am also very open minded
Q: How far out do you book?
That really depends on how busy I am! Sometimes it’s possible to get a session in the next few days and sometimes it takes a couple weeks. If you desire it and I’m available, I can do a rush session for an additional fee. I’ll tell you more about this once you book your first session.
Q: What if I can’t meet during the times you’re available?
If none of my available times work for you, I can work outside my schedule, though there is an additional fee for this. I will discuss that fee with you should the need arise, but it usually doesn’t.
Q: Do you get fully naked?
Yes, if you wish it.
Q: How explicit will you get?
That depends on what I consider therapeutically relevant.
Q: Can I get naked during my session?
Q: Can I masturbate during my session?
Q: Do you do couples therapy and what is the rate?
I am happy to talk with couples. Should you be interested in that, contact me and inquire about couples rates. They are usually just a bit higher than individual rates.
Q: Do you accept health insurance plans?
Currently no, but maybe some day!
Q: What is your cancellation policy?
I ask that you give me 72 hours notification if you need to cancel a scheduled appointment in order to reschedule. If you give me less than 72 hours notice, you can reschedule for a small additional fee.
Q: What is your return policy?
You have 10 days after a purchase to request a refund. Refunds may not be made after a Naked Therapy session has been scheduled (you have settled on an appointment time with me and received an “Appointment Confirmation” email) or a session has happened. You have a year from the date you made your payment to schedule your appointment.
Q: What happens if I miss a session?
If you miss your scheduled consultation time I reserve the right to consider it a missed and forfeited session. However, in some cases I will reschedule a missed session (but usually only once!)
Q: Can I get a refund after a session if I didn’t like it?
Q: Do you accept male and female clients?
Q: What are your credentials?
First off, I am not a licensed psycho-therapist. In fact, I can’t be licensed because my techniques are considered unethical by state licensure boards. However, I have studied psychology, human sexuality, and social biology, and I have helped hundreds of people, many of whom say that Naked Therapy has made a huge difference in their lives. Further, I consider myself highly skilled at talking, listening, and counseling while also being arousing
Q: I still don’t get it – why the naked?
Naked makes your therapeutic interaction with me completely different from a traditional therapeutic experience. Through my being scantily clothed or stripping or being fully naked, you have a different experience. You (can) feel aroused, inhibited, afraid, curious, intimate – any number of things. You can also get naked yourself. And these feelings/experiences change the therapeutic picture. They change how you feel, what we talk about, how we relate. They change your entire therapeutic experience, so they change the therapeutic outcome.
Q: Nothing’s wrong with me, so why should I seek therapy?
That’s what’s special about Naked Therapy (other than the nakedness). There doesn’t have to be anything “wrong” with you. In fact, we’d go one step further and say that the fact that you’re even considering Naked Therapy proves that you are open-minded, adventurous, and thoughtful! Why seek Naked Therapy, then? Because Naked Therapy will help you gain power through arousal. With your Naked Therapist you investigate who you are and figure out how you can bring more beauty, excitement, and power to your life.
Q: How am I supposed to concentrate when you’re taking off your clothes?
This is my favorite question because it cuts to the heart of what Naked Therapy is trying to address…or, as it were, undress …If you’ll allow me a bit of grandstanding, in my opinion, the 21st century human is living a schizophrenic existence that is rooted in traditional therapy and exacerbated by the Internet. One part of his life is rational, cold, and concealed. The other part is sexual, raw, and open. In the first part, he judges and talks and thinks about himself and his world in a neutered, socially-acceptable fashion. In the second part, he lets down his guard and looks at porn, has sex, goes wild. Traditional therapy uses the first part (the cold and rational and concealed) to release and conquer the second part (the sexual, raw and open). Naked Therapy takes the opposite approach. Naked Therapy indulges in and explores the second part in an attempt to excite and engage the first part. Both traditional therapy and Naked Therapy have the goal of bridging these two parts, but only Naked Therapy really succeeds because it goes at it from the right direction. It is able to bring the two parts together because it accepts both parts on their own terms, in a positive way, and doesn’t value one over the other.
Q: How is this different from sex camming?
As my clients will tell you, it’s not only far from it, it’s far better. While I generally get naked in my sessions, it’s done in a way that fits into the progress of the client. Sometimes I use nakedness in the same way a traditional therapist might use techniques like dream analysis, free association, or neuro-cognitive reprogramming. Other times we get naked as part of an attempt to help open the client up to talking about fantasies, sexual or relationship issues, or confidence concerns. And sometimes we just get naked because we know it will help the client feel better in the moment. But no matter the reason for getting naked, it occurs in a way that is very different and far more engaging and arousing than anything a “cam girl” might do. Sex workers are there to give their clients a pleasurable experience. And while I’m happy to provide a pleasurable experience to my clients, I am also there to help my clients gain insights that can be hard to come to, challenging, and often uncomfortable. That’s why it’s therapy, and that’s why it’s ultimately a more fulfilling experience than sex camming.
Q: I don’t get it. How can you help someone with a porn addiction?
Porn addiction emerges because men come to view women as sex objects, not as real people. What’s the difference? A sex object is simply there to gratify, while a real person is a more complex experience. Ultimately, having sexual relations with a real person can and should be more gratifying than a sex object. That’s where Naked Therapy comes in. In your Naked Therapy session with me, I can be both sex object and real person because you might be aroused by me as a sex object, but you are discussing deep, personal, sometimes difficult issues with me as a real person. Through this process your addiction to the one-way “sex object arousal experience” begins to dissolve and you open your mind to the two-way sexual experiences you can have in your real life.
Q: Is there literature on Naked Therapy?
The only literature currently on Naked Therapy is on this site and my blog. I hope to have academic papers and further literature published soon!
Q: Are you saying traditional therapy is ineffective?
Not at all. The type of therapy that works best for a client depends on the client.
Q: Why have you trademarked Naked Therapy and The Naked Therapist?
Trademarks are meant to protect the public so they are aware of the source and can be assured of quality control. As the original Naked Therapy practice, I feel it is important that those practicing Naked Therapy are knowledgeable and skilled in the art of Naked Therapy, which is why I have trademarked these two phrases. So, if you are interested in being a Naked Therapist yourself, please contact me for details.
Q: What is the fine print that I agree to when I schedule a session?
For privacy reasons, NO recording of the sessions may be made (video, photo, or text) by you or anyone else. I keep a full recording of the session and if it appears in any form of media, I will know who has propagated it, and I will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.
Further, by entering a therapeutic session with me you agree that only you are responsible for the actions you take as a result of what happens in your session(s). You agree that I am not responsible for the decisions you make and/or the actions you take and you thereby release me from any and all liability of any kind, directly or indirectly related to anything that happens in your therapeutic session(s).
Your confidentiality is of the utmost importance to me. Therefore, I will never reveal your identity or contact information to anyone. I may use quotes from our emails or sessions in studies or documents or web pages having to do with Naked Therapy, but your anonymity will always be completely preserved and no information will ever be released that could in any way be used to identify you.
I like to have fun. But these are professional services. If I feel you are out of line, acting disrespectfully or rudely towards me, I will warn you that if you continue that behavior I will terminate the session. And if you don’t stop that behavior, I will terminate the session and your payment will not be refunded.
By entering a Naked Therapy session you swear that you are at least 18 years old.
Current terms will be sent at time of appointment scheduling.
