Madeline Nussbaum, LICSW
Clinical Sex Therapy Associate
Therapy was not an easy decision for my husband and me. We were embarrassed and terrified about going, but after meeting with Madeline those fears disappeared. We found the offices very accommodating with scheduling, comfortable, and private. I would say that therapy was a huge success for us. We were able to say things in therapy which we could not express at home. Not only did this help our sex life but it has helped us understand each other in all parts of our marriage.

Madeline’s compassion, deep and incredibly respectful interest in our sessions, humor, commitment, and sharp intelligence are just some of the qualities that make her an exceptional counselor and therapist….Madeline creates a beautifully safe space of validation, understanding, empathy, and insight into sex, partnership, self-understanding, and real-life living….I especially treasure Madeline’s insight, extensive knowledge, and advice on how to navigate the world as a trans individual….It is my earnest wish that every person could have access to such a counselor and therapist in their lives, and I do not exaggerate when I say that I will be benefiting from our work together for the entire course of my life.
