Michael Carter, LICSW
Consulting Clinical Sex Therapy Associate
Though initially hesitant to work with a man on these delicate issues, I followed a trusted recommendation and remain surprised at how much working with a man addresses some of the issues I came in to focus on, perhaps better than working with a woman. Warm, gentle, and smart, Michael responds to the most difficult stories or realizations with the kinds of responses you crave from your closest allies before he carefully invites you think about them in a way that begins to release you from their power.

Michael is not currently providing therapy services on-site at NSTA. He will lead groups and retreats focusing on men’s issues in the future. These retreats will be announced on our Workshops page as they become available.
Michael has worked in a variety of settings and roles which gives him multiple perspectives and understandings to his approach. He is very skilled in putting people at ease. Utilizing creativity and humor, Michael has special expertise in men’s issues, such as erectile and ejaculatory challenges, emotional health in relationships, and concerns around intimacy.
Yoga and mindfulness are central in Michael’s life; he is an avid competitive swimmer, a non-competitive knitter, and a dog lover.
