The Intersection of Sex Work and Drug Use: Overlapping Communities

The Current Situation

As of January 2016, 34 states and the District of Columbia have enacted Good Samaritan Laws.

Non-judgmental counseling, Alessandra Lanti

Alessandra Lanti, LPC Intern, MA, CPCI (verified listing in Psychology Today)

I am more specifically trained in working and sharing meaningful time with persons who work in the sex industry, who practice a wide range of alternative romantic/sexual lifestyles, and with sex and gender diverse persons and communities.

I am particularly sympathetic to issues of stigma and discrimination, aging, life transitions and physical pain associated with a lifetime of dancing and performing that often afflicts performers and entertainers. I come from a sex-positive, non-judgmental, empowerment-focused approach that celebrates sexual/romantic and cultural diversity.

My practice supports authentic living. I hope to join with persons and offer my understanding of where they are. Such genuine contact encourages awareness of possibilities that otherwise remain just out of reach. Relationship is central; foundations of healthy relationships include trust, respect, honesty and risk-taking. Persons I sit with commonly say I am supportive and challenging, non-judgmental and safe. Persons with previous experience in therapy say that our play together is “different” than their other therapy relationships, perhaps because I fundamentally believe persons are good and have inherent power to grow and change.
