Lucy Breidenthal, Intern

Lucy is currently completing her degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Syracuse University. She believes that every body is sacred and deserves to be seen, heard, and known deeply. This is soul work that cannot happen in isolation, but rather is rooted in our relationships to the people we love, the people we struggle with, and the systems that too often tell us who we are and how we should be in the world. Accompanying clients on this journey to discovery is a precious gift. She is particularly passionate about sex therapy at every stage of life, and is a fierce advocate for body diversity, fat acceptance, sex positivity, and affirming therapeutic interventions for all genders, sexualities, and partnership structures. Creating therapeutic environments that are non-judgemental, warm, restorative, adventurous, and nurturing are critical elements of her treatment style. She is oriented in culturally-attuned family systems theory, and especially rooted in cross-cultural, feminist, psychodynamic, narrative, emotionally-focused, cognitive-behavioral, and contextual approaches to therapy. She holds a Master’s in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and a B.A. in International Affairs.
