virtual therapy for people in New York

Julia Koerwer, LMSW


The basics


I received my Master's in Social Work from Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College in 2019, and currently hold an LMSW in NY state. I have also completed course work at the California Institute of Integral Studies in pursuit of a sex therapy certification.


I work with many clients struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and OCD. I primarily use Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, and I pull from modalities including Mentalization Based Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy in my other work.


My primary goal as a therapist has always been to fill the need for more therapists who are competent in serving folks who are LGBTQIA+, non-monogamous, kinky, or engaged in sex work.

Happy pride month! I always love looking at all the flags, and this graphic includes some that are new to me, so I'm excited to look them up and continue my queer education.

I'm listening to Yves Tong Nguyen of @redcanarysong (a grassroots collective of Asian sex workers and allies) talk about the terrorism in Atlanta this week. I've been relying heavily on Red Canary Song's Twitter feed to stay informed and appreciate so much knowing of an organization that I can go to to hear Asian SW voices, which have felt so absent in the other media I've consumed this week.
