Elizabeth “Liz” Newsom, LCSW, is a sexuality/intimacy therapist/educator specializing in working with individuals who identify as kinky and/or consensually non-monogamous (poly, swingers, etc.); those who identify as gender non-conforming and/or have questions about sexuality; as well as those who need assistance with issues such as depression, anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, communication/anger/intimacy issues and much more. In addition to standard individual, family and relationship counseling, Liz is currently expanding her practice to include supervising and training new therapists with her sex positive inclusive therapeutic approach.  

 

For the last few years she has been providing community/professional education regarding working with kinky clients, specifically with the intent of normalizing kink for professionals that work with kinky individuals and educating on the difference between domestic violence/assault and kink. Additionally, she has been providing support and education around parenting, relationship transitions, and co-parenting in the context of consensual non-monogamy.  She is a member of several organizations including American Association of Sexuality Educators, Clinicians and Therapists (AASECT), World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH), Texas Association Against Sexual Assault (TAASA) and a board member with National Coalition of Sexual Freedom (NCSF).
