Alexys Gonzalez

LMHCA, ATR-P, RYT 200 (they/them) Art Therapist, Sex Therapist & Sexuality Educator

I believe that healing exists on a spectrum, and I acknowledge the unique experiences as well as identities that each person holds. My approach to therapy is integrative and intersectional – together, we create an experience best suited for your unique healing. My worldview and theoretical approaches are rooted in an anti-oppressive framework that is trauma-informed, creative, and holistic. I’m passionate about working with all aspects of sex, sexuality, identity, relationships, and intimacy, especially non-monogamy, kink/ BDSM, sexual pain/dysfunction, trauma, shame/guilt, dissociation, and LGBTQIA2+ identities and orientations.

What You Can Expect

My multi-disciplinary approach to sex therapy is influenced by my training in art therapy, sex education, painting, philosophy, and yoga. As a queer, mixed-race (SE Asian & Hispanic), neurodivergent (ADHD), polyamorous, kinky, nonbinary femme, I understand the benefits of holding these identities as well as the complexities and impact of marginalization. I offer a unique and individualized approach informed by Attachment Theory, Polyvagal Theory, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Expressive Arts Therapy, and Somatic Psychology. I hold the belief that engaging in creative self-expression is healing in itself, and I often invite clients to engage in art-making, movement, music, tarot cards, astrology, journaling, breathwork, meditation, and reflections. As my client, you can expect to increase self-awareness, identify and deconstruct patterns, develop new coping skills, process overwhelming experiences and emotions, and better understand the behaviors, patterns, and symptoms that are most impactful to your life.

My Story

Growing up, I felt like I was floating through my life, unaware of who I was or what I believed in. Being the second-born twin and middle child of three, I often felt unseen and pressured to be a different person for each member of my family. My own healing and identity exploration is what inspired me to move from Connecticut to Seattle and pursue a path that allowed me to assist others to heal and help themselves. Just as I found healing through accepting and engaging in my creative identity, I found healing in honoring and acknowledging my sexual identity as well.
