One of our therapists, Katie Bloomquist MS, MA, LMFT has been featured in a SELF Magazine article on self care for sex workers.
Katie has written extensively on the minority stress of sex work and sex work stigma. In the SELF article, Katie mentions finding a sex worker affirmative therapist - this is an updated guide for sex workers to start the search process.
Her latest work focuses on training mental health providers on being sex worker-affirmative. She has also recently written the sex worker affirmative therapy model - a free guide for mental health clinicians who work with sex workers. This model has been published in the Journal of Sex and Relationship Therapy.
Katie offers a weekly support group for sex workers in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in addition to individual and relational therapy. Her group is currently full, but if you'd like join please reach out to be added to the wait list.
