Nicole Avallone, LCSW

Psychotherapist, LGBTQ Cultural Competency Trainer and Educator |26 Court St, Suite 602, Brooklyn, NY 11242

Talking about sexuality or gender identity can lead to anxiety, frustration, even shame. Things may be “getting better,” but it’s often a long, winding path. As a harm reductionist, I also offer support around alcohol and drug use. Considering change, or working toward non-use? You’ve come to the right place.
