Upcoming Events

Open House and Office-Warming at The Pincus Center
2873 Duke Street, Alexandria, VA 22314
Friday, January 21st, 2021
FREE, RSVP Requested

Brighten up the long dark days of January with a festive and fun happy hour and office-warming at our brand-new space in Alexandria, VA!

We’ve been going through some big transitions here at the practice over the past several months, and we’re ready to celebrate all these wonderful changes. First, we’ve re-branded to become The Pincus Center for Inclusive Treatment and Education. We’ve brought on new therapists to continue offering the LGBTQIA+-informed, polyamory/ENM-inclusive counseling and sex therapy for which we’re known– but we’ve also expanded our services to include coaching, workshops and classes, support groups, and online resources.

And, of course, we’ve opened the new Duke Street office, which gives us the space we need to start hosting in-person group events with COVID precautions in place.

You’re invited to join us after work on January 21st to kick off your weekend at our open house to “officially” open the new office. Drop by just to say hi or for the whole event– we’re glad to see you however long you stay. We’ll have light refreshments and good company that includes both our colleagues in the therapy world as well as related fields like coaching, bodywork, and sex education, and our friends who are simply excited about what we do. See our Eventbrite invite for full details, or share with friends and colleagues on Facebook.

Book Tamara to speak

Polyamory is the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate partner.

As a certified sex therapist and psychotherapist, who has also made her own journey through the sexual exploration and acceptance, I am able to bring a unique perspective…

For a lay audience, I have offered classes called “Ask the Sex Therapist” where people can find out what they need to know about sexual functioning, BDSM, Sexual Orientation gender identity and ethical non-monogamy.

I have spoken at such events as the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit, AASECT, Greater Washington Society for Clinical Social Work, SSSS, Catalyst Con, Lotus Blooms and the University of Maryland

In the past I have given talks on: How to be a poly friendly therapist Ethics in psychotherapy

Coming out as poly, a clinicians perspective

Coming out as poly can move the polyamory movement forward and create more acceptance in the greater culture, however it comes with a variety of risks. This interactive workshop will give us the opportunity to learn from each other about various factors impacting coming out experiences including cultural and religious factors as well as personal identity with regards to race, gender and sexual orientation. We will also discuss strategies we can use to make coming out as poly a smoother experience. We will discuss whether and how to come out in a variety of settings analyzing advantages and disadvantages along the way. The presenter will then share some of the expertise she has gleaned working with clients and others in the community around their coming out process as well as on a book about coming out as poly. This will include some of her own personal coming out experiences.
