Amit Arava, LCSW, CST

I have been working in the mental health field since 1993 treating people from all sexual orientations. My focus has been on helping clients resolve issues related to interpersonal relationships, problems with desire, orgasm, sexual pain, erectile dysfunction, sexual addiction, and sexual abuse.

My experience working in mental health spans a wide variety of settings.

At the Veteran Administration Medical Center in West Haven, CT, I worked primarily with physically disabled patients who suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

At the Mid-Fairfield Hospice my focus was on terminally ill patients, and at Bridges, a community mental health facility in Milford, CT, my patients present a broad spectrum of mental disorders.

Licensed as a psychotherapist and certified in sex therapy through the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, I received my B.A. in psychology from the University of Connecticut and my Master’s degree in Social Work from Columbia University.

I was trained and supervised by Dr. Dagmar O’Connor, the first female sex therapist trained by the renowned Masters and Johnson in New York City. She was the Director of the Sex Therapy Clinic, Department of Psychiatry, St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital in New York; Director of Training an Instruction at New York City Medical College OB/GYN sex therapy program; and Lecturer in Psychiatry at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center New York City.
