Fetishistic Disorder Treatment in NYC
Fetishistic Disorder Counseling
I have a history of helping people with fetishistic disorders, which can promote socially and sexually isolating behavior. Although there is nothing inherently morally wrong with a person finding an inanimate object sexually gratifying, this behavior, in practice, has left many persons life more difficult than it has to be. In the recent past, the sexual focus on such things as feet and hands was called partialism, but that interest and behavior is now considered part of a fetishistic disorder.
An intense sexual attraction to inanimate objects, or to otherwise not seen as sexual body parts, such as feet, hands and hair, can lead to clinically significant distress or social impairment, when that person’s unusual sexual interests are proven incompatible with sexual partners. Therefore, a fetishistic disorder can be seen as an issue when it sabotages the normal sexual and social interactions the person would otherwise have. Sometimes the client with fetishistic disorder is able to be creative, and work hard, to make a fulfilled life that incorporates this behavior, without ever eliminating this thinking and behavior, at other times, it seems this interest and behavior has to be eliminated, or at minimum, better managed, for that person to keep the life that they have. I have helped clients in both scenarios.
