For nearly two decades I have been privileged to work alongside parents, children, adolescents and adults of all ages to understand the deeper meanings of troubling thoughts, feelings and behaviors and other symptoms of distress. My collaborative approach is grounded in enhancing personal growth and the innate human capacities for loving, giving, healing painful traumas, and increasing enjoyment of one’s life. The therapeutic relationships I facilitate are empowering, respectful, caring, and support the freedom to fully express one’s experience, uniqueness, vitality, and engagement of the depth and breadth of human existence.
Clients in my practice gain new awareness regarding their difficulties, increase autonomy and authentic ways of being, experience deeper meaning in their lives, and develop healthier and more effective ways of engaging life challenges.
I endeavor to improve intimate and family relationships, strengthen parent-child/teenager relationships; understand the nature of one’s anxiety and depression; grief, loss, and trauma; improving self-esteem; effectively managing job stress and improving job performance; addressing personal and societal struggles with racial & gender discrimination, gender identity & diversity, and sexual orientation. I also provide compassionate, affirmative therapy with the kink, poly, and pro-sex communities.
Dr. Sid Binks is a clinical psychologist with a focus on forensic neuropsychology who specializes in working with LGBTQ individuals and couples, and with individuals who may be questioning their sexuality or who may be first coming out.
Many people struggle with stepping out sexually in relationships, making commitments, finding a compatible boyfriend/girlfriend. These are just some of the very real, everyday concerns that are commonly brought in for help. Having an empathic, objective professional to help work through the issues underlying these challenges is a choice you can make to create the kinds of change you want for your life.
For more than 15 years now, Sid has been helping LGBT members of the community learn more about who they are and how best to manage their identities in a complicated world. His doctoral work explored the relationship between gay identity formation and mental health issues like self-esteem, anxiety and depression.
Many years of experience working in hospitals and private practice has taught Sid that there is no mental health concern that is too big to be figured out. Because you are unique, your work together will be especially tailored to meet your needs, within the context of a safe and secure environment. Sid draws from both insight-oriented and cognitive behavioral strategies to make the most of your time together.
Complimenting and enhancing his psycotherapy work, Sid also possesses a subspecialty in clinical neuropsychology. Neuropsychological testing can be a valuable tool in increasing the understanding of many different brain-based cognitive illnesses like learning disorders, ADHD and complications from brain damage or disease.
Whether you’re looking for help for yourself or a loved one – to overcome depression or anxiety, cope with loss, improve personal or professional relationships – if you’re ready to achieve personal growth and take control of your life, then call Dr. Sid Binks today. His compassion, dedication and experience are the keys to your success.

Each of us is here with a unique gift to be named, claimed and celebrated. My work helps you discover and release whatever prevents the full expression of that gift, so that you can access your power and joy, which resets an inner compass to your highest destiny
I have 26 years experience working with couples, individuals, families and groups. I have personal and professional experience dealing with the challenges of being gay, lesbian, transgendered, polyamorous, kink, etc. I deeply appreciate the courage it takes to forge a path that is authentic, kind and generative. I believe our sexuality is a precious and essential expression of who we are, and treat it as such in my work.
After 25 years, I masterfully translate spiritual, psychological and shamanic wisdom into practical tools, and I transmit an energy of deep compassion blended with fierce knowing. I believe we are both wounded and are healed in relationship, and I offer you my best in this sacred work.
