Richard Wenthen, LMSW holds a Master of Social Work (MSW) from New York University and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Dance from Hofstra University. As a psychotherapist, Richard’s areas of focus include: embodiment and mindfulness, grief and loss, working with the performing arts and the LGBTQ communities, and the intersectionality inherent in personal identity.

Richard utilizes a holistic, person-centered therapeutic approach uniquely built with his perspective as a clinical social worker, mindfulness practitioner, and performer.  He uses the symbolic language that resonates most deeply for each client to help them come into closer relationship with their intuitive selves.  Richard employs an embodiment perspective with the intention of assisting clients in fine tuning their emotions and perceptions.

Richard has a background as a professional dancer and performer working in concert dance, cabaret, musical theatre, and opera dance. He has years of experience with various mindful movement modalities including Continuum Movement, and he is a Reiki level II practitioner. Richard is also a social worker at Lenox Hill Hospital where he provides support to patients and their families. He identifies as an artist and a white, cis, queer, Hispanic man who uses he/him pronouns.
