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, chronic pain and illness, complex medical and healthcare experiences, and intersectional identities.
Richard utilizes a holistic, person-centered therapeutic approach uniquely built with his perspective as a clinical social worker, mindfulness practitioner, and performer. He employs an embodiment perspective and works collaboratively to generate a symbolic language that resonates most deeply for each client to help them come into closer relationship with their intuitive selves.
Richard has a background as a professional dancer and performer. 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 is queer, genderqueer (he/him, they/them), and Hispanic/Latinx.
