Online therapist uses nudity in sessions

NEW YORK, March 2 (UPI) -- A New York woman with an interest in psychology says she offers online therapy sessions in which she sheds all her clothes.

Sarah White, 24, a freelance computer programmer and self-described psychology buff, says she has about 30 clients who engage in online therapy sessions while watching her shed her clothing over the course of the hour-long appointments, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

She said her clients include college-age men with sexual issues, older men seeking help with relationship problems and a handful of women who are comforted by her nudity during therapy.

"For men especially, who are less likely than women to go to therapy, it is more interesting, more enticing, more exciting," White said. "It's a more inspiring approach to therapy.

"Freud used free association. I use nakedness."

However, professional psychologists say they are skeptical of White's unlicensed therapy sessions.

"She's using the word therapy here, but I don't consider this therapy," said Diana Kirschner, a New York clinical psychologist. "I consider this interactive soft-core Internet porn."
