About Bauer

Bauer was trained at Columbia University for my Masters in Social Work, and previously earned a Bachelors in Social Work from NYU. In her post-graduate experince she attended the National Institute for Psychotherapies in their One Year Program. She is on track to complete the Dual Program at The Ackerman Institute for Family Therapy in May of 2023.

Her work is focused on competencies with the queer, LGBT, asexual, trans/non-binary, poly-amorous, ethically non-monogamous, relationship anarchy, and relationship communism communities, in a sex and body positive environment.

She has been an active organizer in the asexual community, founding Aces NYC in 2012. She gives workshops, conducts research, contributes to academic books, and has worked with many people on understanding their identities. In the broader queer community, she has had years working with trans & non-binary folks personally and professionally, through transitions, medical & legal frustrations, and differentiating feelings about sexuality and gender. As a white therapist, she promises to do the work of educating herself on communities of color outside of our sessions, and makes the same promise to anyone who is part of a community she is less familiar with.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under the No Surprises Act, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose or a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
