  • Are you a mental health professional with expertise in sexual, gender, and/or relationship expansive communities?
  • Are you looking for a way to make some extra money?
  • Are you looking for a unique way to market your practice and get more clients?

The Affirmative Couch, LLC is hiring authors and presenters!

The presentations are meant to be for intermediate to advanced mental health professionals who are seeking to deepen their understanding of theory, practice, and research in LGBTQIA+, consensual non-monogamous and/or kink psychology. These should be more in-depth and more specific in nature compared to the articles. Presenting for The Affirmative Couch is an effective approach to establish yourself as an expert in your field on a national level.

Out on the Couch is an online magazine offers basic information to mental health professionals about the LGBTQIA+, consensual non-monogamous and kink communities through disseminating accurate information and dispelling myths. The articles are a starting place for therapists with little to no experience in working with these communities. Writing for Out on the Couch is a great way to get your name out there and make a little extra money. 

Writing for our online magazine alongside a personal or professional blog has many benefits to authors, especially early career therapists.  The Affirmative Couch provides support in the form of editing, copy editing and marketing, so you can focus on sharing your expertise. By writing for a magazine you get paid at acceptance instead of having to build a following on a blog before being able to monetize. 

Authors and presenters from the communities about which they are writing or training are strongly encouraged to apply.


You will receive online exposure to other therapists in your field and potential clients. Our experts are featured on social media and our email list.

Your profile will be listed on the Meet Our Experts page.

Authors who publish more than 5 articles and presenters who present more than 3 hours receive a Lifetime Membership, where they get access to current and future courses. 

The Affirmative Couch, LLC is an Equal Opportunity Company and is committed to fostering diversity within its staff. Applications are encouraged from those with diverse backgrounds in regards to race, ethnicity, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, gender identity, gender expression, marital status (including consensual non-monogamy and kink), religious creed, medical/physical/mental condition, sexual orientation, veteran status, and/or age.
