Fast on the heels of the story about Northwestern University's Human Sexuality class that earns high marks for honesty, comes a story that fits perfectly into the old "Only In New York" file - Ladies and gents, meet the Naked Therapist.
Sarah White is 24 years old. She is not a licensed therapist, but she holds "sessions" where people talk to her and she removes her clothes, all of them. According to a story from the NY Daily News, Ms. White's therapy is initially an on-line, web cam chat costing $150 and hour. So, you pay her to sit in front of a camera and remove her clothes. Hard to believe that most professional therapists have a problem with this.
There is a happy ending to this story, but it is mostly for Sarah White. Ms. White claims that she has 30 regular clients who pay her $150/hour on the low end. If she only had four online counseling "sessions" a day, Monday-Friday, Sarah could earn $150,000 a year. That's a rate of pay many professionals would salivate to achieve.
