Kit Lentini (they/all) is a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) in the state of Missouri. They completed the Master of Social Work program at the Brown School at Washington University in St Louis with a concentration in Clinical Mental Health and a specialization in Sexual Health and Education. Kit is currently pursuing sex educator certification through the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT). They have experience working with persons struggling with issues related to depression, anxiety, relationships, life changes, neurodiversity, LGBTQIA+ identity exploration and specific issues, trauma, interpersonal connections, polyamory and non-monogamous relationships, and kink/BDSM relationships.
Kit helps clients discover and tell their own stories, which may naturally also involve deconstructing and discarding unhelpful narratives they’ve accidentally picked up along the way. As a result, clients come into a clearer sense of themselves, and over time, clients begin to lead lives which are more consistent with their own sense of personal values and desires, which in turn leads to even greater depth of self-understanding and exploration. In this way, Kit prioritizes clients’ lived experiences and personhood as a foundation for change, while at the same time highlighting and emphasizing what clients like or love about themselves that they may want to keep! Clients feel healthily challenged and supportively held throughout the therapeutic process.
“Throughout our lives, many of us adopt narratives that don’t align with our actual experiences — they may leave out important details about our families or our make-up, the ways we were hurt, or the ways in which we have succeeded. They don’t do justice to the depth of our experiences, and in fact, when we have been abused or mistreated, the very purpose of these false narratives may be to obscure the truth of who we are and what we’ve been through. In time, we become strangers in our own house. My greatest hope is that our work together will allow you to come home to yourself, for the first time or the first time in a long time, and that the confusion and fog will finally lift as you learn to tell stories that not only align with your real, lived experience, but honor and protect it as the core of who you are.”
