Zero X (aka Charlie Nicely) (They/Them)

M.A., M.Ed., MHC-LP
Accepting Clients

Hey there! My name is Zero. I'm an unconventional therapist that provides individually tailored therapy, coaching, and death doula services.

Psychotherapist in New York, NY
Supervised by Nicholas Moran, LMHC-NY #10277

About My Clients

I have experience working with individuals and groups who are working through challenges to include but are not limited to: trauma, adversity & resilience, attachment & relationships, gender & identity, systemic oppression, substance use, phobias, anxiety & depression, existential dilemmas & spiritual formation, racial & ethnic identity exploration, exploring kink & BDSM, death and dying, and exploring ethical non-monogamy.

My Background and Approach

My work focuses on bringing a sense of relational safety and trust to the therapeutic process while making sense of and changing behavioral patterns and compassionately holding historic wounds. The feedback I often get from clients is that they feel understood in ways that they never have before and that I have a keen eye for accurately identifying stuck areas. I've often been referred to as a "working" therapist and a radical therapist due to my deep engagement in therapy which differs from many conventional therapeutic approaches. If I'm honest, I bring the same curiosity, empathy, and commitment your life circumstances as I do to my own. In addition to my therapy and coaching work, I also offer death doula services on a sliding scale to members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My inclination is to invite a spirit of radical acceptance and fierce self-compassion, both as a therapist and in my personal life. As a transgender queer Mexican-American and ethically monogamous person, I strive to bring an inclusive and multicultural spirit to my work. I'm also a former sex worker/dominatrix, which makes me especially skilled at working with sex workers and kink/BDSM practitioners. As all of us have a tendency to get lost in a narrative or storyline, I invite clients to slow down with me and get intimate with their direct experience—the raging emotions in the body, the coming and going of thoughts, the feeling of shaky vulnerability, shame, disappointment, rage, loneliness—honoring it all and creating a safe and nourishing holding space for these lost emotions, perhaps for the first time ever. I offer individual psychotherapy, couples counseling, coaching, and death doula services.
