I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in the state of New York. I operate from several treatment including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused Therapy and Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). I Received my Masters Degree in Clinical Counseling and chose to obtain an additional specialty in Sexual Orientation. I am able to work with individuals and couples/relationships both straight and LGBTQ as well as monogamous and polyamorous for a wide range of emotional and behavioral concerns. I have extensive experience working with LGBTQ individuals and have the ability to be sensitive and validating to the unique concerns of couples/relationships who have this identity. I am able to build a strong alliance with the people i serve, which helps facilitate better therapy and experience of wellness.
Philosophically I believe that people are not defined by their mental illness or diagnosis and I work hard to help those I work with find the freedom they seek to have the life they want. I have experience working with individuals who suffer from depression, Anxiety and phobias, addiction/substance abuse, bipolar disorders, schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, trauma, personality disorders, recovering from infidelity, sexual functioning concerns (all gender identifications) as well as those considering gender reassignment surgery.

Demire is very understanding. He doesn’t hesitate to stop you if you’re going in the wrong direction. Reassuring, pleasant, professional, and patient yet firm when called for.
Demire is a dedicated counselor who offers succinct advice that’s very helpful in helping my wife and I. I would recommend him highly.
Dr. Coffin is very helpful and he actually takes the time out to understand both of our frustrations and needs. He works with us in every way.
Very knowledgeable and listens to both points of view. Helps us communicate better, and helps us understand more in depth where our issues arise from. Gives us exercises to do before our next session to help us meet in the middle with our communication.
