Orchid Counseling Services (OCS) originated as an effort to combat the stigmas surrounding erotic trade work and marginalized populations such as the LGBTQIA+, kink and alternative relationship communities. These stigmas create barriers to treatment, contribute to a lack of culturally competent resources, infringe upon a person’s bodily autonomy, and contribute to work-related violence.

We operate from a harm reduction model and value personal choice. Our board and employees are passionate about building a stronger community and work towards challenging these stigmas around erotic trade work and marginalized communities.

We support client-focused care. With our help, clients set and achieve their own counseling goals. OCS has partnered with organizations and members from the community to provide services that are inclusive, culturally competent, and equitable.

OCS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
