LOS ANGELES — Pineapple Support launched its drop-in support group this week for all adult industry members. The free sessions will be held online every Monday night from 4-5:30 p.m. (PST) and facilitated on a rotating basis by counselors Nicki Line, LMHC, and Jasmine Johnson, LCSW.
“This group can be used as a supplement to individual counseling or on its own to gain insight from peers and licensed professionals,” said Line, a licensed mental health counselor with extensive training in clinical sexology and addiction, as well as experience with in-patient and private practice settings. “It is meant to be a safe place to express issues or problems an individual may be having in their life at the time and to find additional support.”
Johnson ia a licensed clinical therapist with an emphasis on intimacy post-injury and illness, trauma, and kink- and sex-positive parenting.
“In my therapy sessions, we’ll work to solve current problems and improve positive thinking and behavior,” said Johnson. “These groups are going to be the perfect opportunity for any adult performer to receive support, without commitment.”
Leya Tanit, founder of Pineapple Support, emphasized the flexible nature of the group.
“This is a drop-in group so there is not a requirement to stay for a certain number of weeks or sessions, and the group members may change from week to week,” Tanit said. “This group is open to all online adult industry professionals, so we invite anyone that wants to receive support in a safe space.”
