Dr. Kathryn Stamoulis is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Educational Psychologist based in New York. She is an expert in female adolescent sexual development and sexualized violence. In her role as a counselor, she has worked with both victims of sexual harassment and abuse, as well as perpetrators. She also teaches and has served as an adjunct psychology professor at Hunter College in New York City. She is a former president of the American Psychological Association Society for Media Psychology and currently serves on its board.
Of late, her work has focused on educating the public on sexual grooming and spreading awareness surrounding the psychological manipulation techniques sexual predators employ.
Sexual abuse thrives in a culture of silence, and Kathryn is driven by the knowledge that openly discussing issues around sexuality with young people will reduce the rate of sexualized violence as well as improve their lives in countless other ways.
Kathryn often appears in the media, talking about current events and research surrounding adolescent sexuality. She has consulted on the Jeffrey Epstein case, and was featured in the Netflix docuseries Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich. Additionally, she has been featured in many media outlets including MSNBC, The New York Times, NPR, The BBC and Chicago Tribune.
