Dr. Bridget M. Finn
Founder and President, Capital Region Center for Sexual Health, LLC
"I am a proud member of the Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood Women’s Leadership Circle. Like millions of women around the globe, I was horrified by the results of the 2016 Presidential election and I knew that Planned Parenthood, it’s invaluable sexual health services, and its patients were going to be under attack in the most egregious manner. I immediately felt a responsibility to the millions of women who rely on the outstanding, accessible, and judgement-free sexual health care they receive with Planned Parenthood. The Women’s Leadership Circle provides me the way to make a meaningful contribution to the organization, and its services and patients, through financial support and public advocacy.
I am passionately committed to the work of Planned Parenthood. I too have relied upon PP for my sexual health care needs. The care I received has influenced me personally, professionally, and politically. At the age of 17, I had an unwanted pregnancy. I chose to terminate my pregnancy and Planned Parenthood helped me navigate that decision with great care, sensitivity, and professionalism. I will always be grateful that I had access to safe, legal abortion services. That was 36 years ago. Since that time, I have devoted my educational pursuits, research interests, professional endeavors, and political advocacy to all things sexuality and sexual healthcare. I feel a deep responsibility to participate in activities that serve to provide continued access to safe, legal abortion services and comprehensive reproductive/sexual healthcare for anyone who needs it. In addition to being a Planned Parenthood patient, I was also, in the early days of my career, fortunate to be employed as a sexuality educator and counselor with the organization.
Today, my work continues to be focused on sexual healthcare. I am the Founder and President of the Capital Region Center for Sexual Health, located in downtown Troy, NY. I provide sex therapy services to individuals and couples of all faiths, genders, orientations, and relationship styles. In addition to my clinical therapy practice, the Center offers sexual health trainings and workshops for a broad range of audiences on a wide range of sexuality and intimacy topics. The Center is a valuable sexual health resource in the Capital Region and beyond. Having a healthy, positive, and inspiring sex life whether with oneself or a partner is intimately woven into overall health and wellness."
