About

Being fully seen and fully accepted by one’s life partner is a universal human need, the stuff of spirituality - an experience felt in the soul, not just the mind or the heart. Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) provides a roadmap for how to get there. All of us show up to adult relationships with baggage, echoes of times we felt unsafe in prior relationships. After a decade serving adults individually, I have pivoted to focus on helping couples work through the internal barriers that prevent them from feeling as close to their partners as they deserve to feel. The healing power of secure attachment inspires me; I believe in it.
In my career I've seen a lot and worked with many different kinds of individuals; hence, I'm professional and nonjudgmental. Couples of any age or status - queer, hetero, trans, parenting, multiracial, poly, kinky, neurodiverse, monogamous and beyond - are welcome in my practice.
I identify as queer, Jewish, white, and male/cis-male. I seek a practice that is liberatory, anti-oppressive and identity-affirming. Feel free to check out my website (http://davidavruch.space), podcast (A Feminist Therapist) or blog to get a sense of my approach. As far as fees, I am an out-of-network provider: I do a sliding scale, but not insurance.
