I moved to Seattle in 2017 after spending the previous ten years on the East Coast in New York City and Washington, DC. I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska as a Jewish gay kid who always felt “out of place” in a community where these identities were largely invisible. I also lost my mother to cancer at the tender age of 16 while attempting to accept my gay identity. As a therapist, these experiences have helped me develop resiliency and to better understand how oppressive systems can create feelings of loneliness, isolation, despair, and hopelessness.

I enjoy working with clients from all walks of life, and am LGBTQ affirming.
You and your partner feel stuck and don’t know how to make things better. Arguments can go in circles and never feel resolved. Sometimes the smallest disagreement can escalate quickly. You don’t know why it has to be this hard when both of you want to feel understood and cared for. Maybe major life transitions and changes have made it hard to feel as connected as you used to. You miss feeling close, and like they have your back. Talking about your issues doesn’t seem to help, but avoiding them isn’t working either.

We all have strengths that we can develop, as well as challenges from which we can grow. Each crisis in our lives is an opportunity for healing and growth. As your therapist, I will use a variety of techniques to help you achieve your personal, professional, and spiritual goals. My primary approach is relational psychodynamic, meaning I focus on the healing power of the therapeutic relationship. An interactive and empathic therapist, I offer advice and support when needed, and I share my own experiences when I think they will be helpful. Though I have extensive, in-depth training, I rely greatly on intuition and humor in my work.

* Available for teletherapy in DC plus 26 states via Psypact* The symptoms and other problems that bring us to therapy are some of the worst happenings of life, ones we'd naturally prefer to get rid of. With a therapist's help, however, our symptoms can also become an opening to deeper self-understanding, new ways of living, and even an opportunity for new beginnings. Our suffering requires us to seek help so that we may learn to better help ourselves. With proper support we may come to see that our symptoms and difficulties were the first steps of a lifelong process of learning and growth.

Life can be hard sometimes, leaving us with bumps, bruises, and wounds that are difficult to heal on our own. Therapy is a space where you can better understand yourself so that you can heal and find a different and more meaningful way of being in the world. In the context of a safe and empathic therapeutic relationship, you are able to listen better to yourself, understand your emotional pain, and see the ways that it has impacted your life. It is through this process that the work of therapy can be both hard but ultimately rewarding.

**I am accepting new clients**. It can be difficult to know how to move forward in your personal life, work, or academics when fear, anxiety, or depression are making you feel stuck. I often find that when one hits a crossroad in their life, it can sometimes bring stress, but also has the capacity to create growth and resilience. Whether it’s experiencing overwhelming feelings of loneliness, coping with a difficult boss or colleague, feeling imposter syndrome in your program of study, or navigating the loss of a relationship, having a nonjudgmental and supportive space to work on areas of growth can make all of the difference.

Do you like to make progress quickly? I have often been told that clients make more progress with me in ONE session than in months of past therapy. We examine your past, as there cannot be genuine lasting change without insight into how patterns developed, but we are focused on creating the life you want NOW. I work best with clients who are motivated, intelligent, and verbal. Teletherapy only. Visit drpsychmom.com or read my books for more insight into my approach. Scheduling = ASAP, we don't want to slow down the momentum that brought you here. I'm down to earth and no BS.
