I specialize in neurodivergence, family systems , parenting skills and support, self-esteem, identity development, anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, and working with the LGBTQ population.
Do you feel like you have to hide parts of yourself or wish parts would go away? Do you struggle to show up as your authentic self? Are you feeling resentful, lonely, and struggling to connect with loved ones? Are you feeling stuck and overwhelmed? Are your relationships nurturing or have life circumstances left those connections feeling stagnant? I have a direct and compassionate approach working with you so the therapeutic plan will reflect you as a whole person. Our holistic treatment plan will include honoring the client’s racial, gender, sexual, and spiritual identities.

For those looking for a therapist with a specific theoretical orientation, I am most likely to use EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy); IFS (Internal Family Systems ); CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) and Mindfulness techniques as well as dream/soul work.
My specialties are premarital and couple counseling, issues around sexuality for men and women, and counseling individuals with anxiety, depression and life changes. Couples and individuals who find me helpful often find that they feel stuck and unhappy. They have been unable to reason themselves out of their difficulties yet desperately want to change. They need help figuring out what is going on beneath the surface and how to use this newfound knowledge to heal. People who work with me want someone who is collaborative and nonjudgmental.

I draw from Family Systems and Social Constructivism theories (the belief that there are a multitude of truths, and a singular truth is incomplete).
You might be feeling loneliness, loss, hurt, sadness, and frustration. You may also have experiences of family disruption, trauma, societal stigma, and not quite fitting in with your peers. In therapy, we will uncover the blocks that keep you feeling stuck in unresolved grief, disconnected relationships, depression, and anxiety, so that you can live a more enriching life. I come from the understanding that you innately carry the resources to thrive. Together, we can embark on a continued journey, learning about the complexity of who you are and ways you can heal to connect with your core self.

My approach includes Internal Family Systems ( IFS ), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), EMDR, psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), relational cultural therapy, and incorporating somatics.
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.

This is accomplished by using Mindfulness Self Study, Hakomi Therapy, Somatic experiencing and Internal Family Systems .
Three decades in private practice has reinforced my belief that much of our struggles are rooted in some of our earliest formative experiences. Our thoughts, emotions, perceptions and behaviors are largely shaped by impactful conditions and experiences. Patterns and strategies often become unconscious, automatic and at times destructive. This is often what brings us to therapy. My goal is to create a therapeutic relationship that allows doors to open through connection and compassion. My approach draws on many years of experience in the art of somatic based psychotherapies and depth oriented psychology.

I offer a reflective and somatic-based experience utilizing trauma informed modalities such as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems and Hakomi as well as alternative therapeutic approaches including Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy.
Healing is an intimate journey towards ever greater wholeness (acceptance, compassion, and integration of all parts of ourselves). I value the sacred opportunity to join alongside you. Therapy is a unique endeavor; one in which you the client and me as therapist collaborate to create a space for the unburdening of life’s stressors, of pain, grief, sorrow, and confusion as well as space to seek answers to existential questions about what gives life meaning; being witness to your growth as you unfurl, soften, and ultimately discover deeper compassion for self and others.

I have additional training in DBT, Internal Family Systems , Art Therapy, Mindfulness, and LGBTQ issues.
Currently accepting clients for January 2023 Art Therapy intern on sliding scale basis ONLY. I believe the therapeutic relationship is valuable in making change. I focus on getting to know the way you experience yourself, your world, and others around you. The systems we exist in provide varying degrees of privilege and oppression, each of which can have significant impacts on how we relate to our selves and the world around us. I aim to help you explore and gain insight in order to make meaningful changes. I value compassion, equity, creativity, humor, and honesty in my work with clients.

My approach is grounded in Emotionally Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems Theory, and post-modern theories which examine our larger cultural stories and values.
Life and relationships are challenging, so much so that an entire industry of self-help books can’t seem to find the right answers for everybody. Sometimes it reaches a point where a more tailored approach is needed to find what has got you stuck. My goal is to offer reflection, support, and a safe place to explore your path forward.

I am well-versed in a number of therapy approaches, including cognitive-behavioral, internal family systems , and acceptance and commitment therapies.
Folks I work with describe me as warm and nonjudgmental, yet assertive and highly engaged. Our work will be an active collaboration - while I will continuously strive to deeply understand your inner experience, I will also point out things in your behavior or thinking that you may not be aware of and offer potential explanations of your challenges as well as practical suggestions about achieving your goals. As you gain more understanding and compassion towards the anxious, depressed, angry, or hurting parts of yourself, you will feel increasingly more grounded and empowered to lead the life that you desire.

My style in therapy is informed by mindfulness somatic based approaches, as well as parts work (Internal Family Systems ), sprinkled with spiritual/metaphysical perspectives if that resonates with you.
We can see our symptoms as the language our soul is using to communicate where we are ready and needing to heal, integrate, and find balance. And we all have experienced trauma in one form or another that has led towards protective but misaligned habits and negative ways of relating to ourselves and the world. I enjoy creating a supportive space where I help you to unlearn what no longer serves you, reconnect with your most authentic self, and rediscover love and safety within your body. (Strictly offering TeleHealth/zoom therapy as I have moved out of state)

At its core, I believe therapy to be about cultivating space where change can occur. People come to therapy for a variety of reasons—seeking support and healing, desiring change, looking for relief from pain. As a therapist, I am committed to creating a safe-enough space for you to explore what brought you here, to listen well, and to offer a supportive, non-judgmental presence. This is collaborative work — we’ll look at how you landed here, in an effort to find new ways of being that may be kinder to yourself and more congruent with a whole and healthy life.

I work with young adults in their 20's and early 30's focusing on the struggles experienced coming into adulthood. The transition into finding yourself as an adult can be a confusing and even disorienting experience at times. We all have assumptions and expectations of what this stage of life will look like, but most don't anticipate bouncing between feeling out of control and being paralyzed with fear or doubt. This is when a therapist can provide a wonderful support in facilitating a more grounded experience of exploring your own path.

Many of us are feeling overwhelmed and stressed out right now. You might be feeling sad or angry about having to miss out on "regular life" or important events, or you may be stuck in a stressful living situation or a job that you now feel stuck in. Maybe you're feeling guilty because you feel like you "should" be grateful right now, but you really just feel awful. Whatever you are going through, talking to a therapist can be a lifesaver. We can help you make sense of what is going on in the world and your life, and help you feel supported and empowered in this time of uncertainty. We are here to be your non-judgemental support.

For over 25 years I have integrated the science of psychology with the art of psychotherapy to achieve these goals.I will help you break out of intractable patterns and discover better ways of being with yourself and relating to others.

I work with adults and teens around issues of trauma, depression, anxiety, relationships, LGBTQ+ concerns, grief and loss, and more. In therapy, we will tend to the parts of your story that feel troublesome and work toward a deepening experience of freedom, connection, and joy. We will explore the nature of your individual concerns within the context of your narrative, which may include important relationships, your past experiences, and the societal systems that have impacted you. My goal will be to address your concerns, listen to your story, and work with you to co-create solutions for recovery.

Perhaps you feel alienated, empty, or disconnected. Maybe you struggle to trust yourself and others. It might be difficult to hold your boundaries and advocate for yourself. Unaddressed pains can show up as anxiety, depression, trauma, harmful relationships, self-criticism, and addictions - also manifesting on physical and spiritual levels. You might feel stuck and overwhelmed on how to move forward. Therapy is a place where you can build a deeper understanding of yourself, what you’re experiencing, where that comes from, and what that means to you. It takes a lot of courage to (re)connect with yourself and share your story.

The lasting impacts of past or current traumas, grief, or addiction, can leave us questioning who we are and how to imagine or build a present or a future we are hopeful for. By bringing these personal narratives into the space of therapy, the process of integration, compassion, self-discovery, lament, empowerment, healing, and ultimately freedom, can begin. As a therapist, I am deeply passionate about helping others build, create, uncover, and discover the people they were meant to be and to live in the fullness of the light they were created from and for.
