Thanks for stopping by. My practice is currently full. For those seeking individual supervision or consultation, please explore other practitioner options as I don’t currently keep a waiting list for prospective individual supervisees or consultees. For those interested in group supervision, feel free to get in touch to let me know about your interest so that I can contact you when a new opening occurs.

About Me

I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) through the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists.  I provide clinical consultation for mental health therapists and clinical supervision for post-graduate associates pursuing licensure in Oregon as professional counselors or marriage and family therapists.  My counseling practice serves individuals, couples and other relationship types, and groups.  I also offer consulting for practitioners wanting to start and grow their own private practices.

My commitment to this work is born out of my own healing.  A grandchild of Holocaust survivors and refugees, I was born into a body and family carrying the vulnerabilities of intergenerational trauma.  For much of my life, I suffered from various physical ailments, anxieties, and feelings of disconnection, with no real understanding of their source or the possibility of relief.

In 2008, I discovered meditation, which initiated a tangible physical and emotional healing process and anchored me in a source of spiritual inspiration. I began working with skilled therapists and accessing a more relational way of being in the world.  I also benefited greatly from Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE).

I completed a master’s degree in counseling in 2014 and have obtained extensive postgraduate training in a variety of psychodynamic, experiential, somatic, attachment, and trauma-informed approaches to therapy.  I’m also an active participant in several training groups for group therapists and pursue ongoing clinical consultation, supervision, and supervision mentorship to better understand my own way of being in therapeutic and supervisory relationships.  I’m a graduate of the Supervision Training Program at The Washington School of Psychiatry.

I aim to approach all of my clients and supervisees with cultural humility and actively seek out training and consultation to strengthen my awareness of my own assumptions, biases, positionality, power, and privilege.  I identify as ethnically Jewish, spiritual, white, U.S. born, able-bodied, cisgender male, heterosexual, and middle class.  I welcome open dialogue about how these and other differences will affect our working relationship.   

My primary counseling and supervision mentors, who I’ve studied with most directly, have been Jon Eisman, Donna Roy, Jessica Montgomery, Joshua Sylvae, Amy Ponteri, Stan Tatkin, Diana Fosha, Michelle Ribeiro, Ellen Wright, Ann Steiner, Lisa Aasheim, and Katherine Marshall Woods.  I’ve also gathered much inspiration from Ron Kurtz, Peter Levine, Judith Herman, Irvin Yalom, Louis Ormont, Robert Karen, David Wallin, Ofer Zur, Nancy McWilliams, Esther Perel, Will Hall, and Kenneth Hardy in their teachings and writings about therapy and supervision.  I name them with respect and appreciation.

I consider it a great blessing to have had many inspiring mentors and to be involved in work that I love within a wonderful community of clients, colleagues, family, and friends.
