ABOUT ME

MY PRACTICE

   Welcome! Congrats for taking this major, courageous step towards greater well-being. If you're like most people, the fact that you're reading this probably means this is not an easy moment in your life. I'm happy you're here, though, and hope to help you turn this time of challenge into a time of growth, healing, and new possibilities.

   Whatever the series of events that brought you here, if it involves feelings of stuckness, difficulty, pain, guilt, shame, confusion, fear, anger, or loss, you've come to the right place. My counseling practice is rooted in the view that when we suffer, a large part of it is due to the stories we're telling ourselves about ourselves, others, and what life "should" be like. Beneath this tangled web of stories and beliefs, whether passed down from family, society, or concluded based on personal experience, there is a basic health. Anxiety, depression, confusion, inertia, and unfulfilling relationships are all symptoms of being lost in this web, and thus out of touch with this basic health. The work of therapy is similar to that of an archaeologist: the artifacts you’re looking for - a sense of wholeness, growth, ease, self love - are revealed when the years of accumulated sediments that keep them hidden are removed.

   By exploring your mental and somatic experience of life, we do just that: one stone, one bucket of earth at a time is removed, leaving you feeling a little bit more whole, more YOU.  Some of these stones are heavy, and so we chip away at them bit by bit. However long it takes, I am committed to helping my clients find peace and health. It’s not always easy work, but when done sincerely, it always pays off. 

   Studies show the number one predictor of success in therapy is the therapist-client relationship, so finding someone you feel good with is key. That’s why I offer prospective clients a full free introductory session. Come in, have a cup of tea, tell me about yourself and what you’re working with. Feel out the connection, and see if I feel like a good fit for your needs :)

BIO

   Hi! I'm Gadi (pronounced GAH-dee). I was born and raised in Israel, and moved to Boulder in 2014 to attend Naropa University, where I got my masters in clinical mental health counseling. For years I've been deeply curious about the mind, the nature of suffering and joy, and what it means to be fully human. It's this curiosity that led me down my own path of healing and into the counseling field, and is instrumental in my work of supporting others in theirs.

   I love this work and view it as a calling, and as deeply important work in service of a healthier, happier world for everyone.
