Simi Lichtman, LCSW
Director of Operations
I provide trauma-focused individual and couples therapy to adults of all genders, and specialize in working with survivors of sexual and domestic violence, as well as working with members of the Orthodox Jewish community. Additionally, I have a strong foundation in sex therapy, which I incorporate throughout my work with couples and individuals.
In order to begin the difficult work of exploring your emotions and understanding yourself, you need a safe and understanding setting. For this reason, the emphasis of my therapy is on creating an empathic and nonjudgmental space for you to process the things that feel too overwhelming to experience on your own.
All of my therapy sessions are shaped by the theories and practice of Emotionally-Focused Therapy. I am passionate about this model, and believe it provides clients with an unparalleled experience of safety and growth. I have completed the EFT Externship and Core Skills training, am trained in Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT), and am on track to become a certified EFT therapist. I am actively involved in the EFT community, ensuring that I am constantly honing my skills as a therapist in order to provide my clients with the best possible care.
