Hi my name is Addie Liechty Kogan. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been a practicing therapist since 2010. I welcome people of all genders, ethnicities and orientations, into my practice. As a Queer, trans and non-binary person, I welcome anyone who has felt like an outsider in any way, shape or form.
People enter my therapy practice for all sorts of reasons. You may be at an impasse or a crossroads due to the loss of a relationship, a big life decision or general anxiety that you can no longer bear on your own. You may be suffering from the wounds of homophobia, transphobia, racism, white supremacy and patriarchy, on top of other traumas and early childhood wounds. Regardless, I seek to offer a safe space for you to access a deeper understanding of yourself and your underlying needs and motives, as well as a personal sense of freedom and empowerment. Therapy is often a potent space where we hold and process the pains of the past as well as the potentiality of the present and future. This creative healing process can often lead you towards more meaningful ways of living in the world.
Relationships are one of life's greatest teachers. Couples often benefit from an objective professional to help guide them towards healthier communication and deeper understanding. I enjoy working with couples of all constellations and couples that are navigating difference across culture, religion, gender and identity. Contact me for a free 30 minute consultation.
I enjoy working with people exploring a wide array of issues including relationships, issues related to identity, family of origin, depression, anxiety and past trauma. My individual work is primarily relational. I will seek to build an alliance with you that is safe and trustworthy in order to provide a container for your personal exploration and growth. Contact me for a free 30 minute consultation.
In my own professional development, I have gained greatly from mentors and consultants and want to offer this service to other clinicians. I would be a good fit for clinicians new to private practice, clinicians looking to add trauma informed and IFS informed interventions into their practice, as well as cis-gender clinicians looking to provide better care to transgender and gender non-conforming clients.
I am currently serving clients online, due to COVID-19. Contact me today to schedule your first session.
