He/They

After confronting devastating questions of sexuality and gender with parents who pastored a conservative church, Isaac quickly realized there were very few resources for his family. He also learned that there were very few safe places where he could learn about his true identity without judgment or predetermined agendas. Over 10 years later, Isaac has grown the iAmClinic team to 10+ therapists and launched a sister company, iAmCouncil, to provide life and relationship coaching to individuals nationwide!

I chose counseling because I was once a young closeted kid that felt incredibly lonely, anxious, and lost. In wanting to heal and grow, it was important for me to find the answers for kids like me and families like mine, so that we could all experience the true connection and utter satisfaction I so deeply craved. It was with this motivation that iAmClinic was born. Before iAmClinic and the completion of my graduate studies, I spent time working in Child Protection and served as a project supervisor for a counseling program in the nonprofit world. I also worked in the main operating room at The Children’s Hospital. 

As a professional counselor, I use the techniques and insights given to the field of talk therapy by seminal authors/researchers like Pia Mellody, Terrence Real, Peter Levine, and Bessel van der Kolk. I interweave research-based modalities like Neurofeedback, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, and Somatic Experiencing, as well as empirically-based theories such as Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Feminist Theory into my practice. As I stepped out of the closet with anxiety, depression, and many unwanted behavioral patterns, I saw my healing journey as not only personally necessary, but as professionally worth it. I not only wanted to talk the talk, but also walk the walk. And as a clinician I believe it is important to be equipped with the knowledge, treatment interventions, and the skills to be effective in all facets of my clients lives so that I can offer the healing that changed my life to others. I believe in therapy, not because I have read a bunch of books, but because I am one major success story. When clients walk out of my office for the last time, I want them to feel the same liberty, connectedness, and internal peace therapy helped me discover.
