Hello and welcome,

I'm Raia Kogan and I am a Somatic Psychotherapist specializing in helping individuals and couples deepen intimacy, passion, authenticity, and self-expression in relationships.

Healing begins when we can meet our experience with love, compassion, and acceptance, including the painful or uncomfortable parts. A relationship with a supportive ally is a vital part of healing. 

Through a somatic and mindful approach, I will help you develop increased love and compassion for yourself and to bring curiosity to habitual patterns that no longer serve your desires for your life. Through somatic psychotherapy, you can transform on many levels at once to create a deeper and more sustainable shift.

  • Through developing increased awareness of your inner experience and emotions, you will learn to express yourself more fully with others in your life.

  • Through developing acceptance and compassion towards yourself, you will be able to connect with others in your life more openly and deeply. 

  • Through the container of our work together, you can begin to practice relating with another person in a more intimate, vulnerable, and authentic way. 

I love supporting clients who may struggle to feel seen or understand in therapy, especially queer, poc, radical, sex worker, social justice activist, poly, and kinky folks

Raia will be on maternity leave from mid-October through January and will resume taking new clients in January. Contact her below for questions or a free 30-minute phone consultation to learn about working together:
