Yakʼéi ix̱wsateení! (It is good to see you!)

My name is Ryan Kozisek, and I am a registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist in California (AMFT #145310, supervised by Dr. Sheila Addison, LMFT). I see clients from all walks of life, and specialize in supporting people from my own communities, including trans, queer, neurodivergent, Indigenous, mixed or complicated race/ethnicity/culture, and chronically ill/disabled people and their loved ones. My approach is non-pathologizing, liberatory, and decolonial. I welcome teens 16+, adults, elders, couples, and polycules for individual and group sessions.

I am here because activism is inextricable from my work. Simply existing as a person with marginalized identities is a radical and labor-intensive act, and I am honored to serve my communities with client-centered therapy that recognizes this fact.

My basic premise as a therapist is that you are the world’s leading expert on your experience. Starting there, I create a saf(er) space for you to explore and make contact with your emotions, sensations, stories, and experiences, and I provide you with a curated toolkit of skills you can practice in your daily life outside of sessions. I offer a wide range of modalities, including Gestalt, Parts Work (related to Internal Family Systems/IFS), Emotionally-Focused Therapy/EFT (based in Attachment Theory), Narrative, Transpersonal, Psychodynamic, and EMDR. My understanding and practice of all these is informed by queer theory, decolonial theory, liberation psychology, and abolitionist theory.
