About Simcha

2016_headshot_bwFor 15 years I was a psychotherapist in Seattle, specializing in couples and relationship work.  I hold a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, and am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Washington.

This blog reflects my belief that the quality of our relationships largely determines the quality of our lives. Please enjoy these postings about love, sex, connection, parenting and personal growth — selections from books, magazines and newspapers that you may find helpful in your personal lives. 


Earlier in my career, before retraining as a psychotherapist, I co-founded and served as Creative Director of a small Israeli media firm. My firm produced museum presentations, culture-focused online magazines, CD-ROMS, and two books: Beyond the Sambatyon: The Myth of the Ten Lost Tribes, and Edward Lear’s Book of Nonsense (both with accompanying CD-ROMs).

As I wind down my private practice, I have returned to the art of visual storytelling. Starting out by making videos for family and friends, I have now taken the leap to producing documentaries for the large screen.
