Noah Granade, MSW, LCSW
Clinical Program Coordinator
Trauma Specialized Psychotherapist
Membership & Credentials
In my personal and professional life, I’ve witnessed how strongly relationships impact every aspect of our health and wellbeing. I chose to become a therapist, in part, to increase access to safe and healing relationships in a professional capacity, especially for those who have complicated, pathologized, and/or marginalized mental health presentations and/or trauma histories.
My work in the mental health field began in 2015, in residential care for individuals experiencing significant emotional and behavioral difficulties. I then transitioned to community mental health care, providing in-home therapy services for children and families. I have also worked across a range of levels of care with individuals in eating disorder recovery and have served as an advocate for LGBTQ+ rights for several non-profit organizations. These opportunities have afforded me the ability to support individuals of diverse ages, mental health conditions, neurological presentations, and backgrounds. My professional and personal path have supported my passion for specializing in transgender-affirming care and recovery from complex trauma.
Noah's Approach to Therapy
I aim to create a therapeutic environment that invites all aspects of you to heal and thrive. I work collaboratively with clients to build resources and skills that enhance their sense of empowerment and overall quality of life. My first task as a therapist is to establish an embodied sense of safety within the therapeutic relationship, especially for clients who have experienced profound relational/attachment trauma. Key elements in my work include creating a deepened connection to self, safe connections with others, and incorporating connection to our natural world and/or spiritual practices. I utilize a relational, somatically integrative approach to promote greater ease in navigating the internal world and external realities. I practice from an anti-oppressive, justice-oriented perspective and welcome all backgrounds and identities.
Some of the theories and modalities that inform Noah’s practice are: Attachment, and Systems Theories, Interpersonal Neurobiology, The Structural Dissociation Model, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
Noah is also currently working towards completion of Tier II of Embodied Recovery for Eating Disorders , a “trauma-informed, relationally oriented, and neurobiologically supported approach to the treatment of eating disorders.”
