Ahuva Wisebrod MSW

Clinical Social Worker

ABOUT

Hi. My name is Ahuva and I am a clinical therapist who works with teenagers and young adults (ages 13-40). I help my clients deal with issues of depression/anxiety, OCD, phobias, trauma, self esteem, family issues, social issues, and more. Whether there is a specific diagnosed problem, or a general desire to feel better, I work with the client to create a safe place where s/he can explore what s/he is thinking, feeling, and experiencing in order to gain better self-understanding, and learn the tools and skills that are necessary to reach his/her own therapeutic goals. When working with teens, I often meet with the parents as well, in order to best help the teenage client.

My background is in social work; specifically, working with youth at-risk at Crossroads Center for English-speaking teens. I’ve also worked with the elderly, severely mentally ill, and Charedi populations. I speak fluent English and Hebrew and often use both in session with Anglo-Israeli clients. I am trained in psychodynamic, CBT, and DBT therapeutic styles, which I integrate to best suit the individual client’s needs…with a bit of humour mixed in, when apropriate.
I truly feel honoured and grateful that i have the opportunity to help people gain further understanding and knowledge about themselves and the world around them and look forward to being a part of each individual’s journey to becoming a more integrated, connected, and purposeful person.
