Chava Lederer MSC

Individual, Marital, and Family Therapist

ABOUT

Considering therapy is a courageous choice. It denotes a willingness to be honest with yourself, and a determination that things be better than they are now. And they can be.

In the process of therapy, you will re-discover your strengths and develop your resources. With this focus on your personal resources, you will be empowered from the very beginning. In time, greater awareness about whats working and what’s not in your life will lead to making choices that truly fit for you. Old, troublesome experiences will lose their grip. You will begin to find more comfort in yourself. You will begin to trust yourself more. You will find yourself pursuing life with greater vigor. Your life will feel like it is finally yours to own.

I believe in the innate healing power that every person carries. My role as therapist is to support you in tapping into that power, in harnessing, and in channeling it. I will be there to sift out the obstacles to getting what you need, to support you in setting them aside. I will work together with you to determine what you want, and to bring it to fruition in the best way possible.

As a person and as a professional, I respect every person from every walk of life, from any background. I honor you for who you are, where you’ve come from, and for who you want to become.

Earth, Water, Air, and Fire

June 5, 2016

The four classical elements are channels through which we make contact with the present moment reality, and engage our uniquely human mind – a mind capable of creativity, of connecting to others, of faith and spirituality.  I offer you these four elements as resources in moments of stress, panic, fear, or any other overwhelming experience.
