TRANSFORMATION THROUGH YOUR HEALING JOURNEY
Hi. I’m a psychotherapist (LMSW) with over 40 years of experience I provide clients with a therapeutic approach that’s Torah-based, holistic, creative, and goal-oriented.
I believe that everyone’s life journey benefits from developing a wide range of skills for recovery and growth. Sometimes we need to heal past hurts and traumas, while at other times we’re ready to integrate new, healthier beliefs or behaviors. Together we can decide which skills to focus on to reach your specific goal.
Your inner and external resources are great allies in this process. For example, we can use muscle testing to help determine which technique would be most comfortable and effective at any given point in the therapeutic process.
My approach is holistic, which means that I take into consideration the ‘whole’ person: body, heart, mind (conscious and subconscious) and spirituality. As someone who synthesizes Torah with psychology, I believe that our issues and challenges are designed by G-d to reveal our hidden strengths and undeveloped abilities. I have faith that since “G-d brought us to it, He will bring us through it” and that we will be enriched and inspired by the journey to self-knowledge and realization.
As therapist, I offer you the presence of a deep empathic listener, curious questioner, and active responder. I have also developed an original, highly effective paradigm for change called the 3 Circles of Self to help you be more confident, resourceful, and proactive.
Because it’s important for you to feel comfortable, safe, and relaxed when working with me, I offer the first 45 minute consultation at no charge so you can get to know me a bit. This introductory meeting can be in person, or via Skype or phone. I invite you to begin your healing journey by exploring if I am the one you choose to be there for you every step of the way.
