Ephraim Portnoy BSW

Social Worker

ABOUT

My diverse background has given me the ability to help different types of people to better understand themselves, their relationships, and their own unique way of finding their path towards a more satisfying and productive life.

Depending on the needs of each client, I use a variety of therapeutic models, including traditional talk therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Acceptance based therapy such as ACT and Gestalt therapy, which focus on getting to know yourself and accept yourself in order to change.

I have experience in counseling using traditional Jewish ideas and applying that to evidence based therapy.  In addition, I have facilitated therapy groups and ran workshops on life and communication skills.

Since each person has a unique, personal expectation of what he or she wants to achieve through therapy, I would be happy to discuss with you how I can best be of help.
