Jeni Danto MSW

Clinical Social Worker

ABOUT

I made aliyah from Teaneck, NJ with my husband and 5 children in 2009. I have a Masters in Social work and am a certified CBT therapist with a private practice in Ramat Beit Shemesh and Jerusalem. In America, I worked as a School Therapist, Residence Manager for a home for disabled women, Respite Coordinator and Family Therapist.

Therapy is a brave step, and I will work together with you to help change your life and achieve your goals. I implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among patients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which enables one to reach their goals and change their lives in a timely fashion by working on changing their thoughts and behaviors. From small scale circumstances, to traumatic experiences- my services are personalized to suit everyone’s needs.

I am able to provide therapy via Skype all over the world, in keeping up with the trend of online therapy. You don’t need to leave your home and waste travel time. All the benefits of therapy without leaving your house. I also provide email therapy, an up and coming mode of therapy for those who prefer to get their thoughts down in writing and prefer that to face to face conversation. It’s also a great alternative for those who have trouble keeping timed appointments, or are just too busy.

I work with teens through adults, and have a special sensitivity towards those spending their gap year abroad.

“Change your thoughts and you change your world.”

Separation Anxiety

October 30, 2017

When we hear the term “Separation Anxiety,” we often think of young children off to pre-school, crying because they don’t want their parents to leave. But Separation Anxiety can come any time your child leaves the nest — especially at college age. And it’s not just limited to the child — parents can also experience Separation Anxiety when their child leaves them.
