Tzippora Price MSC

Certified Couples and Family Therapist

ABOUT

I am a marital and family therapist and a family systems therapist who views each individual within the context of their psycho-social environment. As a family systems therapist, I have developed specializations in the impact of alexithymia, empathy impairment, Asperger syndrome, and autistic spectrum disorders on the family unit.  I specialize in working with couples on parenting children with unique social and emotional needs, and also specialize in couples where one or both members are experiencing social and emotional challenges which impact their ability to parent effectively.  I also work with helping individuals, couples and families in order to help them recover from traumatic experiences, overcome personal barriers, and develop more satisfying relationships. I believe each client and situation deserves its own unique therapeutic approach. My style is interactive and engaging, and includes the use of humor, metaphor, psycho-drama, psycho-education and therapeutic writing. I encourage my clients to define their own therapeutic objectives and focus the work of therapy on achieving short term and long term goals and creating lasting change.

Let’s Talk About Grief

August 1, 2017

Grief seems to be a taboo emotion these days. We mourn. We move on. Or at least we claim to. “I’m over it.” Is a common cultural expression, and it’s one we usually receive at face value. When someone tells us “I’m over it.”, as a listener nothing more is expected of us.

Longing and Belonging – Part 1

July 27, 2017

“Sometimes I feel that you do not want to be part of the family”, Jennie says, crouching down beside her fourteen year old son David, who is sitting on the floor behind the couch immersed with his Playmobile.

I Think My Spouse Has Asperger’s

December 26, 2016

“No, he is not the reason I came. Since his diagnosis, I have learned a lot about autism, and the different forms it can take. I’ve come to talk about my husband. I believe he is also on the autistic spectrum. I believe he has Asperger syndrome.”

My Child, Myself

December 5, 2016

It’s not uncommon after a child receives a diagnosis for a parent to begin to see some of the same signs in themselves. They might think “Hey, maybe that’s why I am always losing things” or “I also have a problem with tight itchy clothing,” or “I’ve never realized that its bright overhead lights that give me migraines.” Perhaps the parent realizes that they also become flooded with emotion and take longer to calm down than other people around them. Perhaps they realize that they are more than just shy and may suffer from a genuine social phobia. Perhaps the parent now acknowledges their own difficulties with sitting still, managing their anxiety, or tuning out background noise in order to follow a conversation in a noisy room.

Dear Tzippora – question from LA

November 5, 2016

Dear Tzippora,
I have a child on the autistic spectrum whose behavior can be strange and confusing for people who are not familiar with this disorder. Yet I enjoy having guests in my home both for Shabbos meals, and as sleepover guests. I don’t want to give up hosting others in my home because of my daughter’s diagnosis, yet I don’t know how to balance the desire to have guests with the reality of my daughter’s embarrassing and unpredictable emotional outbursts.
