ABOUT

TRANSFORMATION THROUGH YOUR HEALING JOURNEY  Hi. I'm a psychotherapist with over 35 years of experience. I provide clients with a therapeutic approach that's Torah-based, holistic, creative, and goal-oriented. I have studied many different modalities from conventional to non-conventional. I believe that everyone's life journey benefits from developing a wide range of skills for healing 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  decide which process and skills to focus on to reach your specific goals. If you are comfortable with muscle testing, I can use it to help clarify which method might be more efficient. 


My approach is holistic, I  take into consideration your whole person: body, heart, mind (conscious and unconscious) and soul. Sometimes the conscious has one goal while the unconscious is not "ready, willing, and able" to move forward. I work with both parts.  As someone who can synthesize Torah with psychology, I can offer an understanding that  issues and challenges are designed by G-d to reveal and develop your hidden strengths and  abilities. I have faith, from my own journey, and facilitating hundreds of others, that since G-d brought us to it, He will bring us through it-- with gifts. I am respectful if you prefer me not to refer to Judaic sources.


I am  open-hearted and open-minded offering you the presence of a emphatic and intuitive listener, curious and compassionate explorer, and active guide. I have  developed an original, highly effective paradigm for change called the 3 Spheres of Self to help you understand yourself, (your inner voices),  and to help you make more aware, empowered choices. I am also familiar with the 12 Steps of Recovery. Because I want you to feel comfortable, and safe when working with me, I offer 20 minute consultation at no charge. This introductory meeting can be in person, or via Skype or phone.


I congratulate you for this courageous step in your healing journey by looking for a therapist. I look forward to hearing from you.
