Joel Portnoy Verified
I am a certified Imago Couples Therapist, Strategic Intervention Coach, and Prepare & Enrich Facilitator, helping couples to improve their communication skills, to prepare for marriage, and to heal rifts in their relationships.
Everyone says that relationships require work, but few people can show you how to actually improve your marriage or partnership. With no road-map for happiness, you sometimes need real-life guides with wisdom and experience to show you the way.
With over 30 years of experience as a Community Rabbi,supporting individuals,couples and families, people find me a highly empathic therapist and life coach. I work - in person and on line - with couples in crisis and with those who want to make their relationship even stronger; integrating IMAGO, ACT and SI Coaching. I believe that it is possible to strengthen relationships through enhanced communication, love and connection, and I guide engaged couples towards these goals using the Prepare & Enrich Program.
If you both believe that you really could be “2 Halves of a Soul”, talk to me about how I can help bring you closer together.
I look forward to working with you.
