ABOUT

My practice is focused on, but not limited to, clients and their families experiencing change, adjustment, and transition. I have worked closely with parents in the Orthodox Jewish community whose children have come out as LGBTQ+, and want to help others navigate what can be an emotional, sometimes painful process. Giving folks a way to channel their fears and deferred dreams into loving relationships is incredibly important to me. Individuals who come out need support and often, so do their family members. 


 


I am also committed to working with people experiencing grief and loss related to the death of a loved one, way of life, and whatever once felt "normal." Having worked in hospice and moving to Israel taught me that grief isn't only about losing the people in our lives, but the lives we once led, the countries from which we moved, and even the creature comforts we once enjoyed.


 


My clients have told me that they feel hopeful and supported by our work together. They look forward to not only being heard, but leaving sessions with practical, relatable, and doable problem solving techniques. 


 


I look forward to working with you.
