ABOUT

As a trauma informed psychotherapist, my practice is primarily focused on treating all types of trauma.  Our body's wisdom communicates to us through discomfort, dysregulation, numbness or dissociation, and even physical aches and pains.  I use somatic tools through a polyvagal and attachment lens and incorporate EMDR, CBT, parts work, guided imagery, and mindfulness to heal trauma.  I acknowledge and honor that this work requires courage on the part of the client; my partnership in this process holds a safe space at all times while providing guidance, psychoeducation, and tools to facilitate healing.  After a successful course of therapy, clients find themselves having healthier relationships, better able to regulate their emotions, and authentically connect to their core self.  

In addition to trauma work, I help adults who would like to strengthen their sense of self, gain clarity about their identity, learn assertiveness skills and set healthy boundaries. We identify habits and behaviors that no longer serve them well and create new pathways to achieving their goals.  

Each individual is unique, and therapy is not a "one size fits all" process. I custom tailor the therapeutic approach to the needs of each client, but one thing remains constant - the safe space where you're accepted as you are.  We set clear goals in the first session and check in over the course of treatment to ensure that we're moving forward toward those goals.  I invite you to contact me for a free phone consultation, where you will have an opportunity to learn more about how I work and to get a better idea of what to expect from therapy.

I also offer consultation services to mental health professionals who are starting a private practice in Israel.  Olim clinicians might be familiar with how to run a practice in their country of origin but are not aware of the practical, financial, and legal considerations in Israel.  I help therapists understand the business elements (the nuts and bolts of running a practice) and guide them in taking the steps to meet their professional goals.  

Tanya trained in Counseling Psychology at Fordham University of New York. In the earlier stages of her career, Tanya worked with the East Harlem population providing individual and group therapy to families of incarcerated mothers and victims of domestic violence. She was also part of the schizophrenia research team at Nathan S. Klein Institute for Psychiatric Research. Tanya pursued her specialty in Marriage and Family Therapy after moving to California and provided clinical services to older adults through Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles, treating a wide range of issues including grief, isolation, depression, and anxiety.  After making Aliyah, in 2012, Tanya opened a private practice in Israel. Seeing a wide gap between the mental health needs of the English-speaking public and their ability to access help in their mother tongue, Tanya founded Get Help Israel - The Israel Association of Mental Health Professionals.  The organization has helped over 70,000 people globally to find the right help and improve their quality of life.
