ABOUT

Challenges are a natural part of life. Some are more manageable than others.  If you're finding yourself feeling stuck, therapy is the solution for navigating through challanges without feeling controlled by them.


In therapy, I help my clients identify habits and behaviors that no longer serve them well and create new pathways to achieving their goals.  This is done with sensitivity and respect for where the client is holding. 


My areas of specialty include anxiety/panic, depression, trauma, self-esteem, and relationships (spousal/partner, parent/adult child).  As a trauma-informed psychotherapist, I use somatic intervention and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to help my clients process traumatic experiences in a safe space.


Over the years I have worked in a variety of settings, including providing individual and group therapy at community counseling centers in New York and Los Angeles, and have facilitated workshops on self-esteem, trauma, relationships, and communication. 


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.


Tanya trained in Counseling Psychology at Fordham University of New York.  Prior to moving to California, 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 continued 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 thousands of English-speakers globally to find the right help and improve their quality of life.
