Mental Health Counselor
Finding the right therapist is an important step towards healthier, happier living. My approach is holistic, goal oriented, and future-focused. A tailor-made technique is developed for each client. Drawing on a number of therapeutic modalities, I frequently use mindfulness, psycho-dynamic, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. In family therapy I use Bowenian, structural, strategic, and Gottman techniques.
I also serve as mentor for those in the shidduch dating process and engaged couples consult me for prenuptial counseling. Married couples resolve intimacy issues, reduce conflict, and gain better communication skills. In divorce arbitration, my legal and rabbinic training and experience inform my work.
Recovery from childhood trauma or gender identification issues is a goal that I can help clients reach as well. I'm also trained and experienced to guide people who want to free themselves from substance abuse or other dependencies such as gambling, overspending, overeating, or addictions related to the internet.
I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to help clients recover from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and overcome their anxiety or panic. As consultant to families who are caretakers of elderly parents, I've assisted with peaceful transitioning to supportive health care facilities.
You are welcome to contact me for a confidential assessment of how I can help you clarify and finally reach your therapeutic goals.
