Yehudit Fargeon MA

Couples and Family Therapist, Marital and Family Therapist

ABOUT

I retired from being a social worker and now have time for my passion which is couples and family therapy. I have been freelancing in the family therapy unit at the Schneider Children's Hospital since 2004 and I enjoy my work there tremendously.

I currently work privately as a couples and family therapist. The last couple of years I have been doing online training mainly at the Couples Institute, Menlo Park California, which teaches a developmental, positive, non pathological approach. I have also taken courses from Diane Poole Heller who is an expert on the implicit memories that the body is holding and helps make them explicit so that their negative influence can be released.

My approach is supportive. I consider my therapy as teamwork, with all adults involved (including the therapist) working hard, without blaming, and willing to try something different.

I have a lot of respect for couples and families.  It takes a lot of guts and I admire my clients who are willing to do the work. I am honoured to jump aboard and be the skipper for part of the journey.

Prior to working with couples, I have worked as a social worker since 1976, both in a boarding school setting as well as in Laniado hospital for over twenty years. In Laniado, I worked mainly on a geriatric ward but also on pediatrics and maternity wards and on the diabetic and dialysis outpatient clinics. In addition, I supervised social work and expressive art students.
