My Approach to Helping

I have two decades of experience as a couple's therapist, working with hundreds of couples who have learned how to communicate and develop more intimate and fulfilling relationships. In a completely non-judgmental environment, I will help you or you with your partner work through relationship challenges by growing more conscious of your issues and learning how to develop empathy and tune into each others needs. Through guidance and feedback, I also integrate various techniques and formulate an action plan tailored to your specific goals. I work with individuals and couples who are ready and committed to working on a deeper level so they can grow and evolve. I also provide virtual counseling to clients with HIPPA based platforms.

I am a multilingual therapist and offer sessions in Spanish, Hebrew and Farsi. I also created a Premarital and Marital E-Course for couples.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

It's essential to have good chemistry and not feel judged in the relationship with your therapist in order to grow and evolve. I maintain a non-judgmental environment with empathy, warmth, and care. I am interactive and like to give my clients feedback. I help you to explore those troubled aspects of your life, while offering you the best treatment approach possible. In an atmosphere that promotes self-acceptance, understanding and trust, you will be able to explore and eliminate those conflicts that get in your way so that you can feel better and finally reach your goals.

I also specialize in relationship issues and regularly work with couples to deepen intimacy and improve communication. My clients achieve their goals through practical solutions, insights and a deeper understand of themselves.

The purposed of psychotherapy is to have a witness who can help guide you to deeper parts of yourself. You are constantly gaining insights about yourself as you grow to have more space for others. You are evolving as a person and taking in all the wonderful aspects of life. Your judgment improves as you make more sound and solid decisions in your life. You are able to be your true authentic self with others as you embrace both your strengths and weaknesses and learn to experience self acceptance.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love helping my clients identify where they are feeling stuck and learn what their triggers are so they can feel more in control of their lives. I also love being a part of their growth and watching them evolve into someone they like and respect. I feel honored to be on their journey with them as they identify their triggers, gain insights and create a more fulfilling life.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

I believe it is the strong person who goes to therapy as it is a hard process and you need to be motivated and introspective. This kind of work requires strength, depth and insight. A you learn more about yourself you can feel in control and create the life you desire. In the book "The Roadless Traveled" Dr. Scott Peck states in the chapter on "GRACE"...when a person becomes symptomatic and suffers from depression, anxiety etc..it is an opportunity to grow more conscious and ultimately live a better life.
