My Approach to Helping

Cut out the commute, Therapy from the comfort of your own home. ONLINE THERAPY ONLY!!
• Marriage and couples • Infidelity • Addictions
• Trauma and PTSD
• Anxiety Disorders • Somatic Therapy • EMDR
We are over 15 very seasoned Virtual Counselors with over 175 years of combined experience.
Our practice specializes in treating children, adolescents, and adults using individual, group, couples, and family settings
Through years of experience, I’m confident that no problem is too great to overcome.

As the founder and Director of The virtual Counselors, it is my goal to provide you with quality therapy from qualified therapists.

Hi, my name is Zev Berkowitz. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have extensive post-graduate training in areas including the treatment of relationships, addictions, therapy with troubled teens, and recovery from trauma.

My virtual practice is devoted completely to Couples, Addictions and Relational Therapy. This may include individuals who are not in a relationship, or individuals where only one of the partners wants to attend Therapy session. Couples include premarital, married, straight and gay. All couples experience difficulties during a committed or long-term relationship. Helping couples work to resolve conflicts, addiction issues, develop trust and reconnect is the most satisfying work that I do. I do this by applying relationship tools, problem-solving, conflict management and role modeling communication skills so that every partner feels that they are important and a priority in the relationship and is heard.

I provide services to clients with a wide range of backgrounds, beliefs, and treatment issues. I often draw upon empirically-based treatment modalities, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Psychotherapy (GP), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).

For couple’s work, I’m trained in Imago Therapy and Gottman Therapy. While brief solution-focused therapy (8 to 20 sessions) is often sufficient to help clients resolve specific issues, I also offer long-term therapy for clients seeking insight and clarity regarding identity and interpersonal relationships.
Amongst our sub-specialties are:
Marriage and couples therapy with issues surrounding Infidelity or Addictions, (substance abuse and behavioral addiction such as Sex, Porn, Gambling, Internet etc,)
Anxiety Disorders
PTSD to name a few.
Some of our Modalities include:
Somatic Therapy & EMDR
Gotman & Imago for couples
Gestalt therapy
