Why Ari Poliakoff, LCSW chose to be in the helping profession

I have found that for myself this is the career path that is the best, most significant, and most enriching way to invest my time and energy while making a living.

Ari Poliakoff, LCSW's approach

Wouldn't it be great if your therapist didn't just listen to you, but helped YOU listen to yourself? You know, that Self that gets lost among all your responsibilities and commitments and social media and stress and all the things you tell yourself...all that stuff that makes you feel fragmented and overwhelmed. I love helping people discover themselves amidst the noise of life. Understanding yourself is the key to getting "unstuck" and moving towards healing, success, and growth.

What you can expect from sessions with Ari Poliakoff, LCSW

Most people start seeing a therapist because they seek support, validation, and empathy. While I certainly provide my clients with those gifts, I also, and more importantly will help you give these gifts to yourself. A central focus of our sessions will be on building a foundation of self-support and empowerment. If you're ready to get to know yourself better and to cultivate self-leadership, I'm here to help.

Ari Poliakoff, LCSW's experience working with the Jewish community

Throughout my practice, I have had the privilege of working with a diverse range of individuals from the Jewish community. I recognize the unique pressures and challenges that Jewish clients, particularly men, often encounter. Drawing from my understanding and sensitivity to these issues and my own personal experiences, I provide a supportive therapeutic environment that addresses these specific needs.
