Why I chose to be in the helping profession

Jewish Social Worker in New York, NY

I am often asked, ‘what is therapy?’ In my practice, therapy means carving out a weekly space where my clients and I talk about their lived experiences. The topics my clients and I discuss in session are determined by the clients; I work at my clients' pace to establish relationships and build the understanding that I am unconditionally in their corner to succeed. My goal is to empower clients and help them face personal challenges in order to achieve their dreams.

I am a trauma cautious clinician who has experience working with individuals who have symptoms of depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorders (PTSD), psychotic disorders, and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. I have experience working with Jewish women from a variety of communities, Sephardic, Ashkenazi, Lubavitch, Chassidish, Satmar, and Modern Orthodox. My approach is evidence-based modules such as CBT, DBT, EMDR and Motivational interviewing.

I am a graduate of New York University’s Silver School of Social Work. Currently, I work at the acute inpatient psychiatric hospital, Gracie Square Hospital. Gracie Square offers a Kosher Program catering to Jewish populations; within the Kosher program I run a women’s group regarding the weekly Torah portion. I am experienced in working with individuals and families who are newly diagnosed with symptoms of Bipolar and Schizophrenia. For many years, I worked as an advocate serving survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Beth Israel’s Emergency Room. Additionally, I have experience working with individuals and family members who are either fighting cancer or lost a loved one to cancer.
