Why Caryn Guttman-Weber chose to be in the helping profession
I entered the field of psychology driven by a genuine curiosity to understand people, their motivations, and the ways in which they navigate life's challenges.
As a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) from the International Association of Trauma Professionals (IATP), I possess specialized training in supporting individuals who have experienced trauma. Additionally, I have received training in family and couples counseling from the esteemed Ackerman Institute.
In my practice, I utilize evidence-based modalities such as Psychodynamic therapy, Internal Family Systems, Somatic Experiencing, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. These approaches allow me to tailor my therapeutic interventions to address the unique needs of each individual or couple.
My commitment is to provide a safe and supportive space where clients can explore their challenges, heal from past wounds, and develop the tools to navigate life's complexities. Together, we embark on a transformative journey, unlocking inner strengths and resilience to achieve personal growth, improved relationships, and enhanced well-being.

Caryn Guttman-Weber's experience working with the Jewish community
In my work with the Jewish community, I have come to deeply appreciate our shared experiences and the support we provide to one another.
