Why Chava Abramovitz chose to be in the helping profession
There are so many human beings with struggles, pains, and needs! In retrospect, one of the benefits of having grown through my own difficult experiences is the ability and desire to continue the chain of those who reach out a hand to help another in need of support. We can only give away what we own, and what we truly know, and part of the blessing of having traveled a path of challenge and growth is the opportunity to pass forward the learned processes and experiences. There is nothing in the world more exciting and compelling for me than to be present with and accompany another who is willing to be vulnerable, honest with themselves, and on a journey to their higher self.
Chava Abramovitz's approach
No matter what background, race, social standing, religion, financial position, age, or intellect, of a person, after working a few years as a psychotherapist it became clear that almost all human suffering stemmed from relationship and attachment trauma. Whether long-term "complex" or single-event trauma, the impact on the mind can take root and continue to impact the way we learn to be within ourselves and in relationships with others.
To address the needs I saw, I trained or became certified in the most current evidence-based modalities: Sensorimotor (Somatic) Psychotherapy, Ketamine Assisted Therapy, IFS, Brainspotting, EMDR, Mindfulness, Havening, and EFT (Tapping). Based on your specific needs and preferences, we'll use a mix of these skills to address your struggles at their core. We can save a lot of your time by not staying stuck in an old story, but instead addressing and adapting your state of mind to the present.
By allowing regulation to happen through our relationship at the moment, you gain the ability to remain aligned with the present in a state of acceptance, regulation, and support. This focus builds new neuropathways in the brain, allowing your mind to settle into a state of more regulated emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

Chava Abramovitz's experience working with the Jewish community
I have spent the last decade working closely within the Orthodox community, allowing me to become familiar with and appreciative of a wide range of Jewish identities and backgrounds. This experience has given me unique insights into the workings of this community, as well as its particular challenges. I approach my work with an open mind and a deep understanding of the diverse dynamics within this community. My goal is to create a welcoming and supportive environment where individuals from all Jewish backgrounds can explore their unique experiences and concerns.
