Why Chaya Bukiet chose to be in the helping profession
Throughout my life, I have found great joy and fulfillment in being a supportive presence for those around me. As a natural listener and empathetic friend, I was drawn to the field of therapy as a way to formalize and expand upon these skills. The focus on relationships and systems in marriage and family therapy resonated deeply with me, as I believe that our connections with others are a vital part of our overall well-being. It is a privilege to witness the resilience and strength of the human spirit as clients work through challenges and rediscover their own inner resources. I am honored to be a part of each client's unique journey and to support them in their growth and healing process.
Chaya Bukiet's approach
My approach to therapy is a dynamic combination of several therapeutic modalities that allow me to provide the most comprehensive support for my clients. As a psychodynamic therapist, I believe in exploring and processing past experiences to gain insight and awareness on the presenting challenges. Additionally, I am trained in the Gottman Method, a research-based approach to couples therapy, which I integrate into my work with couples. To further support my clients, I utilize tools from EFT, attachment theory, and DBT. During our sessions, you can expect me to be an active participant in the therapy process, engaging in a conversational style to facilitate exploration and understanding. I balance providing empathy and validation with my observations, reflections, and feedback to guide my clients towards healing and growth. With my experience and expertise, I strive to create a safe and supportive environment for my clients to explore their challenges and achieve their goals.
What you can expect from sessions with Chaya Bukiet
During our sessions, you can expect a comprehensive assessment process where we delve deep into your origin stories to gain a clear understanding of your thoughts, behaviors, and feelings. This assessment will take place over several sessions so that we can build a solid foundation and establish a strong therapeutic relationship. Once we have a clear understanding of your goals, we will collaborate on a treatment plan and work together to achieve those goals. Through our work together, my aim is to help you transform conflict and challenges into opportunities for growth and connection, ultimately leading to a more fulfilling and satisfying life. With my expertise and guidance, you can expect a safe and supportive space to explore and navigate your inner world.
Chaya Bukiet's experience working with the Jewish community
As a therapist, I have always felt a strong connection to the Jewish community and it's important to me to provide mental health care that is culturally sensitive and relevant. My Jewish background and upbringing have given me a unique perspective that helps me understand the specific challenges that Jewish clients may face. I have had the opportunity to work in various settings, including a community clinic and with Ohel, where I provided therapy to Jewish adolescents. I have worked with individuals and couples, both in one-on-one and group settings, and always strive to provide therapy that aligns with Jewish values. It is an honor to be able to support individuals and families within the Jewish community on their journey towards healing and growth.
