Why Dr. Chaya Lieba Kobernick chose to be in the helping profession
As a firm believer in the power of human potential, I am convinced that people were designed to flourish, not just survive.
I am deeply passionate about promoting mental wellness and advocating for effective treatment options. Every person deserves access to the resources they need to thrive, including quality mental health care. With the right support and guidance, anyone can not only alleviate symptoms - they can lead enriching and fulfilling lives.
By working together to address mental health issues, we can:
- break down the stigma surrounding mental health
- create a safe and welcoming environment for everyone to seek the help they need
- give everyone the opportunity to live their best life
Dr. Chaya Lieba Kobernick's approach
My approach to therapy is grounded in the principles of evidence-based practice, which rests on a sturdy three-legged stool:
(1) THE LATEST SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH
I am committed to staying up-to-date on the latest developments in the field.
I invest significant time and energy in continuing education and professional development to ensure that I am providing the best possible care.
(2) THE UNIQUE PREFERENCES AND NEEDS OF EACH INDIVIDUAL CLIENT
I believe that the best therapy is tailored to each client's specific situation, and I work collaboratively with my clients to identify their goals and develop a plan to achieve them. Whether you are seeking help with a specific issue or simply looking to improve your overall well-being, I am dedicated to helping you live your best life.
In my practice, I do not engage in aimless conversation or "shmuz therapy". If I sense that therapy has stalled or become unproductive, I will work closely with my client to refocus our efforts and get back on track toward their goals.
(3) MY OWN EXTENSIVE CLINICAL EXPERIENCE
My clients can expect me to be direct and honest with them, while also being empathetic and supportive. I will challenge them to make meaningful changes and take steps toward their goals, but I will also be there to offer guidance and encouragement along the way.
What you can expect from sessions with Dr. Chaya Lieba Kobernick
My approach to therapy is not about making sessions enjoyable or providing temporary relief from your problems. Instead, I am committed to helping you make lasting changes that will allow you to live a more fulfilling and satisfying life.
This may require us to dig deep and explore uncomfortable topics or experiences, but I believe that facing these challenges head-on is the best way to achieve long-term growth and transformation.
During our sessions, we will:
1. Work together to identify the root causes of the challenges you are facing and develop strategies to overcome them.
2. Likely analyze patterns in your life that may be contributing to your problems and figure out how to change those patterns for the long term.
What will we do to create that change?
Usually it involves some combination of challenging your assumptions, beliefs, and behaviors, and learning new ways of approaching situations that have previously caused you difficulty.
Therapy should be a collaborative and empowering process. I will work hard to create a safe and supportive space where you feel comfortable exploring your thoughts and feelings. Together, we will identify your strengths and build on them to help you achieve your goals and create a life that feels meaningful and fulfilling.
Dr. Chaya Lieba Kobernick's experience working with the Jewish community
As a therapist, I am deeply committed to providing services that are tailored to the unique needs and experiences of the frum community and my practice specializes in working with Orthodox Jewish clients.
I recognize that members of the frum community often face unique challenges and struggles, from navigating complex family dynamics to balancing religious obligations with the demands of modern life. As someone who is intimately familiar with the frum community and its values, I am well-equipped to provide compassionate care that takes into account the unique needs and experiences of each individual client.
Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or other challenges, I am committed to working with you to find solutions that are both effective and in line with your values and beliefs. I draw on a range of evidence-based therapies and techniques, tailored specifically to the needs of the frum community, to help clients achieve their goals and create the life they want.
If you are seeking a therapist who truly understands the unique challenges and experiences of the frum community, and who is dedicated to providing culturally sensitive care, I invite you to reach out today.
