Why Tani Foger, Ed.D, LPC chose to be in the helping profession

From my earliest memories, the desire to become a therapist has been deeply ingrained within me. Raised as an only child by a single mother after my parents' divorce, I learned to adapt and evolve like a chameleon, honing skills that allowed me to navigate various environments. My journey into the helping profession is driven by a profound sense of empathy and a commitment to aiding others in coping with life's challenges.

My professional trajectory began in the dynamic setting of a methadone maintenance clinic in Israel. This experience was both challenging and rewarding, often tugging at the heartstrings. Transitioning into the role of a school psychologist further fueled my passion. Working comprehensively with students, teachers, and parents provided me with a holistic perspective on a child's life. The subsequent role of a school principal deepened my understanding of the intricate pressures that schools exert on families.

With this blend of experiences, I ventured into private practice, amalgamating my diverse background to offer a unique vantage point in helping parents and teens navigate the complexities of adolescence and family life. Beyond individual counseling, I facilitate parenting workshops and support groups for women entering retirement or grappling with empty nest syndrome.

As a mother to four sons and a grandmother to seven, spanning from preschool to college, I approach parenting and family concerns from the nuanced perspectives of a therapist, parent, and grandparent. This multifaceted viewpoint contributes to my effectiveness in working with clients.

My specialization encompasses Conflict Resolution, Bully Prevention, Short-Term and Goal-Oriented Therapy, Family Therapy, Teacher Consultation, Parent Consultation, and addressing learning issues, including ADHD and ASD. Additionally, I focus on anxiety and stress management, along with techniques to enhance social skills and peer relationships.

Through my diverse experiences and skill set, I am dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of those I serve, fostering resilience and empowerment in the face of life's challenges.

Tani Foger, Ed.D, LPC's approach

In my therapeutic practice, I provide a nurturing environment grounded in supportive cognitive-behavioral therapy. I approach each session with a commitment to offering practical solutions within a nonjudgmental and safe space. I want to emphasize that therapy is a comfortable haven where we can explore even the most challenging topics with openness and understanding.

My overarching objective is to guide you through a transformative journey marked by growth, introspection, and insightful revelations. By fostering a collaborative and empathetic relationship, I aim to create an atmosphere conducive to positive change. I eagerly anticipate the opportunity to embark on this therapeutic journey together, facilitating your path toward healing and personal development.

What you can expect from sessions with Tani Foger, Ed.D, LPC

In our sessions, I hold the fundamental belief that change is a possibility for everyone. Often, individuals find themselves entrenched in certain mindsets, requiring guidance to navigate towards a more favorable personal outcome. Our internal dialogues, whether positive and encouraging or negative and discouraging, play a pivotal role in shaping our feelings and behaviors. I am committed to the idea that altering one's thoughts, beliefs, and attitude can bring about positive shifts, influencing not only emotions but also behaviors.

I firmly believe in our capacity to modify unhelpful thoughts and behaviors, fostering the development of effective coping strategies to address current challenges and enhance overall well-being. Utilizing cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), our sessions delve into the intricate interplay between emotions, thoughts, and actions, aiming to empower you with insights that lead to positive outcomes.

It is my perspective that, at times, improving the quality of life doesn't necessarily require changing external circumstances; rather, it involves taking control of one's perception of those circumstances. Together, we will navigate this journey of self-discovery and transformation, working collaboratively to empower you with the tools to manage challenges, cultivate resilience, and enhance the overall quality of your life.

Tani Foger, Ed.D, LPC's experience working with the Jewish community

My extensive experience working within the Jewish community has been profoundly rooted in my personal and academic journey. As a proud member of the Modern Orthodox community, I have been deeply immersed in its ethos. My educational trajectory reflects this commitment, as I attended day school from Kindergarten through High school, mirroring the educational path of my children and grandchildren.

My academic pursuits led me to earn a doctorate in Jewish Education with a specialization in Supervision and Administration from the Azrieli Graduate School of Yeshiva University. This advanced degree has equipped me with a comprehensive understanding of the unique dynamics within Jewish educational settings.

Professionally, I have served in pivotal roles in several yeshivot, including North Shore Hebrew Academy, Yeshivat He’Atid, and The Idea School, where I contributed as a school psychologist. This role allowed me to engage with students, teachers, and parents, fostering a holistic approach to education that aligns with the values of the Jewish community.

Beyond my work in educational institutions, I have also been involved in facilitating communication and parenting workshops for Footsteps. This experience has deepened my understanding of the diverse needs and perspectives within the community and has further enriched my ability to provide meaningful support.

In essence, my professional and personal involvement in the Jewish community, coupled with my academic background, positions me as a knowledgeable and empathetic resource for those seeking assistance within this cultural and religious context.
