Why Estee Konig chose to be in the helping profession
From a young age, I have been involved in various aspects of the Jewish community, from working in shuls and camps to mental health organizations. Although I found these experiences to be rewarding, I often felt that I lacked the necessary training and tools to inspire genuine change in the lives of those I encountered.
As I faced more challenging situations, such as campers struggling with eating disorders or individuals dealing with the aftermath of traumatic experiences, I realized that simply being a supportive presence was not enough. I wanted to make a lasting impact, one that would extend beyond the time we spent together.
Driven by this desire, I made the decision to pursue a career in psychology. By furthering my education and expanding my knowledge, I knew I could acquire the skills needed to truly make a difference in people's lives.
Through my training as a psychologist, I have been able to provide evidence-based interventions and personalized support to those who need it most. Whether working with individuals or groups, I am dedicated to helping others overcome challenges and achieve their goals.
I am grateful for the opportunity to give back to my community in this way, and I remain committed to using my skills and expertise to inspire real change for years to come.
Estee Konig's approach
As a therapist, I recognize that every individual is unique, and therefore, I maintain a range of approaches to provide the best possible care for my clients. I believe that evidence-based practices are essential in helping clients confront and manage different types of symptoms, which is why I use a variety of cognitive-behavioral techniques and treatments that have been shown to be effective for different diagnoses. By tailoring my approach to the specific needs and goals of each client, I am able to provide personalized care that is responsive to their unique circumstances.
Some of the cognitive-behavioral treatments I use include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Exposure Therapy, which have been shown to be particularly effective for patients with various mental health conditions. However, I also understand the value of integrating different theories and perspectives, which is why I also draw on psychodynamic theories to provide alternative perspectives and help clients gain deeper insight into their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
Ultimately, my approach to therapy is flexible and adaptable, depending on the needs of my clients. By providing evidence-based, personalized care that draws on a range of theories and techniques, I strive to help each individual achieve their goals and live a fulfilling life.
What you can expect from sessions with Estee Konig
As a therapist, I firmly believe that patients should expect to work when they come to me for treatment. Therapy can be uncomfortable and challenging at times, but my ultimate goal is to help clients lead more fulfilling lives outside of the therapy room. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is critical to the success of therapy and I often use our interactions in the present moment to help clients develop effective interpersonal skills and work through their present struggles.
To ensure that my clients are getting the most out of therapy, I encourage them to share their thoughts and feedback with me. If something we discussed in treatment isn't working for them, we have the opportunity to revisit it and modify our approach. Sometimes we even discover that we need to redefine the entire problem, which can provide a fresh perspective and lead to richer solutions.
I strive to create a safe and supportive environment where clients feel comfortable exploring their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. While therapy can be challenging, I believe that the benefits of hard work and dedication to the process can lead to positive change and a more fulfilling life.
Estee Konig's experience working with the Jewish community
As a Jewish therapist, it is important for my patients to understand that my own religious practices and beliefs do not influence my ability to remain nonjudgmental in therapy. Through my experience of treating patients of various religions and backgrounds, I have developed the ability to provide evidence-based treatment to individuals in the Jewish community without any bias or judgment. Additionally, my familiarity with the cultural and religious environment of my Jewish patients allows them to feel a level of comfort knowing that I understand the context in which their struggles have developed.
For me, it is extremely fulfilling to be able to do the work I set out to do by helping the Jewish community. I am fully equipped to face the challenges that they may present, and I am committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for my patients to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Whether my patients come to me seeking help with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or any other concerns, I remain dedicated to providing evidence-based treatment that is tailored to their unique needs and goals.
