Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

Why Fay Brezel, LMHC chose to be in the helping profession
I am a firm believer in the transformative power of human connection, and in the healing potential of relationships. Whether we are striving to overcome past traumas and resentments, live more fully in the present, or fulfill our potential and create a brighter future, the words and presence of others can have a profound impact on our journey.
As a therapist, I am deeply honored to be able to offer that support and guidance to my clients. I believe that every person has a unique story to tell and that by working together, we can uncover the strengths, insights, and resources that will enable you to achieve your goals and live a more fulfilling life.
My approach is rooted in empathy, compassion, and an unwavering commitment to my client's well-being. Whether we are exploring past experiences, addressing present challenges, or envisioning a brighter future, I will provide a safe and non-judgmental space where you can feel heard, understood, and empowered to take the next steps on your journey.
It is truly humbling for me to be entrusted with the responsibility of guiding individuals on their path toward healing and growth. I am inspired every day by the resilience, courage, and strength of the individuals I work with, and I am honored to play a small part in their journeys of transformation.
Fay Brezel, LMHC's approach
I approach healing and self-actualization with a holistic perspective, recognizing that no single approach or method can address all aspects of our lives. Instead, I believe that true transformation and growth require a multidisciplinary approach that considers our physical, emotional, spiritual, and relational well-being, as well as our financial health.
While therapy is an important component of this approach, it is not the sole or primary solution. Rather, it serves as a safe and supportive space for exploring all aspects of our lives, helping us to gain insight and understanding, and providing us with tools to make positive changes. Therapy can help us to cultivate greater self-awareness, acceptance, and appreciation for where we are in the present, while also supporting us in striving toward our goals and creating the life we want for ourselves.
I believe in fostering an optimal therapeutic relationship that is built on trust, empathy, and mutual respect. Through this relationship, we can work collaboratively to explore your experiences, values, and aspirations, and identify the steps you can take to move toward greater health, fulfillment, and self-actualization. By embracing a holistic approach to healing, we can tap into the full range of our inner resources and create lasting change in all areas of our lives.

I am dedicated to walking alongside you on your journey toward greater self-awareness and personal fulfillment.
Fay Brezel, LMHC's experience working with the Jewish community
I take great pleasure in working with people from diverse backgrounds and lifestyles, as I firmly believe that despite our apparent differences, we share a common humanity that unites us all. That said, I have a particular passion for working with individuals who identify as Jewish, as I understand firsthand the significance and comfort that sharing culture and religion can bring to a healing relationship.
