Why I chose to be in the helping profession
Jewish Social Worker in San Ramon, CA
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Human-Animal Interventions Specialist who specializes in working with individuals who have survived sexual assault, childhood abuse, and post-traumatic stress, as well as couples struggling with communication.
I work with individual adults ages 15+ and couples.
I am a Rapid Resolution Therapist. My aim in my work with individuals is to resolve and clear shame, guilt, grief, anger, trauma, depression, anxiety, and chronic pain at their root cause. While many other professionals teach coping skills as a way to deal with what they perceive cannot be changed, I seek to destroy harmful and maladaptive patterns in the mind, stopping unwanted thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, quickly and painlessly. Many individuals that I work with have found traditional and long-term approaches to therapy to be unsuccessful for them.
My aim in my work with couples is to re-align communication. I provide evidenced-based tools and ways of thinking about dynamics within a relationship which have been shown to work when applied consistently and effectively. I am not a professional who points out who is right/wrong or referees arguments. Couples who meet with me commit to learning and practicing new techniques over a total of 4 sessions.
I have a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California and a Bachelor’s degree in religion from the George Washington University in Washington, DC.
I live in San Ramon, CA with my wife, daughter, and cat. I only conduct telehealth sessions.
