Why I chose to be in the helping profession

Jewish Therapist in Queens, NY

I use powerful, evidence based methods that help my clients diminish symptoms of depression, contend with and eliminate anxiety, and improve self-esteem. My approach enables my clients to enjoy deep, satisfying, and secure relationships with others, to refine their character traits, to take risks, to overcome limitations, to rid themselves of negative thinking and self-defeating thoughts and beliefs, to eschew anger, resentment, and blame while finding the courage to ask for what they want and need in an honest, direct, and loving way. My work with clients allows them to achieve their goals in a timely manner and leads to greater fulfillment, meaning, focus, and ease in life.
In addition to earning my Masters Degree and License to practice Clinical Social Work (LCSW), I have studied Family Therapy at The Ackerman Institute for the Family. I utilize Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) when working with couples and individuals who struggle with shame and emotional pain. And I draw strongly upon the work of Dr. David Burns, who is a pioneer in Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and has developed TEAM-CBT which offers over 50 powerful methods to untwist one’s thinking and rid oneself of negative thoughts and feelings such as depression and anxiety.
