Jewish therapist in Florida

Ready to increase the Joy in Your Life? Let’s take this journey together…

Life sometimes feels like a giant game of Jenga! As frum women, we are being pulled in so many different directions. At times the pressure to be a good mom, spouse, employee, daughter, or religious pressures can be paralyzing; a constant frustration. When you focus, you can conquer and succeed in one or two particular areas. However, everything needs your attention to keep the Jenga-Tower-of-Life balanced. There are times when you are doing well and you feel that you are over it, but sometimes it's too much. It all falls to pieces. We often find ourselves feeling exhausted, foggy, and lost as we are busy juggling all the roles and expectations, yet failing to take care of ourselves.

Using an interactive process, I'll partner with you so that you'll feel heard, understood, and noticed. By gaining a greater understanding of how the past traumas affect the present, you'll acquire insight and concrete coping skills to move forward. Finding more balance in life can help you to achieve the renewed sense of motivation and confidence you deserve.

I bring over 20 years of experience working in a variety of clinical settings. I have advanced training in the areas of EMDR, trauma, marriage therapy, domestic violence, and recovery from emotionally abusive or toxic relationships. My practice specializes in women’s issues such as postpartum depression, motherhood, single women, dating, anxiety, depression, trauma recovery, relationship issues, and support during life transitions, as well as couples work.

It is possible to break free of your emotional prison and heal from the past. Perhaps it is time to claim joy in the present and feel hopeful about your future. Feel free to schedule a complimentary 15-minute phone call with me.

I am licensed in New Jersey, New York, and Florida.
