Why Mindy Friedman, LCSW chose to be in the helping profession

While the straightforward answer may be, "because I want to help people," my motivation runs deeper than a mere desire to assist. Undoubtedly, there are various avenues for aiding others—entrepreneurs innovate products to address needs, for instance.

However, my choice to become a therapist stems from a profound love for humanity. I am driven by the aspiration to forge meaningful connections with individuals. My goal is to delve into the intricacies of human nature and to understand and appreciate each person uniquely. I am drawn to the idea of aiding others not just by offering solutions but by empowering them to navigate their own journey of self-discovery. My commitment lies in facilitating others to help themselves.

Mindy Friedman, LCSW's approach

In my practice, I adopt a holistic, collaborative, and non-pathologizing approach to therapy. Grounded in an attachment perspective, my treatment conceptualization is comprehensive, considering the interconnected aspects of an individual's life.

A key component of my methodology is a trauma-informed approach, which seamlessly integrates various modalities such as psychodynamic and relational work, Internal Family Systems (IFS), artistic methods like arts/sand tray, and cognitive-behavioral techniques (CBT).

Recognizing the importance of personal growth, I hold myself accountable to continuous self-improvement. This commitment extends to engaging in my own therapeutic work, seeking supervision, and participating in ongoing training. By cultivating a deep understanding of my own experiences and challenges, I aim to bring an authentic and empathetic "Self" into the therapeutic space, paralleling my dedication to assisting you in uncovering and understanding your own journey.

Mindy Friedman, LCSW's experience working with the Jewish community

As a Jewish woman, my professional focus has been centered within the Jewish community, reflecting a deep appreciation for and connection to my own heritage. Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of working with clients from diverse backgrounds and varying levels of observance within the Jewish world.

One aspect of my work that holds particular significance to me is assisting clients who have experienced abuse or neglect intertwined with their religious identity in finding a sense of belonging within Yiddishkeit. This endeavor is profoundly meaningful, as it aligns with my commitment to supporting individuals on their journey toward self-discovery within the context of their faith.

Notably, a significant portion of my experience lies in working within the Chasidic community. I've received positive feedback for my culturally competent approach, characterized by understanding, support, and the provision of a safe space. Recognizing the unique challenges and nuances within this community, I strive to create an environment that respects and honors cultural sensitivities while fostering a therapeutic alliance built on trust and understanding. My goal is to contribute to the well-being and resilience of individuals within the Jewish community by navigating with them through the intersections of culture, faith, and personal growth.
