Reach out to Moshe Norman
The curious paradox is that when I accept myself, just as I am, then I can change.

Why Moshe Norman chose to be in the helping profession
Since I was a young child, I can remember suffering when I saw people in pain. Whether it was a child being mistreated or a couple having a dispute with each other, I had a burning desire to alleviate their pain. I entered this profession to make that dream come true. Along the way, I learned that helping people heal was a whole lot more complicated than I anticipated, but that it was possible. My hope is to be able to help you and/or your family in your healing journey.
Moshe Norman's approach
My approach to therapy is bottom-up. Meaning, we examine early life experiences to understand present-day conflict and suffering. Your past is your present! I help my clients gain deep insight into their past and present life and identify the negative experiences from childhood that are perpetuating pain and suffering in their day-to-day life. Through our work, you will begin to deeply understand yourself and cultivate self-compassion and ultimately, self-acceptance. This, in turn, translates to decreased pain and suffering, and a strong and healthy sense of self.
I also have extensive experience in Family Therapy, which includes dealing with family and marital dynamics. When there is tension in a family due to the apparent misbehavior of one party the entire family is affected. By bringing several parties of a family into the therapy room many of these parts can come together to heal the entire unit, which will result in significant improvement in the party who is acting out.
What you can expect from sessions with Moshe Norman
In our sessions, you can expect to feel deep attunement and gentle care. You can expect to discover insights about yourself that help you understand how and why you operate the way you do. Most importantly, you will begin to experience relief and empowerment as we progress on your personal journey of growth.
