Why Penina Pultman chose to be in the helping profession
I chose to enter the helping profession because I recognized a need within the Chassidic Jewish community for psychiatric providers who are able to fully understand and appreciate the unique nuances of this culture and speak the language. I know that mental health and wellness is a journey that requires deep empathy and guidance, rather than a quick-fix solution. It is my passion to be able to provide this type of support to individuals within this community who may feel misunderstood or marginalized. By fostering a safe and supportive environment, I am able to help clients navigate their journeys toward healing and growth, and empower them to take control of their mental health and well-being.
Penina Pultman's approach
As a psychiatric medication provider, my approach is rooted in the belief that the combination of therapy and psychiatric services can be incredibly powerful for individuals seeking support. To me, it's similar to having a broken leg - therapy serves as the cast, holding the issue in place so that the individual can focus on healing themselves, while psychiatric services serve as the crutches, offering the necessary support for the journey towards recovery. Through a compassionate and collaborative approach, I work with my clients to identify the most effective combination of services for their unique needs and goals. By combining a variety of tools and techniques, I am able to help my clients navigate their challenges with grace, strength, and resilience.
