Why Taibke Hyman chose to be in the helping profession
The reason why I have chosen to pursue a career in counseling is rooted in my belief that we are all partners on a journey of self-discovery and growth. I find immense fulfillment in delving beneath the surface and uncovering the deeper, less superficial aspects of an individual's identity. My passion lies in "shining a light" on the positive aspects of a person that may be obscured by negative self-talk or limiting beliefs. By helping individuals gain a more comprehensive perspective of themselves, they can unlock their true potential and lead a more fulfilling life.
Witnessing the transformation of individuals as they progress through counseling is the most rewarding aspect of this profession. It brings me great joy to see individuals become more self-aware and productive as they learn to navigate the obstacles in their lives that once held them back. For me, the most exciting part of counseling is when a person begins to recognize their own inherent worth and realize that their limiting beliefs about themselves are just that: beliefs, not facts.
My passion for counseling began at a young age when I noticed that I had an unusual ability to see beyond negative behaviors and identify the core positive qualities of a person. I didn't realize at the time that this was a unique gift, but as I grew older and became more interested in psychology, I began to understand the value of being able to see the positive potential in people. It is this gift that I bring to my work as a counselor, and I am grateful for the opportunity to use it to help others reach their full potential.
Taibke Hyman's approach
In my practice, I take a holistic approach to therapy, utilizing a combination of various modalities such as Motivational Interviewing, EMDR, Parts work, Somatic based therapy, and others, tailored to the individual needs of each client. My approach is grounded in the belief that every person is unique and requires a customized treatment plan that addresses their specific challenges and goals.
I believe that to truly help someone, it's essential to consider all the factors that impact their mood and overall quality of life. That's why I take into account a person's lifestyle, nutritional choices, and other lifestyle factors when designing a treatment plan. By adopting a more comprehensive approach, I aim to help my clients achieve greater well-being and lasting results.
I pride myself on my ability to listen deeply and work collaboratively with my clients. My goal is to help my clients identify their strengths, challenges, and goals, and then work together to develop strategies to overcome obstacles and achieve their desired outcomes. Drawing on my experience of being married for 40 years, raising a family, and facing my own personal challenges, I bring a wealth of insights and empathy to my work as a therapist.
I believe that therapy is a gift that you give yourself. By taking the time to explore your thoughts and feelings, and learning new tools and techniques to manage life's challenges, you can improve your overall well-being and lead a more fulfilling life. That's why I call my practice "Off the Couch" because I appreciate the myriad of modalities that have evolved and researched since the traditional style of "laying on the couch" and talking.
What you can expect from sessions with Taibke Hyman
In my practice, I focus on working with adults who are motivated to make positive changes in their lives. I believe that a willingness to be open to new possibilities is the first step toward growth and transformation. When working with my clients, I strive to build a collaborative relationship based on trust and mutual respect. Together, we work towards achieving the client's stated goals, meeting them exactly where they are on their journey.
I understand that every person is unique, and therefore, requires a customized approach to therapy. That's why I work closely with my clients to develop a tailored treatment plan that is specific to their needs and goals. My clients report feeling challenged, supported, and validated in their therapeutic journey with me.
During our sessions, I provide a safe and non-judgmental space for my clients to explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. As a therapist, I see myself as a guide or facilitator, helping my clients navigate through the ups and downs of life. I firmly believe that my clients are the drivers of their own growth and change, and I am there to support them along the way.
Typically, we meet weekly to ensure that we are making consistent progress toward achieving the client's goals. In each session, we will work collaboratively to identify any obstacles or challenges that are preventing the client from reaching their desired outcome. By working together, my clients can gain a greater understanding of themselves and their experiences, leading to greater personal insight, growth, and lasting change.
Taibke Hyman's experience working with the Jewish community
In my practice, I have the privilege of working with both secular and Jewish communities. I believe that every individual's spiritual journey is unique and deeply personal. That's why I strive to provide a safe and supportive environment where my clients can explore their beliefs, values, and experiences in a way that feels authentic to them.
As someone who has personally embraced an observant Jewish path after being raised in a secular environment, I understand the unique challenges that come with living a Jewish lifestyle. That's why I appreciate drawing on the overlap of traditional Jewish sources and psychology to help reinforce my client's personal needs and growth.
In my work, I often draw upon Jewish teachings and traditions to provide a deeper understanding of my client's experiences. I believe that the wisdom of our tradition can provide a powerful framework for healing and growth. At the same time, I recognize that every individual's needs and beliefs are unique, and I work collaboratively with my clients to find the approach that works best for them.
Whether you come from a secular or Jewish background, my practice is a safe and welcoming space where you can explore your spirituality and find deeper meaning and purpose in your life. I look forward to working with you on your journey toward greater personal insight, growth, and healing.
