About My Clients

I see my clients as superheroes, no less. Even in the most challenging of times, they strive to be the best versions of themselves! Seeking professional help is an act of resilience and strength. It is putting yourself in one of the most challenging places for human beings to be in – a place of vulnerability. To me, it is remarkable to me that you are here, that you are willing to reach out and try to better your life. Thank you!

My Background and Approach

I am an agnostic, Jewish, Israeli woman, living in Georgia. I hold a Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Northcerntal University, a Certification in Thanatology from the Association for Death Education and Counselling. This means I am qualified to work with individuals, couples and families who cope with grief, whether it's due to a death of a loved one, or other meaningful loss. I am Counseling and I am a master practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, which means I pay very close attention to your language, and mine. My therapeutic model of choice is Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). This means, that my job is to ask you questions, that will lead you to your desired outcome, discovering and using your strengths and resilience.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Though I am agnostic, I am very well versed in Judaism, being born and raised in Israel. I am committed to and passionate about equity and social justice. I am LGBTQ+ proud ally. I believe that we all have all the resources we need to be the best version of ourselves, and yet sometimes we need some help discovering it. My questions will be around your best hopes, your most desired outcome, your strengths. I also believe it takes enormous amount of strength to put ourselves in a place of vulnerability and appreciate those who do so. You are the Superhero, I hope you'll let me be your sidekick.
