In the gospel of Matthew, Jesus states “If your eye is sound, your whole body will be full of light.” This simple statement guides my approach to counseling. The light exists, and we sometimes need help to improve the soundness of our mental and emotional “eyes” to let more light into our personal awareness and influence our feelings, thoughts and behavior. I respect the sacred and unique way that each person experiences a relationship with God, especially during periods of mental, emotional, or relational distress. From my own study of the Bible, I am continually impressed by the applicability of Christian values and truth to issues of mental, emotional, and relational health.

As a Christian, I consider it a calling to be seeing you. I see each person as created in the image of God. To me, that means that they were created to be creative, just as the Creator is. They were meant to be able to think and to make decisions. As a Christian counselor, I wish "shalom" for you, i.e., peace. That is peace within and also peace in relationships. If you are not a Christian, I see you as worthy of dignity and justice.

I shall never foist my beliefs onto you. But I am immensely curious about your beliefs, and I am very comfortable with allowing you to explore and discover what it is that you truly believe. And, my being an Orthodox Jew has provided me with wellsprings of strength and wisdom that I am comfortable sharing with you, when these could be of help to you. To be a competent therapist, I believe the person you work with must be able and willing to allow you to explore all parts of your self - and faith is one more part of you.
