I don't think of myself as a Christian Counselor. I have no degrees in divinity. I have read parts, but not all, of the Bible. If you are like me, you search for truth and meaning in your life. You ask yourself, "What does God want me to do?" What if God wants you to do what YOUR heart tells you to do? It seems to me that the real question for Christians is "Do I believe that God has my back?" That is what I struggle with. No matter how much evidence I see in my own life that God is present, I get fearful. I'm afraid God will let me down. If that fear invades your mind too, then maybe we can talk it out. What I know is that psychology and the mind are only half the truth. The other half is the spirit and faith.

I strive to meet clients where they are at in their faith journey, and incorporate solid Biblically based principles into the therapy process. In addition to referencing the Bible, I also recommend books and materials that are also helpful to meeting my clients needs written by Christian authors who also apply Biblical principles in their works. Prayer and spiritual growth are also incorporated into the counseling as well.

Even as Christians, and good Christians, we cannot make suffering go away. Being humans, we inevitably have to tackle the dark side of the human condition, perhaps struggling with our thinking processes, perhaps growing up with traumas in our families of origin, perhaps experiencing depression, anxiety, marriage conflicts, or something even more serious. As long as we're in this body, we’ll experience sufferings. Downtrodden, we want to rely on God’s grace to pick us up. And one way to access God’s grace is through holistic counseling – a safe place where we can gain new perspectives, shine new lights on our situations, feel lighter, more confident, and ready to move forward with life

I am a Christian and I can help a client take a biblical approach to counseling as I believe that God wants us to live life to the fullest. Frequently people feel guilty or sinful for wanting more out of life and I offer the proposition that life is to be savored and enjoyed and that one can be happy in their faith in God. I will pray with my clients if they wish.

Offering support and counseling under the guidance of Christ's word, your therapist will work with you to connect the principals in the bible with your personal life. You'll benefit from a reduction of symptoms, and a renewed relationship with Jesus and yourself. I believe that by allowing ourselves to ask Christ to help us with our problems, combined with spiritually focused, problem solving counseling, you can begin to find a renewed sense of purpose, spirituality and inner happiness.

As a practicing Jew I am able to offer counseling services that will align with the practice of Judaism. I am quite aware of the needs of the Orthodox community and of the importance of the concept of shalom bayis. I will help you restore that feeling through the use of standard counseling techniques. This is best done in an office situation, although it can begin online or via the telephone.

Why is it so hard to find a good therapist? Finding a therapist that has similar beliefs and values as you can be disheartening. I am a therapist who is also a Christian. I specialize in working with youth ages 3-25 who have experienced something stressful like a divorce, bullying, self-harm or abuse. I also work with adult relationships, and grief and loss. I practice from my values and beliefs, but use my knowledge of human behaviors to help families and youth. Spiritual components are mainly client-directed. Don't hesitate to call today to see if we are a good match!
