When spirituality is so central to the way we live our life, and we need to seek out healing and wholeness, it is incredibly helpful to have someone who deeply understands the power and the importance of those beliefs, and how the love of God shapes our lives. As a therapist who is a follower of Jesus, I hold those beliefs as sacred and always center my work over the unconditional Love and Peace that God pours out for us. In the refining, loving, peaceful center of this Love, together we work to uncover the healing and wholeness that is promised to each one of us.

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.

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.

Often we can improve our lives by learning better communication skills, changing behaviors, and learning to resolve conflict. But then, sometimes life's issues are bigger than what we can change. We feel powerless, and we need to find meaning, comfort and hope in our faith. Nurturing faith through scripture and prayer can be an important part of therapy. Since Adam and Eve fell out of paradise humans had the ability to experience shame, self-hatred and hatred towards others. I believe that therapy is about healing hatred. Therapy is about finding compassion for oneself and for others, grounded in Christ's redemption for us to open our hearts for forgiveness and love.
