Experienced with communities across the entire spectrum of Orthodoxy.
What's been stopping you from reaching out for help?
Many frum Jews seeking therapy prefer to work with an Orthodox therapist. However, sometimes it can be uncomfortable to see a therapist within your own community. You may worry about bumping into them at shul, at a simcha, or at school PTA night. Or maybe you are uncomfortable with the possibility of seeing your neighbors in your therapist's waiting room.
Maybe you are a parent of young children, and it's hard to get out of the house to see a therapist every week - not to mention the cost of extra babysitting. Or perhaps you are just too busy between work and other obligations to have the time to go back and forth to a therapist's office.
If so, teletherapy can be the solution. I offer online video therapy sessions, bringing the session to you in the comfort of your own home. You can see me on your own time, on your own schedule, without having to worry about privacy, commuting, or childcare.
Research shows that teletherapy is equally as or more effective than traditional in-person therapy. Some people even find that it's easier for them to open up and relax when they are in their own environment. Not having to rush back and forth to the therapist's office can mean that you are more relaxed for your session. Taking a few minutes in your own home before each session to identify your goals, and afterwards to process the session, can increase effectiveness of therapy.
I have over four years experience working with the entire spectrum of Orthodox clients, including Modern Orthodox, Yeshivish, and Chassidish. I am experienced with clinical issues specific to the frum population, including:
- anxiety or OCD symptoms about mikvah, kashrus, and other halachic issues (scrupulosity)
- shidduchim, engagement, and marriage
- parenting in the frum world
- stressors related to Yomim Tovim
- baalei teshuva (transitioning from secular to religious)
- transitioning from more to less religious, or transitioning from one community to another
