In addition to my knowledge and experience with CBT, I facilitate clients' understanding of the "parts" of their own system and how they interact using IFS .
I work with adults who are seeking to better cope with life's challenges and looking for support with their self-growth. You may be experiencing symptoms of anxiety or depression, have a low sense of self-worth, want to more effectively manage stress, or identify as being "highly sensitive". I view therapy as an opportunity to uncover and resolve self-limiting beliefs in a safe, supportive and collaborative environment. I enjoy helping my clients expand their "toolkits", while developing self-understanding, self-compassion, and connection to their own values, strengths, and wisdom. I also provide support to other therapists.

I am the owner and operator of Margarita Rabinovich & Associates. I believe that most of us decide to seek help through psychotherapy when we have painful feelings or destructive impulses that cause difficulties in our lives and the lives of others we care for or love. Most individuals are affected by periods of discouragement and hopelessness, feeling disconnected, numb, distressed, unable to function or anxious. You are not alone. Many mental health disorders can be episodic and often is a response to a way of life that does not align with our more profound sense of meaning and authenticity or to unexamined early traumas.
