If you have made your way to this page, you are probably struggling with a "relationship problem"--either with someone else, or with yourself. This is likely causing you significant emotional pain. Your predicament may have been triggered by a recent event, such as loss or trauma, or may have lingered and festered for years. Your symptoms may vary--you may experience persistent discontent, loneliness, emptiness...; have difficulty finding or sustaining a relationship, or have a spouse who wants you to get "fixed".You may be battling addiction or a destructive behavior that is thwarting your life, but impossible to give up, despite endless attempts.
Are you suffering from disabling bouts of anxiety, which leave you incapacitated, or bouts of depression that make life seem worthless, or worse yet, unbearable? Are you embroiled in a vicious cycle of obsessive compulsive rituals? If so, psychotherapy can definitely help.
Areas of special focus: *Bariatric surgery and obesity * Russian, Hebrew, English--culturally sensitive counseling for issues concerning immigration and acculturation. * Interfaith marriage * Cancer patient and their family. * Eating disorders. * Psychosomatic issues and chronic pain. * Infertility.
