Ever felt overwhelmed by stress? Paralyzed by uncertainty? A loss of direction? Whatever your issues, psychotherapy can help you learn who you are, what you're looking for, and how to push past insecurities and vulnerabilities to reach your full potential. As a psychotherapist, my initial goal is to make you feel comfortable and validated. Everything else we accomplish will follow from this basis. Once treatment begins, I will blend supportive and insight-based psychotherapy with practical perspectives and techniques, using this approach to help you cope with everyday challenges and see how they relate to long-standing behavior patterns.

As a psychotherapist, I draw on experiences in the corporate, academic, and educational sectors, as well as on general life experience, to provide you with insightful, culturally sensitive treatment. Treatment will help you articulate your questions, clarify your confusion, and find a greater sense of purpose and peace of mind.

Specialties: trauma, abuse, depression, anxiety, dual diagnosis issues, career change, and life transitions, as these affect people at all levels of mental health, from severely mentally ill to very high functioning. I speak Yiddish and Hungarian. For more information, visit my website at www.rivkahkaufmanpsychotherapist.com
