It’s hard to tell someone else your deepest secrets. The truth about your inner voice, your desires, your struggling relationship. You’re left feeling alienated and unsure if you will ever find the kind of true connection that you crave. You know deep inside that relationships and intimacy are meant to be wonderful…but something is holding you back: Fear of rejection. Fear of judgement. Fear of not being enough. Fear of not knowing what to do. Fear of being alone. I'm here to help with this sense of disconnection and despair. I believe we all deserve to love and be loved- and especially, to love ourselves.
When we meet, you will find a cheerful and affirming ally who will help you to uncover and express your authentic self, in order to help you create richer, joyful, more meaningful relationships with your body, your partner(s), and yourself. I offer pragmatic and compassionate guidance as well as solution-focused tools for growth.
Therapy can be intimidating, even scary. Don't worry- I let you set the pace as we explore (individually or with your partner) what is holding you back and identify tangible ways to bring you closer to the life and relationship you desire. I am also available to help you process the trauma of antisemitism and 10/7. Call me today to schedule a time to chat.
