My name is Yitzchak. I'm a U.S.-licensed Counselor and Psychotherapist. I've worked with kids, teens, adults (single, engaged, married and divorced) and families - in yeshivas, agencies, hospitals and private practice.
In Israel, as Clinical Director of "Kids for Kids", I've helped terror victims and educated our community about trauma, abuse and other issues confronting us.
In private practice, I deal with:
Olim, baalei teshuva, students, working people
Relationship issues & skills for couples - married & dating
Recovery from abuse or trauma ( physical / emotional / sexual )
Overcoming depression / anxiety / anger / low esteem
Parenting & family issues
Substance abuse, alcoholism & addictive behaviors
Life fulfillment & career issues
My approach is eclectic, which means using various tools that best fit the people and the issues in the room. The list includes Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Psychodynamic, Family Systems, EMDR, Solution-Focused, Reality, Mind-Body (SE) and other "evidence-based" therapies. Sessions are for 1 hour 15 minutes, making them more practical and affordable.
I earned an M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Rider University, and a B.S. in Engineering from M.I.T. Iím Licensed in N.Y. State as a Mental Health Counselor (LMHC).
I studied in Kollel in the Mir Yeshiva in Yerushalayim and worked as a mashgiach in Yeshiva Aish HaTorah.
