If you’re seeking insight, practical tools, and the genuine feeling of being heard and understood by a therapist, you’ve landed in the right place. I take pride in embodying all three of these characteristics and strive to incorporate them into my therapy work. Whether you’re grappling with relationship challenges or facing personal struggles, I aim to shed light on your dilemmas with clarity and wisdom. My approach involves offering practical skills and tools to navigate these challenges, all within an atmosphere of empathy and understanding.

I wear multiple hats as a therapist, life coach, and educational rabbi (as opposed to a pulpit rabbi), and it’s from these three disciplines that my therapy practice is shaped. As a therapist, I will guide you on a journey of self-discovery, exploring motivations for behavior, delving into family of origin influences, and fostering compassion toward oneself and others. As a life coach, I will assist you in designing practical steps toward your goals through action-focused exercises and reading assignments. As a rabbi, I provide you with a deeper spiritual perspective on life’s struggles and the nature of the self—all in an open and non-judgmental manner.

In a way, my therapy practice mirrors my personal life journey. As an individual, husband, father, and grandfather, I have learned the art of navigating these diverse arenas, and it has been through this that my therapy practice and ability to relate to people of all of life’s experiences have become richer. My father of blessed memory was a custom tailor, and I have always similarly seen myself, except that instead of custom-designing suits for the body, I customize therapy to the unique contours and nature of the client.

I chose to become a therapist because it’s a natural calling for anyone committed to personal growth—an approach that has defined my entire life. Working as a therapist at Council for Relationships, an institution known for its multidisciplinary approach to therapy, aligns seamlessly with my unique therapeutic style that integrates therapy, coaching, and counseling through the lens of human spirituality.

Beyond my therapy practice, I oversee a Jewish ethics institute, indulging my passion for ethics and morality. In this capacity, I teach and mentor individuals seeking personal growth. Though my involvement in playing classical saxophone and clarinet has diminished over the years, music is still very much in my blood, and perhaps especially so, having grown up in Liverpool, England, the home of the Beatles!
