My view of mental health, psychotherapy, and counseling:
My Denver, Colorado, psychotherapy, sex therapy, and counseling practice is dedicated to “liberation” therapy. I help individuals, couples, and families overcome depression, anger, fear, anxiety, shame, and grief and loss that originate from challenging core beliefs, wounds, role expectations, and family dynamics. I also work with children and adolescents. My work is focused on supporting the power of personal growth, relationships, and life transitions.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is a sacred space from which healing and creativity may emerge. I am therefore committed to work that is life enhancing through personal insight and empowerment. Creating trust in the therapy relationship allows a client to share deeply personal history, setting the stage for positive change. I strive to create an environment where my client feels accepted and not judged. When a new client approaches me for therapy, I talk with him or her on the phone and we determine what is necessary for us to work together.
I pay special attention to systemic and multi-cultural perspectives. I am committed to work that honors and validates persons of various ethnic, racial, religious, spiritual, gender, and sexual identities.
A little about my upbringing, childhood, and personal life:
I was born in Israel and immigrated to the United States at age nine. I am a naturalized US citizen.
My parents were Holocaust survivors who sensitized me to issues of oppression and discrimination. My practice is therefore affirming of all ethnicities, religions, and sexual orientations.
As a result of being born in another country, and as a Jewish psychotherapist, I have a solid understanding of immigration, minority issues, and cultural differences. Working with clients in my native language is also one of the unique services I offer.
Why I became a mental health counselor, sex therapist, and psychotherapy professional:
From my earliest memories, I have always wanted to have an impact on people for change.
I remember reading a book in high school that influenced me to be active in working for change and social justice issues.
“Against our Will” by Susan Brownmiller is a book about women and rape that allowed me to see how our culture keeps women in fear and insecurity. As a man, I wanted to make things different.Not only did the book impress me with the oppression of women in our society, but it also gave me an awareness of the history of gender politics, inequality, civil rights, and racial and gay liberation.
When my children were born, I committed myself to work for a better world, that would give my son and daughter the opportunities and choices that would support their full potential. As a result, I help direct NOMAS, an national pro-feminist organization that works for the full equality of men and women. This has also led me to develop a systemic view of women’s, men’s, and gay mental health and a feminist therapy and liberation approach to my work.
I recently collaborated in publishing an article, entitled, “Women and Counseling: A Vision for the Future” in the Journal of Counseling & Development, which outlines a vision for the empowerment of women through counseling.
I also enjoy a history of working with children and young adults and have done so in teaching, counseling and community service.
My education and psychotherapy training:
I earned my BA in Psychobiology at the University of California, Los Angeles.I also have a Master’s Degree in Biology from California State University, Fullerton, and a PhD in Cell Biology from the University of California, Riverside.
I was a research scientist for twenty years before I redirected my career into counseling.
I earned my Master’s in Community Counseling from the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) in Greeley. I also completed UNC’s program in Marriage and Family Therapy.
As I earned my Master’s, I worked in Denver elementary and middle schools as a school counselor.
After receiving my credential, I was a therapist with the counseling centers at Jewish Family Services of Colorado and MDS Counseling Center for a total of six years and then started my own private practice, at its current Denver location.
I am also an adjunct instructor at the University of Colorado, Denver, teaching the course on “Gender and Sexual Orientation” to Master’s level counseling students.
