Hi! I am Aryeh (pronounced AR-yay.) I am a therapist licensed in New York and Texas. I help people understand and cope with a variety of mild, moderate or severe life circumstances and/or emotional, behavioral or cognitive concerns. I specialize in trauma/PTSD and have extensive training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. I have also trained in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), narrative therapy and EFT (Emotionally-Focused Therapy). Additionally, I treat anxiety, stress, grief, low self esteem, personality disorders and building effective boundaries with family/relationships.
People have the drive to be emotionally healthy with themselves and their loved ones. Therapy can often help achieve these goals. My counseling style is warm and interactive, I believe it is important to treat anyone with respect and dignity, to empower them and instill confidence in a compassionate manner. No two problems are ever exactly the same, so I make it my personal objective to listen very carefully to each person and in a very open and non-judgmental way. I always do my best to understand what each situation feels like when looking out through their eyes. I believe in being client-centered and supporting client’s where they are at (with a pinch of humor thrown in). It is important for me to include the client in the treatment planning process and help monitoring success.
It takes courage and bravery to take that first step towards change, if you are ready to take that first step I am happy to help guide, support and encourage along the way. I look forward to working with you and helping you create a life full of happiness.

I joined Betterhelp in May to help with some anxiety. The first counselor I was paired with was disastrous, and I nearly left the service until I was given the option of pairing with another counselor. Aryeh's profile resonated with me, so I reached out, and let him know about the previous experience, and that I was willing to give Betterhelp a second chance. His response was prompt, and he outlined what his commitment to his clients is. He has helped me address a long standing grief issue, checks in with me via the messaging platform, and we have a standing weekly appointment. He is kind, compassionate, and practical. I am grateful beyond words, and highly, highly recommend Aryeh.

I would literally recommend Aryeh to everyone I know. He has helped me so much and has been so patient with me. He is the best hands down.

Aryeh is a great counselor, he genuinely cares.
I had changed my counselor twice, and wasn’t too satisfied, but I stuck with Aryeh after speaking to him.
He is helpful, and initiates check ups through messaging couple of times a week- which I think is great, that he shows he is approachable.
I would definitely recommend Aryeh for anyone who is looking for a good listener, and helps you navigate through the process!
