If you are dealing with issues related to your present life, and/or working through issues from the past; relationship concerns, self-esteem issues, blocked creativity, trauma, depression, anxiety; we can work on that stuff. In 4 decades of practice I've seen people work through many major life challenges. I work with individuals and couples.
I've been a therapist since the early 1980s when I was in my early 20s. I was trained by a group of therapists who were drawing from a variety of approaches. That means I am trained to work with people using a variety of modalities, including talk therapy, creative therapy, body-centered therapy, cognitive therapy, and hypnosis. I am also trained as a Career Counselor. My tool kit is well equipped to provide each person with a unique therapeutic experience.
Human being suffer, each of us in our own ways. It's my job to assist people in dealing with, managing, healing, coming to terms with, their suffering. Once we meet online and start working, you'll determine the direction of your therapy so that you can benefit as much as possible from the experience. It is a courageous act to seek help. I look forward to beginning our work!

I really appreciate the support, the suggestions and direction I get from Baruch during our sessions. I always feel empowered and capable after bringing an issue (usually that has to do with another human) that I feel hesitant to deal with to him. He listens, clarifies my big picture difficulty and gives me new tools or suggestions, while reminding me of what I know and what I have within myself. I can be vulnerable and HONEST with him.
