Frum Therapist in Lakewood, NJ

I work from a trauma-focused perspective. Trauma in this context doesn't only refer to life-threatening events such as a car accident or being mugged. It also referrs to any event that was too difficult to handle at the time that it happened. When a traumatic event occurs, a person's system is overwhelmed and cannot make sense of that event. Most mental health issues are directly caused by unprocessed traumatic events. With a trauma approach, the question to ask is not, "What is wrong with you," but rather, "What happened to you?"

Some examples of traumatic events that affect people even later in life might include:


Emotional or verbal abuse

Parents having a personality issue or being overwhelmed and not able to parent effectively

Death of a parent or sibling

Illness in the client or in a family member

Physical or sexual abuse

Having a frightening panic attack

To move past these unprocessed memories, I use a variety of powerful techniques including EMDR, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and ego-state therapy. I work with the client to formulate goals and a focused plan to work through the issues at a pace that is right for the client.
