About

Jewish Therapist in Brooklyn, NY

Hi, my name is Menachem Kiwak, but I'm better known as Mendy. I earned my bachelor’s degree from Touro College SLE and my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from Long Island University. I am also an adjunct professor and Academic Fieldwork Coordinator in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program Department of Behavioral Science of Touro College School of Health Sciences.

I have nine years of experience in crisis intervention and I am presently involved in researching what motivates individuals to restructure their lifestyle from the way they were raised.

I thoroughly enjoy working with clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, and marital issues. I also work with helping parents - parent their autistic children. My clients describe me as genuine, passionate, and actively engaged. Throughout the therapeutic process, I strive to provide a warm, safe, and collaborative environment he will help you find balance, fulfillment, and joy in your life.
