April 21st, 2015

We tend to care for the expensive items we have at home.

Professional Help Vs. Mentor, Rav, or Helpful Person

Mindy Blumenfeld, LCSW, Individual and Couple Therapist
April 13th, 2015

NOTE: THIS ARTICLE WAS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN FOR THE COLUMN A SNEAK PEEK INSIDE, IN BINAH MAGAZINE It does seem so drastic.
I mean, the couple just got married and are having a little issue or two. You don’t need a therapist for that, for goodness sake. A little chat with the Rav, a kallah teacher, a little common sense, a little compromise, and all is good as new.
