Lili Goralnick, LCSW-R Monsey, NY 10952, USA I provide a combination of insight-oriented and tool-based psychotherapies in a safe, compassionate and private environment. My approach is both culturally-sensitive and educational, allowing a client to achieve clarity on past patterns and hurts that may be hampering healthy connections in their current life. Clients are empowered with tools from CBT, DBT and the 12-Steps to alter old patterns of thinking, feeling, perceiving and interacting. I will work closely with your psychiatrist, Rabbi, Rebbitzin, kalla teacher, dayan or askan for a well-rounded collaborative approach to your healing. Group therapy available.

Shlomit Liz Sanders, LMFT, CCTP Staten Island, NY 10309, USA
At some point in our lives, each one of us finds ourselves stuck needing some support and guidance to help us reach the next level. As a psychotherapist, I use a collaborative approach helping clients reach their maximum potential by tapping into their strengths and helping them gain the tools they need to successfully overcome their challenges. It's often difficult to make the first step reaching out to a therapist asking for help but in reality it's a strength that should further be developed.

My husband has had a job in finance for around 15 years. He is very good at it and makes a nice living but it is a stressful job and he is under a lot of pressure. He has recently begun complaining a lot and is overwhelmed by work. He took off a few weeks recently and that helped, but only briefly. He is talking about changing careers but I don’t know why he suddenly can’t handle it. He says he just isn’t interes …
I appreciate your column and insights and I would like to get your opinion on something that has been bothering me for a long time. I am afraid to do hagbah. I have only done it once in my life (with a really small Sefer Torah). I should be strong enough but I just have such a fear that I will drop the Sefer. I usually duck out of shul when it’s time for hagbah so that the gabbai won’t approach me. If I do get asked I …

I do suffer from trichotillomania (I pull out my hair). But just to make it clear those who don't know would not be able to tell. My friends know and really don't think about it—it really has no effect on my life. Do you think it is necessary to g …
Mind Your Business - Parshat Vayikra
Everyone makes mistakes. Sometimes there are no victims and sometimes there are some very real victims. If we do in fact cause harm to others, we apologize due to a sense of social or moral obligation to them. We need to acknowledge that others may be hurt because of our mistake. This apology, though, is simply to fulfill a "debt" to the other. We have wronged the other and "owe" him an apology. But what if n …
What is the point of punishment? What is it supposed to accomplish? We’ll look at types of punishment used by parents with children, but first let’s look at punishment as it relates to criminals.
The four most common theories of punishment of criminals are: retribution, deterrence, rehabilitation, and incapacitation. (The Oxford Handbook of Criminal Law, Edited by Markus D. Dubber and Tatjana Hörnle, Part III, S …
Masks and Us – Parshat Ki Tissa/Purim
It is really cool how the weekly Torah reading seems to be especially chosen to correspond with current events, personal milestones or events in the Jewish calendar. Or maybe it is simply our creative ability to find throughout the Torah those messages which are particularly applicable to these events. Or perhaps the Torah is just so full of meaning that we can always find these meaningful correlating …
