Rivkah Kaufman, MS.Ed, LMHC Brooklyn, NY 11209, USAEver felt overwhelmed by stress? Paralyzed by uncertainty? A loss of direction? Whatever your issues, psychotherapy can help you learn who you are, what you're looking for, and how to push past insecurities and vulnerabilities to reach your full potential. As a psychotherapist, my initial goal is to make you feel comfortable and validated. Everything else we accomplish will follow from this basis. Once treatment begins, I will blend supportive and insight-based psychotherapy with practical perspectives and techniques, using this approach to help you cope with everyday challenges and see how they relate to long-standing behavior patterns.
As a psychotherapist, I draw on experiences in the co…

Permanent Temporariness, Part II – Parshat Bereishit
Very. A modifying word. It comes from the latin veritas, meaning truth.1 Aside from the Sesame Street song about the letter 'V' where the word 'very' is used umpteen times,2 we use it to describe adjectives. How big is it? Very big. How far is it? Very far.
I found a fascinating discussion in the Midrash about the use of the word 'very' in this week's parsha, Parshat Bereishit. At the en …
Permanent Temporariness – Sukkot
Huh? Could you say that again? Well, I actually almost called this piece temporary permanence. Or both. Oxymoron city! But this seems to be the most accurate variation to represent the thought. As the late Rabbi Joseph Lookstein once said in a sermon, "the only thing that’s permanent in life is change."1 (Maybe next year we can discuss temporary permanence.)
This theme is alluded to in the mitzvah of S …
Can you please give me some good guidelines on how to deal with peer pressure? I am very affected by what the people around me are doing. I don't know if it's that I'm afraid of people getting angry with me or I need to be the center of attention. I think that that is my most difficult challenge and if I could just not be afraid to be different I would be a much better person.
Most often, issues with peer pr …

In the fall, the Jewish months of Elul and Tishrei begin, and so begin the holiday preparations that wreak havoc on women across the world. Like many religions, Judaism heavily revolves around food. Jewis …
Knock, Knock - Yom Kippur
No, this is not a knock, knock joke, though I wish I had one for the occasion. (I am open to suggestions.)
We have many customs which we don’t always notice though they have been passed down over the years. There is, for instance, a custom to tap (knock) lightly on our chest as we mention a list of actions we've done wrong in the past.1 It is a soft tapping that accompanies the Ashamnu2 (prayer of admission of guil …
Seize the Day; Seize the Year! – Parshat Haazinu
There are some phrases that are so out of place that they demand some kind of explanation. The veritable 'elephant in the room' is crying out to be noticed.
We find this at the end of this week's parsha, Parshat Haazinu. After Moshe's swan song, God calls to Moshe in the 'height of the day'.1 Dozens of times God calls to Moshe but never until this instance, almost the very end of the Torah, i …
