Hi! I’m Abby, a marriage and family therapist, psychotherapist, sex educator and intimacy counselor. I work as an individual psychotherapist and as an intimacy counselor and educator in order to assist and support you on how to utilize your strengths and challenges to your advantage in your life. My workshops and lectures are based on basic tenets such as mutual pleasure and mutual giving, safety within the relationship, and respect for one another. I also feel blessed to work closely with Rabbanim both in Israel and in the US, as well as Yoatzot Halachah, who have a deep understanding in the areas of Halacha surrounding Intimacy and Sexuality. I truly believe in people’s capacity to evolve and make changes in their life. The work is not always easy, but from what I have seen, it is always worth it.
