About Simcha

2016_headshot_bwI have come to believe deeply in the resilience of people — in their ability to address old wounds, to learn to communicate and interact thoughtfully rather than reactively, and to create healthier relationships with themselves and others.

It is this fundamental belief that guides me, as I help my clients explore painful experiences and distressing setbacks, and consider new scripts for their lives.

My focus is on my clients’ strengths, on their capacity to change and grow, and — with the appropriate support — to discover their own solutions and direction.
