Sha'ari Garfinkel

Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW)

With over 30 clinical years experience, I help clients by offering creative and time-tested ways to address problems such as: Depression Anxiety Life Transitions Grief Trauma Creativity blocks Spirituality issues Life work issues Emotional Aspects of Medical Problems Stress-Related Medical Issues The approaches I use stimulate and engage many parts of the brain thus enhancing your own innate ability to move towards health and wholeness. Modalities include: Counseling Cognitive behavioral Therapy Brief Therapy Behavioral Activation Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Guided Imagery Sound and Music Therapy Mandala Art Therapy Assessments The Bonny Method - Music and Imagery

Often times, traumatic or upsetting experiences get caught in the brain and locked into neural pathways which are difficult to heal. Through EMDR, art and music, we can begin to disentangle these memories and integrate them into your healthier sense of self. Through our work together, you will learn (or relearn) ways to cope, calm, heal and nurture yourself. These skills can then be used on your own to supplement our time together during appointments.

Appointments are in person or via secure video on Breakthrough.com. I do not accept insurance (but will provide you with paperwork you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement if you request it). Rather, I work with you to try figure out a way that you can pay for services by offering cash discounts and sliding scale fees. I am an approved provider with OpenPathCollective.org which offers affordable rates to its members so that may be a good option for you. I accept cash, PayPal or plastic cards.
