Avishai Rozen , LMSW— 

A bit about my story


Working with adults and young adults in various settings, including intensive day treatment programs and outpatient clinics, offered me the experience of working with those who are struggling with a variety of mental health conditions. I have gained experience in helping those with anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, personality disorders, challenges in life transitions or relationships, and identity and existential questions. My approach is psychodynamic, while blending psychoanalytic thought as well as mindfulness and eastern philosophies into my work.


I find that the foundation of the therapeutic process is in the connection between the therapist and the client. I aim to facilitate a safe space and a trusting relationship with you, in which all aspects of the human experience can be explored; nothing is taboo, and all that arises is accepted.


With my background in music, I ask questions with an open heart and mind, and make space for that which is beyond words. As an immigrant, I understand the many challenges that arise from being in an unfamiliar place, far from home, or feeling alienated from the dominant culture for any variety of reasons. I am fluent in Hebrew and practice bilingual therapy.
