I am an empathetic listener with a positive attitude towards life. My work is my passion and I keep up to date on new therapeutic methods. It is a privilege for me to walk alongside my clients as they journey toward better lives. I've worked extensively with people in crisis, including those struggling with suicidal feelings, as well as those struggling with more mundane issues such as self-esteem.

Clinical & Organizational psychologist

Roy Kamienchik

As a therapist I create a warm and safe environment. The therapy sessions become a unique, and personalized space. In this space I do my best for you to feel understood, validated and be able to bring your own unique outlooks and terminology in the process of healing, coping with hardships and growing. I aspire to assist the people I see to gain better awareness and deeper insights into their hardships, suffering, patterns of behavior and thinking. My approach is also integrative in the sense that it is collaborative. Namely, I strive to help my clients bring their own passions, ideals an inner world terminology in the therapy, and in doing so having the agency in leading their process of growth. Master in Science in Clinical Psychology & Social-Organizational Psychology.

WHAT WE SAY TO PEOPLE CONCERNED ABOUT THE THERAPY PROCESS

First and foremost, you can expect to be heard and understood on a deep level. The beginning of therapy always consists of developing meaningful, accurate and insightful understandings of the current issues you are facing. This may take some time, as we are profoundly wedded to and soothed by the power of the familiar. Even if it’s good, what is new can be difficult. As an active, involved therapists, our goal is to help you look at your life more clearly, to see how coping patterns and styles of relating to yourself and others were once exactly what you needed in order to survive, but these now hold you back from your present life. Your basic personality will not change, but small, yet extremely meaningful modifications can create an entirely different life without having to create an entirely different person. Getting better, regardless of diagnosis, centers on finding your inner voice, gut reactions, and then learning to follow them in a constructive way.
