one suggestion would be to contact the shalom task force....if they themselves don't have therapists to treat abuse, they will know who to refer to.

another suggestion is the Takanot program at Mt. Sinai SAVI. it's free and geared towards frum people. (you can look up the number online).

also, try looking up jsafe.org I don't know what kinds of services they have, but they might be able to link you to someone competant.

i'll try to come up with more ideas.....

oh, rabbi blau, if he's still at yu, was EXTREMELY helpful and sensitive....that's something else to look into.

good luck, let me know if u need more ideas (ie, when it isnt so late and my brain isnt so fried)

I use EMDR with trauma and abuse. Your friend can check out their website and see if he/she is interested: emdr.com.

I know a therapist who specializes in people who were abused as children. I don't know if this helps, but if you want I'll give you his number.

I am not at all offended. I know EMDR sounds like hocus pocus. However, the results speak for themselves.

i have been to sondra gross, she is supposed to be really good, but wasn't for me personally (my own issues with finding a therapist) SAVI-Takanot, as mentioned before, is also a good program to look into. other frum therapists that deal with s abuse include
bracha beer
lisa twersky
atara malach
marcia kessner
frum woman who does emdr: chaya mermerstein
i don't have their numbers, but these are just some of the few out there...unfortunately, it's not so uncommon!

I know someone who used Sondra Gross and found her very helpful. Also, there is also a frum psychiatrist who is a female and that may also be a good resource for help.

I have a really, really good therapist. He lives in Israel but calls from an American phone # so it is not long distance. His name is Rabbi Josh Mark Phd. For contact info and to get a feel for him, please visit his website of counselingexcellence.com. His honesty and warmth and caring, and our resulting bond than makes up for our relationship not being face to face . he is also very reasonable . Please check him out.
