After resisting therapy for years, I could not be happier that my wife and I chose to see Zev.His down-to-earth manner and straight shooting is just what we needed.He has helped us see and discuss issues that were driving us apart and hurting our relationships with our children. Zev taught us how to communicate better with each other, which makes a big difference in daily family life.Although I started off a doubter, I feel like a better person, husband and father now.Thank you Zev!

I’m so glad that I found Zev. He has really helped my partner and I to examine ourselves in an open and honest way that is supportive so that we can make positive changes and heal ourselves.I recommend Zev to my friends who are looking for a therapist because he’s someone who can really help you and who will not hurt you or waste your time. He incredibly insightful, warm, focused respectful and helps you to understand the root causes of your issues and the nature of your behavior patterns. And he’s prepared to give suggestions based on your situation and how you want it to change. I’ve seen three other therapists in my life and he’s by far the brightest and most helpful.

Zev saved our marriage! His laid back approach, his timing of questions, his understanding of each of our gripes allowed him to propose solutions that actually worked. Thank you Zev.

I asked my husband if it would bother him for me to say honestly that our time with Zev had saved our marriage. He told me I’d have to come up with something else – because he had already said so! Zev’s insight regarding our differences, whether due to upbringing, gender, or life experience, was invaluable. It is a testament to his abilities that a favorite saying in our home now is, “Zev would be so proud!” When we came to Zev, neither knew if our marriage could survive; with Zev’s patience and understanding, we not only survived, but we are thriving.

Zev is a very talented therapist. He listens intently, and is quite perceptive about things that may not be obvious to the client. If you are going to see someone to work through some issues, Zev is the go-to guy.
Both of us have greatly benefited from Zev’s skills as a counselor, individually and as a couple.His approach is thoughtful and pragmatic, and his insights are presented with compassion and good humor.He encourages listening and communication in session and afterwards, and he provides guidance about working through day-to-day issues.With his help we have become more empathetic towards each other, and more understanding of our vulnerabilities and triggers.The tools and resources he has given us have been extremely helpful in building a strong relationship.

Our experience with Zev was great.With his help our communication skills have improved and we have a greater understanding and appreciation for one another. While it was hard work on both our ends, the experience was great, and our relationship thrives because of what we learned about one another. Zev has a great sense of people and the ability to quickly evaluate who is who and what is what. He’s not a “feel good” therapist. He searches for the root(s) of the problem(s) and goes to work trying to solve whatever the issue(s) may be. He does not take sides and encourages participation from both parties and is TOTALLY unbiased. He is skillful at getting his clients to take an honest look from the outside in, which in our case was extremely helpful.

When we were considering couples therapy, I was worried about what we would actually get out of it. After all, I felt like we knew what the problems in our relationship were, and we had been trying for years to fix them without success.What new idea would a therapist have to offer? The answer turned out to be both simple and profound.In short, Zev helped us get below the surface. While he was willing to listen to the specific things we fought about he always pushed us to look deeper into our relationship, at what was driving these problems in the first place. He helped us stop focusing on the details of what we were fighting about, and focus instead on the underlying issues in our relationship. By letting us see why we were doing the things we were doing, it gave us the power to make real changes in how we relate to each other. This, in turn, gave us the tools we need to deal with the new problems as they come up.I won’t claim things are perfect now, but the helplessness I felt in the beginning is completely gone.

Zev helped my husband and I through some very challenging times.He listened to what each of had to say and was able to point out how each of us contributed to the ups and downs of our relationship. Zev also gave us ways to better communicate and move forward.Over the years when our relationship needed tweaking we would go back to Zev without having to rehash all that had come before since he already knew our situation.I would recommend him to all couples that want to work on their marriage no matter how big or small the issues.He listens, he is fair and honest. Thanks Zev.
