Why should I be treated through Kosher Therapy? Why is it a good idea to have a Jewish therapist?

Therapy is an intimate space where a person can talk about the deepest matters of his or her existence. Having a Jewish-observant therapist, who understands and shares your worldview, your lifestyle and your values, is very beneficial for the success of your therapy. With your therapist you will feel comfortable talking about all the aspects of your life.

If I am not Jewish, can I get my treatment at Kosher Therapy?

Of course you can! At Kosher Therapy we have the best professionals from each country, all of them have had vast experience in clinics and private practice, with a variety of patients, being very successful.

Do I have to register before booking a session at Kosher Terapy? 

To schedule a session at Kosher Therapy you do not need to be registered. At the time of schedule we will ask you some basic information and then you will receive an email with the confirmation of your reservation. You will also have the possibility to generate your password to access the patient portal.

Does online therapy work? Does teletherapy work?

Most current research (see source) suggests that teletherapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. The benefits of choosing to get teletherapy with accredited practitioners include: 

  • Time saving, no transportation
  • Have access to your session, wherever you are (home, car, work, vacation, etc).
  • Get access to the best therapist for you, even if he/she lives in another country. 
  • If you move to another country, you can continue your therapy.
  • Greater confidentiality with therapists who do not live in your community.

The professionals working at Kosher Therapy are experienced, licensed and accredited therapists who have been certified by their countries to offer therapy and have been verified by Kosher Therapy.

In what situations do we NOT recommend teletherapy?

Teletherapy can be just as effective as in-person therapy in most circumstances. However, it is not indicated in cases where you are at risk of harming yourself or others. In those cases, we strongly urge you to go immediately to the nearest emergency service or to an in-person psychiatric or psychological consultation. 

What do you mean by "Kosher Therapy"?

All Kosher Therapy professionals are either observant Jews or have a broad understanding of Torah life. All of them have been interviewed in their professional skills as well as in their outlook on Judaism (Hashkafafic). Kosher Therapy also has the support of great and important Rabbanim.

What is each session worth?
