I don’t know about you, but I found being engaged one of the most challenging periods of my life. There was so much to take care of, and so much to get used to. Worst of all, I had to learn an entirely new area of halakha that involved so many intimate and vulnerable details. I was overwhelmed, and as a young bride, when various delicate issues came up, I felt I had no one to turn to for support.
I decided to become a bridal counselor because I don’t want other brides to feel that way. I want to help brides navigate Taharat Hamishpacha in a way that’s right for them, confronting the challenges it may bring up and connecting to its beauty and mystery. Having watched the marriages of some of my closest friends fall apart also motivated me to help couples get started on the right foot. A little information and understanding can go a long way toward building a strong foundation for a lasting, happy marriage.
I am certified by Nishmat and the Religious Council of Gush Etzion. I am also a certified self-defense instructor and have training in childbirth education through Childbirth International, giving me a rich background in female physiology, psychology, and empowerment.
I work with brides from diverse religious backgrounds. I adapt my program, both in length and in content, to the needs, wishes, and interests of my students.
