Soul Esteem: Is Self-Esteem a Contradiction to Humility? There is lots of talk out there about the importance of self-esteem, though many times this is not really understood. The Torah teaches us to be humble and it is considered praiseworthy to “nullify” our will in order to follow G-d’s will.

TORATHERAPEUTICS® – A Torah Inspired Approach To Holistic Growth & Healing
Toratherapeutics® is in my blood, it is what I eat, drink, and sleep. Since before I was a therapist in 1991, I kept noticing so many therapeutic ideas in The Torah and its commentaries, it was uncanny! In my early days of becoming a therapist (1991-1992), I found that religiously observant Jews avoided going to professionally trained therapists for various reasons. One such reason was that secularly educated therapists might be clouded and sullied by foreign concepts, possibly antithetical to The Torah’s teachings. When I kept seeing the “Toratherapeutic” in a Torah verse or a concept, it then made sense to bring the two together, ‘marry them’ in my practice.
I feel a particular mission or shlichus to make therapeutic concepts available to those who need a Torah based and Torah consonant mode of therapy. Over the years, I’ve not only gleaned “m’tzios – finds” in the Torah that are extraordinarily therapeutic, I regularly utilize many of the such concepts to benefit my primarily observant clientele. Hence, I have over the years developed what I call, “Toratherapeutics®: A Torah Inspired Approach to Holistic Growth and Healing.”
