Moshe Wax, BA, MA, NCC, LAC

Education: I earned my B.A. from the Talmudic University of Florida with a major in Talmudic Law. I went on to pursue my Master’s Degree at Bellevue University, Bellevue Nebraska, in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, where I earned my Master’s in Clinical Counseling. I am a Licensed Associate Counselor, as well as a National Certified Counselor.

Experience: Over the past few years I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse population, including adolescents, adults and seniors from all walks of life, with all types of mental health challenges, and in many different kinds of settings such as adolescents from single parent homes to seniors with serious mental health challenges. Additionally, I was a Program Counselor for adults and seniors with serious mental health challenges where I facilitated group counseling on a wide range of mental health related issues.

Philosophy/Approach:My approach to the therapeutic process is largely based on Karen Horney’s principal, which is, You need not, and in fact, cannot, teach an acorn to grow into an oak tree, but when given a chance, its intrinsic potentialities will develop. Similarly, the human individual, given a chance, tends to develop his particular human potentialities. I view it as my job, role and responsibility to give my clients that chance that they need and deserve in order to develop and grow into the greatest and healthiest person that they can be. With this in mind, I strive to create an atmosphere where my clients feel safe, accepted, cared for and understood. I achieve this through advanced listening skills, genuineness, conveying unconditional acceptance, and being empathic. Additionally, as a firm believer in a holistic approach to counseling, I cull ideas, concepts and techniques from many theories of counseling, including Person Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Psychoanalysis, among others.

Hobbies: I enjoy spending time with friends and family, exercising, dancing, listening to music, playing music, reading, writing, and connecting with the beauty of nature.
