The JNTI was founded 20 years ago on a deep commitment to help people build lives of well-being and meaning.
Our practice is based on a groundbreaking, internationally-known approach to counseling: Narrative Therapy.
- Narrative Therapy believes people should be seen as separate from their problems. We do not label people as their problems.
- We see therapy as a highly collaborative process and therefore as a unique journey for each individual.
- We view people as experts on their lives. We honor their use of language, their values and their understanding of their experiences.
- Our aim: enabling people to uncover their own internal resources and reclaim their power of choice – creating a better life for themselves.
Through child, adult and couples counseling, varied support groups and workshops, the JNTI has been privileged to help individuals, couples and families overcome challenges, discover new strengths and live with contribution and well-being.
- We are committed to providing high-quality care with a genuine human touch
- We respect the choices of our clients and their confidentiality.
- We strive to safeguard the religious values of the client, within the guidelines of halacha.
Our team is uniquely adapted to the needs of the Jewish community. It is comprised of qualified male and female narrative therapists, marital and family counselors and social workers. All are observant, with a range of religious and cultural backgrounds. Several of our staff also have a background in Jewish education.
