My name is Tani Burton.  I am a clinical social worker in private practice, as well as a rabbi and educator. I live and work in Jerusalem.

I received my MSW from Wurzweiler, and did two years of fieldwork in case management at Jewish Family Services.  While there, I was trained in child-centered play therapy, geriatric case management, and domestic violence (through the Shalom Task Force).  After a few years’ pause to finish semicha, I served as the therapeutic director of the Netsach program in Jerusalem for at-risk young men for three years.  In addition to providing individual and group therapy for the students, I was responsible for the whole therapeutic agenda, staff education, and supervision of junior counseling staff.  I have also worked at Tikva seminary with at-risk young women.

At the beginning of 2009, I launched my own private practice.  Besides my practice, I have co-facilitated groups for religious sexual predators at Shalom Banayich in Bnei Brak, where I received training and supervision from Dr. Yael Idisis, a clinical criminologist from Bar Ilan University.  I have also undergone formal institute training through the Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy with Dr. Teria Shantall, who was a student of Viktor Frankl’s.

All of my work has been clinically supervised, from the outset of my career until today.

The experience I have gained in these roles is extensive.  It has been eye-opening, sobering, and even encouraging.  I want to share what I know with you via this blog with the hope that, with a greater amount of information and professional perspective, the Jewish community around the world will have more options for health, effectiveness and success.

I am available for therapy consultations of all types, including:

  • Individuals
  • Couples
  • Families
  • Personal growth and development
  • Anxiety reduction and breathwork
  • Coaching through the dating process

If you would like to schedule an appointment, please feel free to call me at 052-717-1947.
