Frequently Asked Questions

What is Nafshi?

Nafshi was co-founded in 2017 in Dallas, TX, to promote wellness in the Jewish community, emotional, spiritual, intellectual and spiritual.

Rabbi Dr. Tzvi Hersh Weinreb helped launch Nafshi as its first clinical and spiritual advisor.

Nafshi has offered workshops for over 300 participants to build small wellness communities, including Jewish Meditation, Parenting cohorts, Painting and Torah nights, Nature Hikes, Krag Maga and Yoga training with spirituality.

Who are the Nafshi therapists?

Our team has seasoned clinicians, mostly licensed in the US, from licensed clinical social workers to clinical psychologists, as well as a US army chaplain trained for clinical treatment of war trauma.

Will my therapy be free?


Everyone working with a Nafshi therapist will have some financial responsibility for therapy.  The subsidized rate for those affected by war trauma can be as low as 50, 100, 150, or 200 shekels.  In the event that a client's financial circumstances change,  full session rates are typically an amount of 450 shekels.  


Will I get a man or woman therapist?


From years of experience it is clear that the most effective mental health professional is one who is properly trained clinically, irrespective of gender.  However, we recognize there are sometimes cultural feelings on the part of the client and are ideally offering options for both male and female therapists, though space may be limited.


Why is it important to receive therapy?


Having support from a licensed and trained mental health professional is a good way to protect one's health and enhance wellness regardless of background.  Outcomes are not guaranteed according to research and clinical literature, because therapy is both an art and a science.  The "art" aspect has many factors that contribute to outcomes, including the rapport built between therapist and client.  The "science" aspect is the brain's ability to heal via the creation of new neuropathways that enhance the mind and help the body.
