My mission is to inspire you to be your best self and live an extraordinary and satisfying life full of supportive relationships, intimacy, love, creative expression, authentic communications, a thriving career, mental and emotional wellness, and a healthy balance of work and pleasure.

The approach I have developed has proven highly effective for couples with communication issues, creative entrepreneurs undertaking new endeavors, and men 22-35 years-old with existential, career, intimacy and “failure to launch” issues.

Individual clients have reported that I am skillful at quickly identifying core wounds, tracking emotionally corrective experiences, reframing narratives and providing immediate solutions to help release traumas and ameliorate depression and anxiety; couples have reported greater understanding, compassion, ease and intimacy.

I truly enjoy helping individuals and couples cultivate meaningful and happy lives and am honored to be able to serve both in my private practice and public classes.

Je propose également des séances de thérapie en Français. N’hésitez pas à me contacter pour prendre rendezvous.

“Ira Israel is one of the most creative thinkers I know. With his insight, combined with his deeply compassionate heart, Ira hits it out of the park with How to Survive Your Childhood Now That You’re an Adult: A Path to Authenticity and Awakening!”  ~ Jai Uttal

How to Survive Your Childhood Now That You’re an Adult weaves together the wisdom of reflection, the beauty of art and the rigor of clinical practice. The wealth of ideas and practices in this illuminating work will be of benefit to all of us welcoming a new way of perceiving that has the power to transform our individual and collective lives.” ~ Shauna Shapiro
