About Aliza Scharf Bendov

Aliza has sat with life's deep existential questions for as long as she can remember. She has committed time to the sole experience of spiritual study, but found the experience to provide fractions of the depth she had been seeking.
She longed for an authentic outlet for application that would continue her own quest but also include the healing journey of others. She then went on to embark on her professional journey completing her bachelors and masters degrees in the field of social work. She found this to be the most direct and humble approach to counseling and confronting human suffering through the lens of the psychological, social, biological, and spiritual.
Since completing her masters degree at the NYU School of Social work in 2007, she has completed advanced clinical training in modalities including adolescents, family systems, psycho-dynamic, and hypnosis.

She has also completed a four year intensive training in a healing modality called Nondual Kabbalistic Healing, an approach that includes healing of the wounded ego as well as unification with the oneness of reality.

Aliza is passionate about her work as a psychotherapist and healer and considers this a calling that she was meant to fulfill. She considers this position of service to be a deep honor and joy. Aliza also considers her journey as a wife and mother to have served as her greatest teacher.

Aliza has published several articles on themes of spirituality, Judaism, and healing and is the author of

A Jewish Holiday Reader; Lessons on Healing from a Psychotherapist's Perspective.
