Jewish Family Service of Bridgeport has announced that it has affiliated with Allison B. Spitzer, M. A., to provide clients with life skills coaching and support for troubled children, teens, twenty-somethings, individuals and families with problems at home, school, or work.

  “We are pleased to have Allison join our team to offer fresh, alternative approaches to our clients,” said Harvey Paris, agency director.  “She has a successful private practice that brings today’s focus on life skills coaching and creative expression together with standard therapy. Her approach will definitely complement our services. Allison gets right to the point, and has served JFS’s constituents for many years as a teacher and Temple Board Member and knows our communities well.”

  “I look forward to work with JFS. When people reach out to a long established agency, they know they’ll get help,” Spitzer said. “I’m thrilled that JFS recognizes the value of expressive therapies and coaching as well as their place in mainstream settings.”

  The integrated techniques offer clients practical coping tools. Adults who are depressed, disappointed or living with confusing or painful circumstances can benefit. Children respond especially well to creative therapies. Spitzer draws from her training and research in communications and expressive arts therapies at Northwestern University and began using this approach in 1975.
