Janice Starkman Goldfein is a clinical social worker who has been practicing psychotherapy for over 50 years, the last 35 of them in private practice. She has been published professionally on the subject of trauma recovery. She writes and speaks about marital and family relationships.
She was raised in Toronto and is proud to be a member of the third graduating class of CHAT. Though she resented all the dikduk exercises at the time, she is grateful for those teachers, nearly all Shoah survivors or Israeli shlichim, who gave her the gift of Hebrew language.
She currently resides in Southfield, Michigan with her husband of 52 years. Her children and grandchildren are in NY, DC and Philadelphia.
