Devorah Talia is a wife and mother, who lives in Los Angeles but who’s heart is in Eretz Yisroel. She is a writer, editor, and creative writing teacher. Her passion is writing fiction and particularly writing about women’s spiritual and emotional journeys. She teaches creative writing workshops for Jewish women, young adults and preteens, encouraging them to tell their stories, or make up great ones.
While she likes to learn text and was primarily educated by Litvish teachers, learning halacha, mussar and machshava, she is thrilled to be learning at the Nexus School and rediscovering the deep Torah concepts that first inspired her to become religious over twenty-five years ago in Yerushalayim. Now freshly reawakened, she’s so excited to be a part of this Transformational Torah as she continues to learn and integrate the ideas.
She practices yoga regularly, enjoys hiking, baking challah and blending smoothies. Oh, and soup. She makes a lot of soup for her mishpacha!
She looks forward to connecting in her role as a mentor
Chana has experience as a professional life coach for general, health and financial issues and is certified in NLP. She was also a holistic psychotherapist (MA) and included many techniques in her therapy, including play, sand, music, art and photo therapies. Recently, she has learnt to specialize in trauma, PTSD, anxiety and crisis using various modalities, including SE, seefar CBT, IEMT, EMDR. She is excited to be part of this mentorship program and believes that the work of Rebbetzin Tamar Taback is life-changing and even life-saving in the trying and challenging times that the world is going through. Chana has experienced the content as grounding and settling. She feels that when one goes through the proper ideas and stage of the avodas (service of) Hashem meant for her, the Jewish woman feels accomplished and at peace with herself. Chana aims to develop comfort and trust between her and her mentees as this is a vital component of the therapeutic process. Chana has named her practice “matzpen” which is a compass, a tool that shows a person where they are now but doesn’t tell them where or how to go in their next steps. That is up to the mentee, and she hopes, with Hashem’s help, to be a helpful guide.
