Get Help Israel’s aim is to verify the accuracy and updated information of the name, contact details and credentials of the therapist; and that the therapist is not subject to any licensing restrictions. Get Help Israel seeks to verify the factual accuracy of the information about the therapist at the time that he/she is listed in the directory, and every year annually at the time of renewal of the registration. Get Help Israel is not responsible for any change of credentials of the therapist in the interim period following such registration and/or renewal of registration of the therapists in its directory.
While Get Help Israel seeks to verify the factual accuracy regarding information pertaining to the therapists listed in its directory, Get Help Israel does not confirm the truth or accuracy as to what the therapists have represented to Get Help Israel or what they have requested to be listed and made public on the Site. Persons considering contacting any of the therapists listed in the directory are urged to conduct their own independent investigation and evaluation before retaining his/her services.
Asher Epstein PsyDClinical Psychologist, Supervising and Training Psychoanalyst
I have been working as a clinical psychologist for 24 years, first in the U.S. and then in Israel. My doctoral dissertation was on the psychological adjustment to immigration, and so I am well familiar with the challenges facing new immigrants. I teach in many different psychotherapy training programs including Haifa and Tel Aviv University. I currently divide my time teaching and supervising therapists and seeing patients in my Zichron Yaakov practice. I see patients both in weekly therapy and psychoanalysis. My approach is based upon a humanistic form of psychoanalytic psychotherapy called self psychology, which attempts to revive a person’s damaged sense of self which is at the root of so many human problems, including anxiety, depression and relationship issues. I try to create a warm and supportive atmosphere in which a person can grow and utlimately lead a fulfilling life.
