Asher Epstein PsyD

Clinical Psychologist, Supervising and Training Psychoanalyst

ABOUT

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.
