Batya Rotter PhD

Clinical Psychologist

ABOUT

I work with children, adolescents and adults who face difficult life transitions, depression, anxiety and trauma related symptoms. My developmental training and clinical experiences have taught me to recognize and engage the need for individuation, autonomy, mastery, confidence and respect that we seek during the challenging phases of our lives.

I believe that therapy is both a place to explore feelings, relationships, and past events, as well as a supportive space to practice new thoughts, ideas, and behaviors. Sometimes I can help you reach your destination by gaining skills and insight to independently solve previously insurmountable challenges. Other times I can help you accept, mourn, heal and grow from problems that cannot be “solved.”

My approach to therapy is integrative, which means I conceptualize cases and work with each client to tailor a program that integrates different treatment modalities (psychodynamic, CBT, DBT, and mindfulness practices). For those of you who are new to therapy, I always try to demystify the process so that you can be in the drivers seat. I welcome open communication about how therapy is progressing and encourage you to co-create treatment goals.

In addition to my private practice, I work in the public sector (Kupaat Cholim Clalit) as a child and family therapist. I live in Jerusalem with my husband and two children.
