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.

Devorah Schendler PhDClinical Psychologist
It is a brave decision to go for therapy and I have great respect and admiration for all of my clients who take that enormous step into my office and toward improving their lives. It is very important to me that my clients feel safe opening up and understood by me, so I work hard to establish a positive, non-judgmental, and trusting relationship with them. I use varied approaches to help my clients. My initial goal is to provide concrete tools that can help my clients feel immediate relief. Each person is unique and I work collaboratively with my clients to figure out what “works” for them. My long term goal, for those who are able and interested, is to get to the root of the problem and understand what patterns, relationships or beliefs may be causing distress in my client’s life. We work to understand these patterns and figure out ways to make gradual changes that can bring significant relief.
Prior to making Aliyah, I had extensive experience as a therapist on college campuses both at Fordham University and Yeshiva University and I enjoy working with young adults. That being said, I have significant experience with all age groups. I help clients who are suffering from depression, bipolar, anxiety, social issues, relationship concerns, stress management, trauma, loss, illness, grief and much more. As a clinical health psychologist, I have a specialty in working with clients who are suffering or whose family members are suffering from illness. I strive to provide hope, meaning, and healing to clients in their time of darkness and confusion. I am also a strong believer in the mind-body interconnection and work from that perspective.
I see incredible strengths in each and every one of my clients and my ultimate goal is to help them recognize those strengths within themselves so that they can lead productive, satisfying and meaningful lives.
