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.
Dovid Lessin MAMental Health Counselor, Marital and Family Therapist
Choosing the right therapist is an important step in your quest for self-discovery and emotional health. Here’s how I can help.
My clinical style is designed to help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and effectively manage the challenges in your life. Through collaborative discussions and an understanding of the steps involved in the change process, I have helped many people discover joy, meaning, and connection, even in the face of great adversity.
My background as an IFS therapist will help me guide you in working with your own challenging parts with compassion, optimism, professional expertise, and hope. I will help you develop a greater ability to understand and manage difficult emotions, to feel calm and generally positive towards yourself and others, and to foster thriving, meaningful relationships with your spouse, children, parents, and friends.
If you are in a marriage that is suffering, I will help you and your spouse create an environment of mutual understanding, effective communication, and respect without resorting to the common tactics of blame, criticism, withdrawal, or shutting down. I believe that connected, loving relationships provide meaning in our lives, and I am committed to helping couples form stronger emotional bonds with one another.
My extensive experience in working with adolescents has given me a deep understanding of the many developmental issues young people face during this critical time in their lives. My training as a certified family therapist allows me to navigate the often complicated matrix of family life, and to provide my clients with a clear vision of how they can regain harmony at home. I work with parents as well, helping them learn the important skills of boundary setting, developmental awareness of their children’s struggles, and how to form empathic connections with family members
Getting the help you need is essential in achieving your personal goals, and finding the right therapist is an important part of that journey. You are invited to visit my website and contact me directly to determine your next step towards greater life fulfillment and emotional well-being.
