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.
Dr. Ariel Penkower PsyDClinical Psychologist
If you or a loved one are struggling with any of the following…
-Anxiety/Worrying too much
-Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
-Perfectionism getting in the way of personal or professional growth
-Becoming overwhelmed by decision-making
…I can help!
My name is Ariel Penkower. I am a licensed psychologist with a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Rutgers University. I made aliyah in 2012 after working for four years in a thriving group practice in New Jersey. Since then, I have worked with the CBT Institute of Israel and have developed a growing private practice. I am currently accepting new clients in Jerusalem, Efrat, and via Skype.
My therapy is grounded in the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a goal-oriented therapy approach that offers short-term, solution-based strategies, as well as options for long-term work. CBT understands and addresses the negative thought and behavior patterns that interfere with our functioning and emotional well-being. This approach will teach you how to replace those patterns with healthier, more positive ways of thinking and being.
Throughout our time together, I will work hard to tailor the therapy specifically to your needs, based on a rich understanding of both your history and present concerns. I bring qualities of empathy, optimism, and expertise, key ingredients towards a positive therapy experience.
I work with teens and adults of all ages. Please call me to set up a convenient meeting time. I look forward to speaking with you.

Slavery, while terrible, represented a secure existence. By that, I mean that life was consistent, unchanging, certain. A slave will never achieve great things or recognition on a greater societal level, but he/she will also rarely encounter doubt and anxiety.
