Dr. Shoshana Levin Fox Ed.D., Counselling Psychology

Psychologist, Play Therapist

ABOUT

I am a Licensed Psychologist and a Registered Play Therapist, specializing in play therapy, a child-friendly form of emotional therapy. Trained in North America and then settled in Israel since 1992, I have worked with young children for over 30 years in English and in Hebrew. Expert in the field of play therapy, I provide a non-threatening and non-stigmatized setting in which children under the age of 10 can express their feelings verbally and non-verbally, and from this experience begin to change emotionally, behaviorally and socially.

It is always a delight to watch children who have been experiencing emotional and/or behavioral difficulties begin to grow and change in the therapeutic playroom. In the emotional safety of the play therapy room, children find their strengths, and their confidence begins to grow. Many presenting symptoms fade naturally as the child’s strengths emerge. Because play is the natural language of the child, play therapy can be effective with a wide range of childhood difficulties: abuse and trauma, selective mutism, behavioral disorders, social difficulties and many more.

Parents are the most important people in any child’s life. And so an important part of my work with your child is to provide advice and consultation to help you troubleshoot problems in your child’s daily life, together to develop new strategies for problem-solving with your child, and to expand your “tool box” of communication strategies to help you to help your child through the challenges of everyday life. I welcome your questions.
