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.
Elisheva (Elie) Hoffman PhDClinical Psychologist
I am a clinical psychologist, licensed in Israel and the USA. I earned my B.A. from Hebrew University, and my PhD from Long Island University. I was born in the USA, made Aliya with my family at the age of 7, grew up in Israel, served in the IDF, and am fully bi-cultural, with a strong connection to both identities.
I trained and worked in NYC, including teaching academic courses in psychology and supervising trainees, working with diverse populations treating a wide range of issues in a variety of settings, including general hospitals and community clinics. My most recent position was as a staff psychologist at Columbia University’s Counseling and Psychological Services, and I am currently affiliated with Tel Aviv University Psychological Services.
My therapeutic approach is collaborative and relationally oriented, and integrates elements of other approaches, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness. This may sound like a lot of confusing jargon, so I will not expand further here, but will happily do so during our initial meetings should we decide to work together.
