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.
Ephraim Portnoy BSWSocial Worker
My diverse background has given me the ability to help different types of people to better understand themselves, their relationships, and their own unique way of finding their path towards a more satisfying and productive life.
Depending on the needs of each client, I use a variety of therapeutic models, including traditional talk therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Acceptance based therapy such as ACT and Gestalt therapy, which focus on getting to know yourself and accept yourself in order to change.
I have experience in counseling using traditional Jewish ideas and applying that to evidence based therapy. In addition, I have facilitated therapy groups and ran workshops on life and communication skills.
Since each person has a unique, personal expectation of what he or she wants to achieve through therapy, I would be happy to discuss with you how I can best be of help.
