Gital Wolf Poupko MA

Expressive Arts Therapist

ABOUT

I am an experienced creative arts therapist, specializing in drama therapy, therapeutic writing and storytelling. I work with children, adolescents and adults of all ages. I see individuals as well as groups. To me, every client is unique. I must earn his/her trust, and I am attuned to his/her particular pace, needs, strengths and vulnerabilities. Thus, we may incorporate various techniques, such as Gestalt, guided imagery, mindfulness and authentic movement within the sessions. I believe the therapeutic process can activate the imagination, creativity, playfulness and healing potential inherent in every human being. My main areas of expertise include: loss and bereavement, anxiety, stress management, life transitions, depression, interpersonal skills, self esteem and wellness. I have worked extensively with youth and adults experiencing learning disabilities and special needs. I am also trained in sex therapy, focusing on female sexuality throughout the life cycle.
I am an observant Jew, an avid student of Jewish texts, and particularly sensitive to the needs and preferences of Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox clients. Born in the US and having made Aliyah to Israel as an adolescent, I am fluent in both English and Hebrew, and have a special place in my heart for immigrants (Olim) of all ages and backgrounds.
I am moved anew witnessing each client’s progress, and feel privileged to play any part in a human being’s growth, renewal or healing.
