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.
Howard (Haim) Rubinstein PsyDClinical Psychologist
I have worked for over 25 years providing treatment to children, teens and their families. I also treat adults in general psychology. I emphasize goal-directed short term therapy that makes sense to the client.
Much of my work has been in the identification and treatment of those struggling with ADHD and other Learning Disabilities. My emphasis is often on grappling with the emotional impact of the disorder and on daily functioning. This includes teaching self-management and social skills that allow children and youth to take more responsibility and to overcome some of the obstacles presented by their condition. Finding the right fit between independence and parental support and involvement is always important. I have a private practice in Raanana.
In addition to individual and family therapy, I run social skills groups for children and teens. The group therapy involves teaching concrete social skills and then practicing them in games and role plays with video feedback. The participants work cooperatively as a video crew to document each other practicing the new skills and then receive video feedback on their attempts to use the new behaviors.
I lead workshops for teachers, parents and mental health professionals on promoting social development in youth. I previously worked for four years with the Special Education Services of the Tel Aviv School District and prior to that was the Program Coordinator for Child and Adolescent Services at Quest HealthCare, P.A. in Houston, Texas.
