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.
Joy Epstein MSWClinical Social Worker, Marital and Family Therapist
Perhaps you’re feeling overwhelmed, sad or challenged by the things that life has thrown your way. I can help you to feel better about yourself and your relationships.
With over 25 years as a clinical social worker/psychotherapist, my practice has focused on adolescents, young adults, and couples. As a clinical supervisor for six years in Nefesh B’Nefesh I specialized in Aliyah issues at different stages of life. I also enjoy working with parents of adolescents, individually and in parenting groups, helping them navigate the rough waters of their child’s developing independent selves. I have completed training programs in Family Therapy in Vancouver, BC and Psychoanalytic Self Psychology, at Tel Aviv University, a humanistic form of psychotherapy. In this approach I create a safe, compassionate, attuned relationship where you can discover your own unique qualities. I use complimentary modalities to help you to attain your personal goals. Our work together will help to strengthen your sense of self and build your self confidence. This will enable you to live the richer, more fulfilling, and balanced life that you deserve. Call me for a phone consultation and to set up an appointment.
