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.
Leigh Bar-Yakov PsyDClinical Psychologist,
I provide individual counseling for a wide range of issues as well as parental guidance and support.
Parenting or working with children can be a fulfilling, wonderful experience. But often it is confusing, difficult, and frustrating. Even with the best intentions, it’s overwhelming when parenting efforts seem to fail over and over again. Parents are surprised and filled with guilt when they can’t find their love for their children, lose control, or just want to just give up.
I can help. Along with a doctorate in psychology (Psy.D.), I have over 20 years of combined personal and professional experience working with parents, educators, mental health professionals, children and adolescents. I specialize in the challenging child, anxiety, aggression, cultural adjustment, learning and behavior issues in children and adolescents. I provide individual counseling and personalized parenting consultations as well as educational courses and workshops to individuals and groups in person, online, and by phone.
Through my private practice, I support individuals and help parents and educators deepen their attachments with their children and students, as well as understand their developmental needs. My goals include helping individuals deal with the challenges of life and to give parents and educators the guidance needed to raise responsible and caring children without becoming overwhelmed by this often confusing and seemingly daunting task.
