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.
Linda Libby LCSWClinical Social Worker
I am a clinical social worker and the co-founder of Alternative Solutions: A Mental Wellness Center. Alternative Solutions started in New Jersey in 2000, and we recently moved to Jerusalem. We treat clients face to face, individually, as a couple and/or in a group, and we use tele-therapy (on-line counseling) for our clients abroad.
I have over 30 years’ experience treating clients dealing with mental health, habits and addictions, and relationship issues. I graduated with my MSW from Yeshiva University. Thereafter I studied at the New York Society for Ericksonian Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy, and the Jane Parsons-Fein Institute for Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy. I also completed a life coaching course through the MentorCoach training program.
I offer Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy coupled with Motivational Interviewing and Solution-Focused Techniques. These skills ensure that my clients receive therapy that is geared to each person’s individual need and where they are in the change process.
Alternative Solutions provides guided imagery and self-hypnosis training to those dealing with depression, phobias, anxiety, panic disorder and habit cessation, (e.g. giving up smoking, nail biting etc.)
