ABOUT

Career Design Counseling Services

Looking for a career change?
Not feeling fulfilled in your current job?
Have you just finished the army/ yeshiva/ sherut leumi and want to study but need guidance?

There are a plethora of career centers that offer “evaluations” who will tell you what you should study or what job you are best suited for. No doubt that approach will attract certain people.

However, I believe in people’s ability to grow, develop and change. I’d like to help you on your path to self-discovery.
Together we can tap into your strengths, interests, dreams and help you plan the future you desire.

I earned my M.S.W from Fordham University in 1995 and have been privileged to work at a number of different social service organizations since making Aliyah over 20 years ago. I’ve had vast experience working with various populations including: children, adolescents, special needs children and adults in numerous and various settings.

My strength: Empowering my clients to maximize their potential and achieve their career/ life goals. Over the years I have expanded my skills in career counseling and coaching which has contributed to my clients’ success in realizing their dreams, aspirations and ultimate goals.

הראי” ה ( R.Kook)
“צריך שכל אדם ידע ויבין שבתוך תוכו דולק נר, ואין נרו שלו כנר חברו
ואין איש שאין לו נר. וצריך שכל איש ידע ויבין שעליו לעמול ולגלות את
אור הנר ברבים ולהדליקו לאבוקה גדולה ולהאיר את העולם כולו”
