Mika Smith PhD, LCSW

Clinical Social Worker, Behavioral Specialist

ABOUT

I specialize in working with Anglo teens and young adults to:

  • improve relationships and coping mechanisms with teachers, parents, and friends,
  • ease adjustments to Israel’s culture and education system
  • relieve stress and tension over anticipation about army service and national service
  • cope with personal anxiety issues and mental health distress

I use different techniques including motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, and focused psychotherapy on working on eliminating unwanted behaviors or patterns in your life. My methods are practical, goal-oriented and individually tailored to your circumstances.
