Rachel Cohen MA

Clinical Psychologist

ABOUT

As a rehabilitation psychologist and neuropsychologist, I help people cope with life-changing
events such as accidents, illnesses and traumas. In addition to my rehabilitation work, I am a
CBT therapist with additional training in medical hypnosis and EMDR; I have helped those
suffering from post- traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, panic, obsessive-
compulsive disorder and attention deficit disorder. My broad-based training allows me to
take a holistic approach to therapy; I believe that the therapist must be sensitive to the
needs and individualities of the client while remaining goal-oriented and realistic. The
ultimate objective is to help the client gain understanding and learn strategies that will
improve quality of life.
I am originally from the U.S. and made Aliya in 1994 after completing a BA from University of
Pennsylvania and an MA from Brooklyn College, both in mathematics. Here in Israel, I
graduated with honors from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem with an MA in
rehabilitation psychology. I have worked in the neuropsychology department of Shaarei
Tzedek hospital as well as in the rehabilitation department at Hadassah. I’ve also taught
Neuropsychology to future occupational therapists. In addition to providing therapy, I
currently perform neuropsychological and autism evaluations for all ages in Hadassah
hospital and in my private practice.
I work in both English and Hebrew and see clients in Jerusalem and Efrat.
