ABOUT

Is your child or teen suffering from selective mutism, general anxiety, shyness, social anxiety, or emotional dysregulation such as outbursts, anger, sadness, withdrawal or frustration?

I am an expert psychologist, and head the Selective Mutism and Anxiety Treatment Center, based in Jerusalem but treating children and teens throughout Israel (and the world!) I have developed a groundbreaking, effective and empowering treatment for selective mutism, published research and a bestselling book in English and Hebrew – currently being translated to Chinese. I have treated thousands of children with selective mutism, using my cognitive behavioral approach.  I supervise therapists and train professionals in Israel and around the world.

I also treat children with anxiety disorders and emotional regulation issues, using a warm, caring, cognitive behavioral approach. My aim is always to improve the child or teen’s quality of life in his day-to-day experience – whatever gain is achieved in therapy should be reflected in a happier, more relaxed child.
