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.
Yaakov Jonathan Ugowitz MA, PhD, LMHCSchool Psychologist, Mental Health Counselor
I believe that the job of a therapist is to help their client make the changes in their life that will enable them to achieve their goals, and be the person they want to be, doing the activities that are important to them. In order to do this, it is important to help the client understand what they are THINKING, FEELING, and DOING in the here and now that is interfering with them accomplishing their goals, AND help them to make effective changes in those domains to move towards their goals. To this end, in addition to traditional Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques, it is extremely important to teach the client about the neuro-biological and psychological processes that are maintaining their current state, and to learn what can be changed, and what needs to be accepted, and how to move on despite uncomfortable situations and feelings.
