I am a clinician with experience working with a diverse population in various settings including hospitals, schools, and clinics; teaching psycho-educational workshops, facilitating groups and providing both individual and family therapy. I have gained extensive methods of practice in guiding and coaching emerging female adolescents and young women through a journey of positive development and independent sustained empowerment.
One of my key objectives is to apply a holistic integrated approach of mind, body and spirit. Each client is encouraged to connect to her core and gain deeper understanding and awareness of her natural strengths, weaknesses, predispositions, as well as how to interpret and integrate her life's narrative and historical background in a positive and productive way. Utilizing individualized therapeutic programming, I interpret symptoms like sadness, internal conflict, despair and chronic physical pain as the psyche's way of trying to communicate meaningful data to propel us forward on our life's journey. My ultimate goal is to inspire and empower my clients to develop their own healthy coping mechanisms and tools to independently deal with all of life's daily challenges and stressors.
I believe that a healthy support system is just as important as the therapy itself to ensure successful integration and transition at all stages. Therefore, I travel from Israel to the USA every summer to be available to meet with pre-seminary students and/or respective parents in NY and NJ who might be interested in finding out more about available therapy in Israel during the Seminary year.
