ABOUT

I am a bilingual licensed clinical psychologist and the only American board certified pediatric neuropsychologist in Israel and the Middle East. After relocating back to Israel from Saint Louis, MO in 2014, I see local and international patients and their families at my diagnostic and treatment clinic in Raanana. I have extensive experience and expertise in accurate diagnosis of ADHD, learning difficulties, dyslexia, autism spectrum, developmental issues, emotional disorders, behavioral disorders, adjustment difficulties, marital, parenting, and family issues. I strongly believe that in order to provide a personalized treatment plan, accurate assessment is a crucial first step. Using a thorough holistic assessment approach, and the latest up-to-date international assessment measures, I can explain the sources of difficulties, and then provide resources for overcoming them. I am currently the only Israeli provider of COGMED, an evidence based cognitive therapy program for individuals with poor working memory, a common weakness in children and adults who have been diagnosed with ADHD. I have published papers and given a variety of workshops, lectures, and presentations internationally and locally, and consult regularly with educational institutions and organizations. I was recently recognized by my colleagues and have been elected to serve on the board of the American Academy of Pediatric Neuropsychology - the first non-US resident elected to this esteemed board. I am also on the board of GHI.   In addition to individual assessment and therapy services, I run various short term psychotherapy groups. I can provide documentation for American Citizens for insurance reimbursement and have much experience providing documentation for international testing accommodations for standardized exams (such as SAT, ACT, and GRE etc.).  I look forward to working with you, clarifying the source of difficulties, identifying strengths, and helping to determine a path forward for future happiness and success.
