ABOUT

Hello, My name is Assael. I'm an MSW, certified couple and family therapist and supervisor. I offer individual, couple, and family therapy online and in my clinic in Kfar Saba. I believe that the two elements of a successful relationship as well as therapy are: Play and full ownership over your shadow (the behaviors and beliefs you usually deny or ignore). It is this Ying and Yang combination that enables a vital, growing, invigorating relationship. I consider myself a systemic therapist and I integrate many different approaches I’ve learned through the years: Relational psychotherapy, The Crucible Paradigm, NLP, IFS, Psychodrama, Improv, EMDR, and Imago. My work is inspired by wonderful clinicians and thinkers such as Whitaker, Schnarch, Real, Gottman, Satir, Perel, Farrelly, Minuschin, Adler, White, and more. “There is no growth in the comfort zone”. Since therapy is all about change and growth, I believe in positive anxiety (Whitaker), where both the client and therapist are playfully challenged to expand their self-and-other perceptions. My style is direct, bold, playful and at times somewhat confrontational. I aim to bring myself authentically in order to create authentic now moments that help create long-lasting change. I believe in practical, bold, clear communication as an efficient way to help people mature.

If you want to understand more about me and my approach, you can:

1.  Read my blog on Psychology Today: https://www.psychologytoday.com/intl/blog/the-other-side-relationships

2. Watch over 100 talks about enriching relationships in my YouTube channel:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXwdZhwQFgUcRQgZoI_L2Uw

3. Listen to my Podcast: http://podcast.potentialstate.com/

Now that you know all about me,  I'm ready to meet. How about you?
