ABOUT

To get to know me best is to understand the principle that guides my therapy work with your children. I believe that kids are naturally on their own quest to heal, grow and overcome challenges. Sometimes they and their families need help finding the tools that enable them to lead the happy, healthy and productive lives that they deserve.


Before I made Aliyah a month before Covid 19 entered our lives, I spent 12 years in the San Francisco Bay Area as a Marriage and Family Therapist, providing a supportive, empowering and respectful environment for children and their families who had experienced a variety of difficulties including extreme financial stress, unsuitable living conditions and various and multiple kinds of trauma. We met together in their schools, family homes, homeless shelters, and various other places in their community. Whatever worked best for them. Together we found the tools to help them cope with their current difficulties.


In my therapy work with your child and possibly other family members, we will primarily engage in play therapy. Often times children can't find the words to express their thoughts and feelings as I’m sure you know. It is much easier for them is to express themselves through play. Sometimes incorporating art therapy techniques is also very helpful. Working with your child as well as with you and other family members in family therapy most often speeds the process and helps you all reach your goals faster.


In my work I also use a “client-centered” approach. Because I believe that your child and other family members are experts on themselves and know what they need most, I feel that my job is to provide support to you all on your journey to discover what works best for your child and family. I respect your child and the family and listen to everyone very attentively. I am very curious and I make sure I understand what you all are telling me. And most of all we have fun doing this important work.
