ABOUT

I believe therapy should be accessible to everyone in need.  Given the unique challenges we are all facing today, feel free to contact me about a range of therapy options, including online and teletherapy. I also offer subsidised therapy to those in financial distress. 

A bit about me and my approach:

Many of us struggle with painful feelings such as anxiety, self-doubt, shame and guilt. Often we feel ashamed of our experiences and suffer in silence or simply avoid situations that are painful. Our relationships can suffer, we miss out on important life opportunities and we can lose a sense of who we are. My focus is on powerful transformation in my clients' lives and their emotions rather than short term symptom relief. My goal is to empower clients, providing them with tools to creatively overcome their difficulties and build authentic and meaningful relationships. 

My approach is integrative. Much of my work involves process-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) models, such as ACT, which aim to build psychological flexibility - letting go of old, ineffective solutions and approaching our painful experiences in a new way.   This includes processes such as living in the present moment, the ability to shift perspective, a compassionate approach to oneself, connection to one’s goals and aspirations and the ability to take effective action when faced with challenges. My work is also strongly influenced by  Emotion-focused therapy (EFT) which focuses on processing emotions in a deep and productive way.

 I qualified as a psychologist in Australia (MA Clinical Psychology) and later moved to Israel. Since then, I have worked in the school system and in private practice with adults, adolescents, couples and families. With over 15 years of experience and ongoing professional development, I have repeatedly seen clients overcome the most negative of experiences to live vital and satisfying lives.
