I am a senior psychiatrist and psychotherapist working in private practice at an accessible clinic in the center of Tel Aviv.
I believe in a psychodynamic and integrative approach to therapy, and consider the therapeutic relationship as a key to recovery. I believe in coordination of care in cases in which a patient is being treated by additional therapists (GPs, neurologist, pain specialists etc.).
