I am a senior psychiatrist and psychotherapist working in private practice in 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.).
Main fields of interest include: Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Psychosomatic Medicine, Mind-Body Medicine, Mood Disorders (Depression and Bipolar Disorders), Personality Disorders, Anxiety and Panic Disorders, Stress Management, Adjustment Disorders, Relationship Problems, Vocational and Identity Issues, Adult ADHD, and OCD.
I was born and grew up in the United States, and moved to Israel on my own at age 17.
