Licensed in Israel
I'm a general adult psychiatrist with extensive experience in various fields of psychiatry. I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings in several countries. I have an integrative approach to treating mental illnesses: I have studied the biological and psychological aspects of psychiatry in depth. Before immigrating to Israel I spent years working in the UK in senior positions. I hold an MSc in Psychodynamic Developmental Neuroscience and have completed several psychotherapy courses. In my clinical practice it is very important for me to maintain respect for my patients' choices regarding their treatment and to work with them collaboratively.

Psychodynamic TherapyPsychodynamic therapy is a form of therapy that focuses on the unconscious mind and how it affects behavior. It works to help people understand and work through past experiences and feelings that may be causing difficulties in the present. This type of therapy encourages individuals to explore their emotions, relationships, and behaviors in order to gain insight into their current difficulties. It can help individuals better understand themselves and their motivations, and gain insight into how past events have impacted their current lives. People tend to develop defense mechanisms when faced with challenges in life. Defense mechanisms may keep painful feelings, memories, and experiences in the unconscious. A few common defense mechanisms include: denial, repression, and rationalization. Psychodynamic therapists encourage people to speak freely about their emotions, desires, and fears. Being open may help uncover vulnerable feelings that have been pushed out of conscious awareness. According to psychodynamic theory, behavior is influenced by unconscious thought. Once painful feelings are brought forth and processed, the defense mechanisms are no longer needed and a person in treatment can start changing unhelpful patterns when coping with life’s challenges.
