ABOUT

At any point in life, one can find oneself feeling very sad, nervous, scared, or somehow stuck, trying to cope with upsetting experiences. Loss, trauma, or illness can leave one feeling overwhelmed, as can transitions such as starting college, getting married, or becoming a parent. Expressing feelings in therapy, in the context of a supportive relationship with an empathic and skilled therapist, can contribute to a meaningful process of working through troubling issues.

I am a bilingual licensed clinical psychologist, with a Master's Degree in Developmental Psychology (1983), a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (1995), and training in the treatment of trauma (1997). I have worked in the U.S. and Israel, primarily with adults (ages 18 – 90+), in my private practice as well as in settings such as a university counseling center, community mental health centers, and since 2007 also with Holocaust survivors and their families at Amcha.

With over 35 years of experience, I have helped many people find new ways to understand and express the strength of their feelings, and to feel better, heal, and progress in life. Due to the pandemic I now also conduct therapy via Zoom, video or phone, as well as in my ground-floor office, in accordance with health regulations.
