ABOUT

In more than 36 years of work experience, I have been giving face-to-face and online consultations for eating problems (Compulsive Eating, Binge Eating, Obesity,  Bulimia, Anorexia, ARFID), for adults, adolescents, and groups in Hebrew, English and Portuguese. I have been lecturing for post-doctorates and giving workshops for business companies and governmental agencies. In Israel, since 2017, I am also working at KOLI- The Jerusalem Center for Recovery from Eating Disorders and lecturing on the prevention and treatment of Eating Disorders at schools and Mental Health Centers. I am the author of: “Happy and  Thin Ever After? Ways out of Compulsive Eating”, (translated into Hebrew and English, not yet published).

In addition to my expertise in Eating Disorders, I also provide care in the fields of Couples Therapy (I am a Gottman level 3 couples therapist), Mood Disorders (Anxiety and Depression), Psychosomatic Disorders and Chronic Pain, and Self-Esteem.

What I like best is to open new perspectives and give people support in their life challenges. That´s why I dedicated myself to research and offering the most modern, scientific and effective tools in my four areas of expertise. My work has evolved from a Psychoanalytic stance to a new set of strategies that integrates current knowledge on Neuroscience and Emotional Regulations, Endocrinology and Nutrition, and Chronic Disorders.

I hope to share with you my knowledge, optimism and hope. I´d like to show that there are ways out and it will be an honour to guide you in your process.

Therapist's Experience with Gap Year Students

In the last years, the incidence of Eating Disorders has escalated in general but especially among our gap year population. I've been working with many young people in this situation, taking their specific stressors and triggers into account and integrating the therapeutic work with the parents and school setting.
