Elisheva (Elie) Hoffman PhD

Clinical Psychologist

ABOUT

I am a clinical psychologist, licensed in Israel and the USA. I earned my B.A. from Hebrew University, and my PhD from Long Island University. I was born in the USA, made Aliya with my family at the age of 7, grew up in Israel, served in the IDF, and am fully bi-cultural, with a strong connection to both identities.

I trained and worked in NYC, including teaching academic courses in psychology and supervising trainees, working with diverse populations treating a wide range of issues in a variety of settings, including general hospitals and community clinics. My most recent position was as a staff psychologist at Columbia University's Counseling and Psychological Services, and I am currently affiliated with Tel Aviv University Psychological Services.

My therapeutic approach is collaborative and relationally oriented, and integrates elements of other approaches, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness. This may sound like a lot of confusing jargon, so I will not expand further here, but will happily do so during our initial meetings should we decide to work together.
