Get Help Israel’s aim is to verify the accuracy and updated information of the name, contact details and credentials of the therapist; and that the therapist is not subject to any licensing restrictions. Get Help Israel seeks to verify the factual accuracy of the information about the therapist at the time that he/she is listed in the directory, and every year annually at the time of renewal of the registration. Get Help Israel is not responsible for any change of credentials of the therapist in the interim period following such registration and/or renewal of registration of the therapists in its directory.
While Get Help Israel seeks to verify the factual accuracy regarding information pertaining to the therapists listed in its directory, Get Help Israel does not confirm the truth or accuracy as to what the therapists have represented to Get Help Israel or what they have requested to be listed and made public on the Site. Persons considering contacting any of the therapists listed in the directory are urged to conduct their own independent investigation and evaluation before retaining his/her services.
Esther Abta MSW, LADCCertified Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor, Psychotherapist
I will help you improve your mood with integrative approaches to treating the mind and body. I specialize in using complementary and alternative methods such as nutrition, meditation/mindfulness, herbal medicine, and counseling to treat trauma, depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. My approach is holistic, solution oriented, and strengths-based focus through a trauma-informed lens.
By understanding your strengths, you can prevent or lessen the damage of disease, stress and disorder. Mental health issues are a normal part of human life. By providing individualized, evidence-based treatment my patients reported emotional and behavioral improvements, including decreased anxiety, decreased insomnia, increased resilience, increased compassion, enhanced focus, increase of better mood and well-being. Mental health recovery is a personal journey of gaining increasing meaningful life despite the presence of mental illnesses.
During your therapy sessions, you’ll have a supportive environment where you can feel comfortable sharing your personal story. It’s important that you feel heard, seen and understood during these sessions. Together, we will build on your individual strengths to create small steps you can take today to start feeling better. You should feel accepted right where you are in life, but also feel challenged to reach your desired goals for the future.
I welcome hearing from you to support your path toward feeling great.
