ABOUT

I'm a clinical Social Worker, Marriage Therapist and a Certified Supervisor by the Aguda of marriage and family therapy.  I have over thirty years of experience in therapy and marriage counseling including working with the religious and ultra orthodox community.

I manage and supervise a center (Tachanat Briut Hanefesh) for family, couples and individual therapy in the public sector, working with families in distress.   I also have a private clinic in the Modiin area, in a peaceful quiet environment that allows privacy and flexible hours.

Throughout the years that I have worked in the field, I have gained a large amount of experience and knowledge in various therapeutic approaches with a deep and dynamic understanding of relationships. I believe that the therapeutic way and the connection with the patient allows for healing and growth. The tools that I have acquired assist me in helping and learning the needs of the patient.

Therapy for me is the shared journey between the therapist and the patient and the significant process that the patient goes through with sensitivity and feeling. I bring with me to therapy lots of care and thought because I believe that that is the optimal way to bring change and growth. I believe the most important thing in therapy is to give the patient a sense of trust and security during the journey that we go through together.
