ABOUT

For the most part, we do the best we can with what we have, even in the most difficult and painful situations; yet these efforts are not always enough for us to cope as well as we would like to, overcome problems and move forward in life. Sometimes, we decide to turn to professional help. Do you need help with painful, confusing or overwhelming experiences and feelings? Are you trying to find your way through a tough decision? Do you find yourself stuck on the same-old unsatisfying or hurtful patterns in any of the important relationships in your life? Is it your relationship with yourself that is problematic for you? Many years ago, i decided to become a therapist because I wanted to do something that would give expression to, and reflect what I hold most precious and interesting in life: relationships-with others and with ourselves. I suppose that informs my continuing curiosity and caring about people. I have approximately 30 years of experience in the mental health field as an individual, couples, family and group therapist. This experience includes a variety of clinical settings, as well as private practice. Throughout my career I have successfully worked with a wide variety of issues. With empathy and support I help clients to identify and utilize their unique strengths and creativity in finding hope, overcoming problems, changing unhelpful ways of coping, constructing solutions, and reaching self-acceptance. I hold two Masters degrees- an M.Ed specializing in Counseling, and an MMFT (Marriage and Family Therapy)- which I received in Canada. I work in both English and Hebrew.
