ABOUT

As an American-trained bilingual therapist immersed in both American and Israeli cultures, I am passionate about helping people cope with life’s challenges and cultivate rewarding lives. I earned my MS and PhD in Psychology from Brown University and Master’s in Social Work (MSW) from Rhode Island College in the United States. My unique approach to therapy combines my background as a brain researcher specializing in perception, cognition, and memory with my clinical training in social work. This approach has allowed me to be thoughtful and thorough in my ability to assess and treat a wide variety of disorders using sensitivity, warmth, and attention to detail. One of my specialties is helping Olim and people from various cultures navigate their journey. I am particularly interested in issues of cultural identity and belonging, which often emerge during cross-cultural transitions. In addition, while I treat a wide variety of challenges including depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, obsessive-compulsive disorder and more, I specialize in treating eating disorders. My experience includes working as part of a multidisciplinary team at an outpatient hospital clinic specializing in eating disorders in adolescents. My clinical experience and training includes working in a variety of settings such as family service agencies, crisis intervention centers, and hospitals in the US. I use an integrative approach, which combines a psychodynamic understanding with cognitive-behavioral and ACT (acceptance-commitment) techniques. I often incorporate mindfulness and artistic means as part of the process. Aside from seeing clients in my private practice, I currently work as a staff therapist at Tel Aviv University’s psychological services, providing services to international students, as well as training clinical psychology interns in CBT. My practice is grounded in the belief that we are all capable of creating change in our lives and that it is often the challenges that remind us of our inner strengths.
