ABOUT

I am a psychiatrist of 44 years, an EMDR therapist for 27 years, and the director of the EMDR Institute of Israel. My most important job is to make a proper diagnosis. I view the normal state for a person is to be medically healthy and feeling good. This is also the case with psychological or psychiatric issues. Our default position is to feel healthy. We may have temporary negative moods and thoughts, but in our regular state, we should have positive moods and thoughts. With a proper diagnosis I can treat my patients with the correct psychological treatment or medication to allow recovery, growth, and resilience. EMDR was originally designed to treat PTSD. Worldwide EMDR is one of the two main treatments for PTSD. We consider major trauma, where there are man-made or natural disasters as big “T” trauma. But most of the psychological problems such as anxiety and depression develop from Small “t” trauma such as occurs from interaction with family, friends or teachers. EMDR has evolved into a comprehensive, integrated, unique psychotherapy for most all psychological problems. Medication can treat the rest of the problems. Using these tools (and others) I work with my patients to help them live their lives in a healthy and happy
