ABOUT

I am a multilingual therapist and integrate tools from several therapeutic approaches.

I called my private practice הספור…Sometimes the ideal story we tell ourselves, and what happens to us in daily life clashes.  Sometimes we face challenges and transitions and, for different reasons, do not know (anymore) how to write our next chapter, or think we will never be able to.  Sometimes we lack the energy altogether to start and write it.

As a systemic therapist I try to think  broadly and together with you about the problem, the transition you are facing and the direction you are going in (and with your different contexts that you are in). I invite you to look together at where you want to go, what's going on, what is the meaning of  that 'feeling/being stuck' and discover ways to deal with it. This can be done in various ways according to what suits you (speaking/listening, focusing, drawing, family trees, walking, psycho-education), as short as possible and as long as needed.  

If you consult for your child/youngster, we will look with you (and if appropriate with your child/youngster/important others) at what each one of you needs to be able to create enabling stories and situations so that your child can develop further.

It's important to note that I don’t provide diagnosis. Sometimes it will be important to work together with other professionals and/or with your family doctor.

*I owe the name to a group practice named ' 't Verhaal' (Yes, The Story) who had tremendous respect for the stories of each one and each family and how they are told, played out, and lived.
