ABOUT

Perhaps you're feeling overwhelmed, sad or challenged by the things that life has thrown your way. I can help you to feel better about yourself and your relationships. With over 30 years experience as a clinical social worker/psychotherapist, my practice has focused on adolescents, young adults, and couples. As a clinical supervisor for six years in Nefesh B'Nefesh I specialized in Aliyah issues at different stages of life. I also enjoy working with parents of adolescents, individually and in parenting groups, helping them navigate the rough waters of their child's developing independent selves. I have completed training programs in Family Therapy in Vancouver, BC and Psychoanalytic Self Psychology, at Tel Aviv University, a humanistic form of psychotherapy.  In this approach I create a safe, compassionate, attuned relationship where you can discover your own unique qualities. I use complimentary modalities to help you to attain your personal goals. Our work together will help to strengthen your sense of self and build your self confidence. This will enable you to live the richer, more fulfilling, and balanced life that you deserve. Call me for a phone consultation and to set up an appointment.
