ABOUT

Lea is passionate about assisting people who have been through or are experiencing stressful or traumatic life events. Lea’s goal is to help clients including young adults, women, and couples find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships with others. Research shows that unhealthy relationships can cause both emotional and physical stress, whereas healthy relationships can enhance and improve overall wellbeing. Lea empowers couples and individuals to overcome personal obstacles and improve their relationships. The objective is for clients to know themselves as peaceful, complete, whole, and safe.

Lea offers relationship counseling, sex therapy, and individual counseling for anxiety, depression, and relationship issues using a variety of clinically tested and evidenced-based interventions chosen on a case by case basis.

Currently, Lea’s attention is focused on intimacy and sexuality, particularly within the Orthodox community. She has found that the connection between a couple’s physical/intimate life and their emotional relationship is intrinsically linked. Therapy can help to bridge the gap that has often formed between the couple due to issues in one area or the other.

Lea has a Master’s degree in Social Work from Wurzweiler School of Social Work, certificate training from The Family Institute of Neve Yerushalayim in Family Therapy, Training at Machon Puah,
ייעוץ בקדושה לחיי אישות, and in the process of completing training in Sex Therapy from Bar Ilan University.
