ABOUT

I am a psychologist working with clients in central Israel.  I have experience treating depression, anxiety, and chronic illness as well experience working with single mothers by choice. I have special interest and experience in treating siblings and care-givers to individuals with chronic illness, disability or mental illness - those often thought of as "unidentified" patients. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques and generally use a tailor-made integrative technique based on my client's individual needs and treatment goals.

In addition to my private clinic, I previously served as a psychologist at the Community Clinic at the Department of Psychology in Bar-llan University, where I worked with adults, children, and adolescents for several years. I have worked at the Danieli Clinic for Trauma and Loss, where I utilized narrative therapy related to mourning and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and at Tel Hashomer Hospital in the Neurological Rehabilitation Unit and the Oncology Dept. (specializing in Breast Cancer). 

Presently, I  maintain a private practice in Petach Tikva.  I work in both English and Hebrew.  After completing my BA in psychology at Brandeis University and making aliyah, I earned my MA and PhD in clinical-rehabilitation and neuro-psychology psychology at Bar-Ilan University. I have also completed an advanced degree in a 3 year psychotherapy program at the Winnicott Center.
