Leora Packer MA

Rehabilitation Psychologist

ABOUT

I am a psychologist working with clients in central Israel, with experience in both hospital and outpatient clinical settings.  I have rich experience treating depression, anxiety and chronic illness as well as single mothers by choice. I also 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 the “unidentified” patient.

I work with various therapeutic techniques and generally use a tailor-made integrative technique based on my client’s individual needs and treatment goals.

I presently serve as a psychologist at the Community Clinic at the Department of Psychology in Bar-lan University, where I have seen adults, children and adolescents for the last 6 years (since 2012) with individuals seeking both long- and short-term care.

I also work with patients in the Danieli Clinic for Trauma and Loss where I utilize special techniques related to mourning and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  Previously, I have also worked at Tel Hashomer Hospital in the Neurological Rehabilitation Unit.

After completing my BA in psychology at Brandeis University and making aliyah, I earned my MA in clinical-rehabilitation psychology at Bar-Ilan University, where I subsequently continued my PhD.
