Get Help Israel’s aim is to verify the accuracy and updated information of the name, contact details and credentials of the therapist; and that the therapist is not subject to any licensing restrictions. Get Help Israel seeks to verify the factual accuracy of the information about the therapist at the time that he/she is listed in the directory, and every year annually at the time of renewal of the registration. Get Help Israel is not responsible for any change of credentials of the therapist in the interim period following such registration and/or renewal of registration of the therapists in its directory.
While Get Help Israel seeks to verify the factual accuracy regarding information pertaining to the therapists listed in its directory, Get Help Israel does not confirm the truth or accuracy as to what the therapists have represented to Get Help Israel or what they have requested to be listed and made public on the Site. Persons considering contacting any of the therapists listed in the directory are urged to conduct their own independent investigation and evaluation before retaining his/her services.
Leora Packer MARehabilitation Psychologist
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.
