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. 


Presently, I am a psychologist at Tel Hashomer’s Oncology Department while maintaining 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 in clinical-rehabilitation psychology at Bar-Ilan University, where I am currently earning a PhD. I am also pursing an advanced degree in psychotherapy at the Winnicott Center.
