ABOUT

 The Corona crisis has made a major impact on all of us.  Committed to meeting clients' needs as they define them, I continue to offer the option of online therapy.   This removes geographic limitations and enables flexible scheduling. Reduced rates are available to those who have lost income.

Some of the common issues that I work with:

  • Improving relationships
  • ADHD -understanding and meeting challenges
  • Plans for children and their adjustment in divorcing families and Parental Alienation Syndrome
  • Issues around LGBTQ families on all levels (young adults, parents, families)

I am bilingual and often counsel couples in both English and Hebrew.

A Columbia University graduate, I made aliya in 1982. I have been working since then with children and families, both in the public and private sectors. I assist individuals, couples and families in their quest for well-being.
