I am from Vancouver Canada originally, now living in Tel Aviv. I'm a Clinical Counselor and Art Therapist and I specialize in working with children, parents, Olim Chadashim, and young professionals that work and live remotely. I provide counselling and art therapy services that help with personal growth and exploration, with developing resilience, with improving relationships, and with gaining a sense of empowerment, balance, and control in life.
Through counselling and art therapy, I help clients to create the tools they need for personal development. By creating a safe space and a genuine relationship, clients can be creative and feel capable of making the changes they need in their feelings, thoughts, and behaviours. I work with children, parents, and Olim one-to-one and in groups to address challenges including getting in control of emotions, handling stress, coping and thriving with diagnoses such as ADHD, learning disabilities, anxiety, and depression, navigating and improving family relationships, and recovering after loss or trauma. I understand children are not separate from their families and their environment, so I offer support and guidance for parents as well.
As an Olah Chadasha, I find it especially rewarding to work with Olim and young professionals that have made significant life choices to make the move to Israel and build a new life. I provide a therapeutic outlet to help you to process emotions and gain personal insight, and to handle work pressures and other challenges inherent in transitioning between different cultures and communities. I realize that living and working remotely often requires a lot of flexibility, so I also offer online video sessions.
I aim to help my clients develop more resilience for the future by fostering a sense of courage, capability, connection, and significance. I provide purposeful and focused treatment, that is collaborative and shaped by client goals. I draw on theories that suit unique client needs. I work with a level of professionalism, and also informally, authentically, and results-oriented.
