ABOUT

Good for you for seeking support about the things that most matter to you. You can achieve meaningful change!

In over 20 years as a therapist I've learned that a therapy relationship that honours and develops your expertise about yourself and your life is a crucial resource towards more happiness and thriving in your life.

The first step to change is facing what is. We’ll get a clear sense of the problem that you want to solve or the situation you want to change.

Small steps are the key to big change. We’ll go through a process in which you define what you want and identify the next attainable step. One doable step at a time change is built.

We’ll learn how your relationship with yourself is the key to creating change and getting unstuck. This is good, because your relationship with yourself is the place where you have the most control.

We’ll look for the specific ways in which facing your experience – your thoughts, your deeply held opinions and your feelings – can get you unstuck in your life, your behaviour or your relationships.

We’ll use mindfulness tools to help you gain more self-knowledge, acceptance and peace of mind.

We’ll use your problems and distresses as gateways to meaningful growth and change.

I have over 20 years of providing therapy in private practice and as clinical director of Gisha Lachaim (Tishkofet), I’ve gained successful experience with all kinds of problems and needs, including:

Anxiety and mood issues

Illness and loss

Difficult relationships

Self image and self acceptance

The desire for empowerment and happiness in the face of life’s difficulties

I work with children and adults, individuals, couples and families. I have a Masters degree in social work from New York University, as well as a Bachelors degree in Social Work from Hebrew University and a Bachelors degree in psychology from York University. My training included psychodynamic approaches, family therapy and years of personal and professional experience applying tools of mindfulness. I also incorporate parts work, body awareness and ideas from CBT, DBT and ACT.
