ABOUT

I was born in Israel but both my parents were Olim. My goal is to promote self-awareness, self-compassion and emotional well-being for my clients. The tools I use are varied and evidence-based. I value the heart to heart connection above all else. I also believe in the power of creativity and in the language of Art as the language of the unconscious, allowing us to better sense the issue at hand from different perspectives. I combine the practice of personally guided Mindfulness sessions within the therapeutic meeting and believe greatly in it as a powerful aid in the therapeutic process. I work with EMDR and am a certified practiotioner of Neuroptimal, one of few in Israel.
