ABOUT

Sometimes all a person needs is an ear to listen and a heart to understand. At Positive Health Counseling, I specialize in working with Generation Z and adults Millennials.

  • Improve relationships and coping mechanisms with teachers, parents, and friends
  • Ease adjustments to Israel's culture and education system
  • Relieve stress and tension over anticipation about army service and national service
  • Cope with personal anxiety issues and mental health distress
  • Trauma
  • Gap year Challenges

I use different techniques including motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, and focused psychotherapy in working on eliminating unwanted behaviors or patterns in your life. My methods are practical, goal-oriented and individually tailored to your circumstances.

Therapist's Experience with Gap Year Students

I've worked with gap year students for over ten years, either as an adjunct teacher and a therapist for various Masa programs or TAU students. I help gap year or university students to adjust to the Israeli culture and way of life in Israel.
