Hello! Shalom! My name is Nitsan and I am a therapist in Tel Aviv, Israel.
- Supporting Women Through "Emotional Stuckness" or who notice that they don't seem like themselves lately - maybe feeling disconnected or unnaturally negative. I have a special interest in working with ambitious women who currently feel unaligned with themselves and want to "get back" to how they want to be; to feel balanced, happy and navigating life from a place of stability and self assuredness.
- Helping Young Professionals overcome the high amounts of stress and anxiety typically experienced during this age.
- Working with multicultural clients (e.g those with immigrant parents) to help lessen the feeling of "where do I belong?" and increase and/or bring clarity to your sense of self and personal identity.
As a therapist, my practice is guided by many core assumptions of General Systems Theory, Communications Theory and Emotion-Focused Therapy. Through the therapeutic process, I view symptoms as a result of relationships between individuals, and not just manifesting solely within a single individual. My practice is rooted in my belief of human resilience and hope; that the individual can still heal and grow after painful experiences. I view therapy as a collaborative process and as we work together, I will look to provide you with the techniques and approaches that will suit you best, for each individual and each situation is its own. I may offer alternatives to traditional therapy such as varying forms of meditation and deep breathing. Further, I believe that the therapeutic relationship is a unique and personal one; I honor that by creating a safe, nonjudgmental space in which we can explore current struggles, discuss past hardships and make way for healing and hope.
I was born in Israel and raised in Las Vegas by Israeli parents. I received a Bachelor's of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Arizona and a Masters of Science in Couples and Family Therapy from the University of Oregon. I have taken additional courses in Mindfulness and Trauma-Sensitive Yoga and completed the Gottman Method Couples Therapy Level 1 Training. Several years ago I made the decision to move to Israel for a “brief” period of time, which has now unfolded into a chapter of my life that is more settled, rooted and allows me to call Israel my home.
