ABOUT

I'm a fully bilingual and professionally trained Expressive Arts Therapist, Mental Health Counselor, and Dyadic Therapist in private clinical practice in Ra'anana. I work with children from four years through the early pre-teen years in a medium that allows me to reach their inner worlds through a therapeutic process using music, movement, art, drama, storytelling, and play. Together, we build the foundations of a healthy relationship based upon trust, working through emotional barriers to reach each child's unique potential. In addition to my clinical practice, I work as a therapist in the Ra'anana educational system. I counsel children from pre-kindergarten through junior high school with a variety of learning disabilities, anxiety disorders, and a full range of emotional issues including: transitional adjustment issues, emotional regulation and sensory issues, as well as body image and self esteem issues. Much of my work includes children who have been diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). My approach as a therapist is collaborative - both providing a voice for the child, as well as empowering the parents to advocate vis-a-vis the Israeli school system for the needs of their child. My experience maneuvering through the myriad complexities within this system can help alleviate much confusion and frustration for both parents and children. Combined with bi-cultural understanding, fluency in both Hebrew and English, and a desire to address the specific therapeutic needs of the English-speaking population in the Sharon region, my goal as a therapist is to bridge our work that takes place in the safety of the clinic with the practical realities of the outside world. It is my aim to provide the children in my clinic with a safe therapeutic environment in which to strengthen and grow - equipping parents with additional emotional tools and a renewed expanded understanding to navigate through the complex emotional terrain together, with compassion and confidence, for the benefit of the child. I invite you to visit my clinic at the entrance to the moshav of Givat Chen at the edge of Ra'anana. For a personal consult please contact me at 054-4290831.
