ABOUT

"BE STRONG ENOUGH TO STAND ALONE, SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW WHEN YOU NEED HELP AND BRAVE ENOUGH TO ASK FOR IT." I have been practicing therapy for more than 20 years, I am a psychotherapist and a couples and family therapist. At the age of 18, I decided to settle in Israel.  I grew up in South Africa and I speak fluent English and Hebrew. I have worked in the public sector for many years and was head of the agency for couples and family therapy at the Kiriyat Moskin Municipality.


I currently work with adults, adolescents, children, couples and families. I specialize in working with a wide range of problems: relational, emotional, anxiety, life transition, aliyah-related challenges, divorce counseling, custody issues, stress management, parenting issues and post traumatic stress disorders. I try to adapt the mode of therapy to the needs of my clients and as part of the therapeutic process, I help my clients to acquire tools and skills that will enable them to cope effectively with their problems. Life and relationships can often be hard and tough.  Sometimes it can be very helpful to talk to a therapist in order to understand what is happening in and around us. For many people therapy enables them to improve their lives and to make meaningful and lasting changes.  


In addition to my my professional experience, I have many years of life experience which enables me to have deeper understanding of my client's struggles.  I invite you to contact me for a telephone consultation.
