ABOUT

I am a clinical psychologist and a Jungian analyst who has been in practice since 1985, working with adults and children, as well in training and supervision. The longer I am in practice the more humble I become, recognizing I am an escort to my patients on a very personal journey of individuation. Carl Jung brought to the world a deep respect for the Soul to grow and heal itself given the right soil. My approach is to partner with my patients to create a safe temenos (sacred place of therapy) for the work of healing and growth to occur. I have worked with a breadth and depth of problems including depression, anxiety, abuse, ADHD, trauma, life issues, and spirituality. I am an expert in dreams and symbolic work, having worked with thousands of dreams.  I am am active member of the Israel Institute for Jungian Psychology in Honor of Erich Neumann for  which I train analytic candidates .  I teach at the Bar Ilan program of Continuing Education  in Jungian psychotherapy. I also served as a pre-doctoral internship director for JFS Collaborative, a training consortium associated with Jewish Family Services of Richmond.Association. I am a member of the Israeli Sandplay Therapists Association and the International Society for Sandplay Therapists. I publish and present professional papers both in Israel and internationally. I also publish a blog for Medium.com and enjoy bringing psychological concepts to the world at large.

Good Therapy is a Change in Scenery: Insights from the Other Side of the World

Dec 24, 2018

Every once in a while, important insights for my known world reveal themselves from the most unusual of places. My recent trip to the Far East: Myanmar and Thailand gifted me new insights and inspirations as a Jungian analyst. My mantra became, Good therapy is a change in scenery. In the safety of the therapist’s temenos (a beautiful Jungian term for the sanctity of the therapy space), patients meet the messages of the unconscious often for the first time. And in meeting these unknown voices and images, our inner and outer worlds transform themselves into newness and rebirth.


Simmering Soup: On the Importance of Asking Questions

Mar 30, 2017

Sometimes the question sits on the back burner like low-simmering stew that has all but been forgotten. An innocent question may ignite a fire in a chilly room and we are off in a new direction. Or sometimes it buzzes around like a nasty mosquito.


Chewbacca Visits: The Power of a Dream

Sep 04, 2016

Dreams bring images and messages from the depths of our soul. It is our psyche’s way of compensating for our conscious life, which is only one-half of our life-story. Our dream life brings a richness and ebb and flow to our daily existence. Likewise when we are in touch with our unconscious, there is a flow to our daily existence much like the ebb and flow of the waves of the sea. Our unconscious helps bring us light and creativity and vitality.
