ABOUT

Understanding the roots of your being will enable you to discover yourself in a new way!  As a therapist with over 35 years of experience in the field, I would say that a person who makes the first contact and asks to be in therapy is actually ready for a change, ready to improve his or her well-being and better his or her life. I utilize professional tools to facilitate a change of old sets of perceptions about the self and others with new ones.  Every person has a subjective world of experiences and therefore needs specific tools to promote the change.  Treatment is a challenging journey of changes in perceptions of the internal world and the outer world, the journey in which there is a process toward a healthier and better life.
I treat bereaved families through the Ministry of Defense and terror victims through National Insurance (Bituach Leumi).
Throughout the years in the United States and Israel, I worked with people of all backgrounds and cultures including: secular, religious and ultra-orthodox. I have worked extensively with olim hadashim from all Anglo countries helping them make adjustments to life in Israel, overcoming culture shock and helping them psychologically.

About My Treatment Model: I have been practicing psychology using the Intersubjective Systems Theory. Supervised For 20 Years By Dr. Robert Stolorow, the leading authority in the world in the field of self-psychology and founder of Intersubjective Systems Theory.
