ABOUT

I am an American-born clinical social worker who has been in Israel since 1970. I worked in education for thirty years before embarking on a new career in social work. I bring to my work a perspective that includes the American experience, the immigrant experience and the Israeli experience. I work in both Hebrew and in English. My work is based on the Person-Centered Approach of Carl Rogers, employing the three core conditions: empathy, unconditional positive regard and congruence. Congruence is the authenticity that the therapist brings to the process in which he is a real person, with a real past and present that he feels free to share if he thinks it will benefit the client. The goal of the person-centered approach is self-actualization. This means that I believe that my clients know best what is best for them. They know where they want to go but may need guidance to help them find the way. I try not to give advice and never to make decisions for the client. I trust them to know in their hearts who that person is who they want to become. My clients and I work together, each learning and teaching, and constantly striving to be who we are.
