I am an experienced psychotherapist and couples therapist with a very extensive mental health background. Before working exclusively in private practice, I worked for years in municipal centers for family therapy, for Enosh and for the Clalit Health Plan at the Mental Health Clinic in Haifa. I possess excellent listening skills and form quick and empathic therapeutic relationships with my clients. I believe in brief, goal-oriented and solution focused therapy. After taking a detailed case history, the main focus of the therapy is agreed upon by the client and therapist. The main goals of therapy are identified and often include the alleviation of suffering and of mental anguish and the development and enhancement of new personal coping strategies and skills. Attention is also paid to the belief system and the world view of the client. In couples therapy, the focus is often improving communication skills and allowing for a more authentic mutual expression of feelings, expectations and needs.
