ABOUT

I have worked in the mental health field for 20 years, with a strong focus on early intervention and prevention the development of mental health issues. I have  an Australian psychologist license and hold a Masters degree in Psychotherapy. I work primarily with anxiety disorders, OCD, obsessional and intrusive thoughts, low self-esteem, impulsive behavior and avoidant or dependent tendencies. My goal is to work with clients to help regulate and improve their reactivity and coping skills by becoming more deeply secure within themselves.


Through my studies and extensive practice, I have also refined my interventions in helping parents deal with extremely challenging behaviors in their children (including ODD, ADHD, high-functioning ASD, etc).  I often work with parents to develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their automatic reactions, as well as their children's unique challenges and needs. I guide parents to utilize their transformative capabilities so that the behavioral challenges become the point of connection, growth and closeness. 


I also work with adults and teens on healing developmental and attachment trauma so life can be more fulfilling and satisfying, including deepening relationships and maintaining healthy boundaries. Specific symptoms such as general anxiety, panic, OCD, separation fears, intrusive thoughts, self-doubt, and other ruminations are my specialty.


Since making Aliyah from Australia, as a parent, I discovered a third area that has become a central focus in my practice. That is the emotional strain that Aliyah puts on families, especially parents, who not only have to adapt to life in Israel, but also help their children to settle in and find themselves and their identities in this new country. The challenges are great, but so are the rewards, and looking after your own emotional health is the key for a smoother journey for the whole family. Having found Aliyah a struggle in certain areas myself, and recognizing gaps in the process, I developed Aliyah with Kids, to support parents and Olim through the Aliyah adjustment process, both individually and by running workshops and seminars.  I do this privately and through the public organisations including local councils. I work in Private Practice at the Place in Ramat Eshkol neighbourhood.  I work with clients online as well as as telephone.
