ABOUT

Hello!

My name is Dr. Shelly Shoshana Bakst and I am a psychotherapist/psychopathologist with a private practice in Tel Aviv and also work as a researcher for the Israel Center for Disease Control/Ministry of Health.

My research centers around the field of suicide prevention and psychiatric epidemiology, e.g., the study of mental illness and its trajectories.

In my clinical work, I assist my clients to navigate through life challenges as they relate to: career development, personal relationships and various issues relating to mental health and well-being. 
I received my education and training between Israel (Hebrew University, Bar Ilan) and the United States (Yeshiva University, Harvard University) and consider both English and Hebrew as mother tongues. Sessions are conducted in English and Hebrew (or both). 
I will provide a compassionate space for you to verbalize and reflect upon your thoughts and feelings.

Throughout the process you will learn to identify and appreciate your strengths, as you change the things in your life that keep you from living to your full potential.
