ABOUT

My name is Shira Wiesen and I am a Psychologist who specializes in treating adolescents and adults using a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) model. DBT is an empirically proven treatment targeting males and females who engage in self-harming, suicidal behavior and/or experience emotional instability. It has been proven effective in treating a significant range of diagnoses, including but not limited to Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Substance Abuse, Eating Disorders, ADHD, and Borderline features.  Before making Aliyah in the summer of 2015 I ran an Adolescent DBT Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for 6 years in Cleveland, Ohio. In additional to running the IOP, I also ran a school based program for healthy tweens and adolescents using an adapted DBT model. Here in Israel I have utilized the intensive group and school-based work I did in the states to adapt DBT for individual, couples, and family based therapeutic formats. I run a private practice in both Jerusalem and Efrat.
