ABOUT

Originally from Australia, I am the former head of psychiatric services at Hadassah Mt. Scopus and currently, am the director of Machon Dvir while also managing a private practice in Baka/German Colony in Jerusalem. I see both English and Hebrew speaking clients from the age of 18 and above and who come from a range of religious (and non-religious) backgrounds. I perform comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, diagnoses and treatment plans that include medical management and importantly, working in an integrated fashion with other mental health professionals.
