I am a U.S.-trained and U.S. board-certified child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist, who made aliyah from Boston in 2018. I am recognized as a מומחה in adult psychiatry in Israel. I currently work in the child psychiatry department at Merkaz L'Briut HaNefesh Be’er Yaakov Nes Ziona, and am in the process of becoming a מומחה in child and adolescent psychiatry. I have a small private practice in Ra'anana one evening a week during which I see patients ages 16 or older, including gap year and yeshiva/seminary students, as well as young professionals.
I am trained in a number of treatment modalities including psychodynamic therapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), family therapy, and medication management. I take an integrative, patient-centered approach to treatment, designing a treatment plan that is consistent with your values and priorities. I take a mindful and careful approach to the use of medications, when indicated, and utilize them in conjunction with other tools such as psychotherapy.
I completed my residency in adult psychiatry followed by a fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School-affiliated Cambridge Health Alliance. Throughout my training, I was involved in a variety of activities mostly around the topics of quality improvement, innovation, and education, and have been fortunate to present my work at national conferences and in academic journals. During my training, I worked with college and graduate students at MIT’s Mental Health Center, and had opportunities to train at McLean Hospital and The Meadows. I received my B.A. with honors from the University of Michigan, where I also completed a Master of Public Policy degree. I graduated from medical school at Brown University, where I was inducted into both the Alpha Omega Alpha and Gold Humanism Honor Societies.
While I am based in Israel, I continue to maintain a part-time staff appointment at Cambridge Health Alliance, where I am involved in academic projects, and teach and supervise Harvard medical students, residents, and fellows. I look forward to meeting and working together with you.
