I believe in goal-oriented therapy. As a Psychologist, I try to help people overcome the difficult things which life sometimes hands us (whether it be trauma such as child sexual abuse or rape, physical or mental illness, loss, domestic violence, fertility treatments, special needs children, stress, etc.). I believe that people have the ability to heal; my job is to assist them in their process. A major part of therapy is to help people understand what they’re going through; knowledge is power. Therapy also includes tools for coping such as relaxation exercises, assertiveness training, and so on. I teach skills from the world of DBT such as mindfulness, distress tolerance and self soothing. In addition, I work with a lot of somatic interventions as often what we are feeling emotionally is also held in the body and we can use the mind-body work to release things and feel better.
My focus is on helping people find their inner strengths so that they become healthier individuals. I enjoy working with young adults, as they forge their own identities, figuring out their values, and directions in life. No man is an island. One of my goals is to work with clients on the skills needed to develop healthy relationships. I enjoy working with singles in figuring out how to find a life partner who is right for them. I am gay friendly. My work with gay or lesbian clients will involve learning to accept themselves for whom they are, and live fulfilling lives as they choose. I have lectured on a variety of subjects, including about therapy for victims of domestic violence, on treating adult survivors of child sexual abuse, and on working with singles. Most of my clients graduate therapy within six months to one year. My objective is to help empower my clients to reach a place of positive self-esteem, health, happiness, and meaning. I am currently working in private practice in Arnona, Jerusalem. I work in English or Hebrew. Prior work experience:
