Hello and welcome. My name is Timi Garay, I am a psychotherapist and licensed clinical social worker with a practice based in Ramat Gan for adults.
I am a native English and Hebrew speaker with a lot of experience working with “Olim” and English-speaking community. Speaking in the language you are comfortable in therapy is a crucial component in creating a sense of security and mutual understanding. Over the years I have worked with patients from all walks of life dealing with challenges and difficulties in various aspects, all of them seeking therapy as a way of enhancing their well-being and improving their functioning.
I am trained in psychodynamic therapy and draw from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as well. I am skilled in long term therapy as well as focused short-term therapy. I adapt my technique and approach tailoring to your needs while keeping focus on your personal goals for therapy.
Some people have a clear vision as to what they want to achieve in therapy, some have a feeling that “something isn’t quite right” or feel dissatisfied in one or more aspects in life and wish for things to be different. Therapy can help facilitate personal growth and getting in touch with deeper emotions that are sometimes masked by other feelings or are subconscious. It may help you learn to communicate more effectively or help you gain a new perspective on situations in life. Perhaps it may help you strengthen your self esteem and confidence and build a stronger identity.
I will create a safe space for you to explore your emotions, experiences and thoughts while moving towards gaining insight in order to understand yourself in a profound way. The process may not be immediate or easy but we will patiently and persistently work through difficult issues in order to get to the other side where freedom and change await. I can easily believe this goal can happen for you, as I have had the pleasure of assisting many journeys where clients find themselves healing and growing.
