I am the clinical director of Headspace, an innovative evidence-based psychological treatment center for adolescents and young adults in Jerusalem. I received my Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Columbia University and am an adjunct professor at Hebrew University, where I teach crisis intervention and brief psychotherapy techniques.
Born in Moscow, Russia, I grew up in Israel and studied and trained in New York City. I work in three languages: English, Russian, and Hebrew and often work with people who have lived in different countries and cities, trying to help them find a sense of home and belonging in an increasingly transient modern world. I work with adolescents and adults, individuals and couples, and feel comfortable working with all psychiatric diagnoses.
In my work, I utilize many of the current treatment approaches--for short or long term interventions--and customize them based on the person I work with and the problem we're working on. But ultimately, I believe that success in psychotherapy depends upon creating something special between two people, where there is trust, understanding, and a sense of joy.
