Clinical Social Worker, Psychotherapist
Licensed in Israel
We all come across difficult situations in our lives - sometimes it's depression, sometimes it's anxiety, ADHD, OCD or a myriad of other things that bother us and affect how we view ourselves and how we live our lives. I am a caring, bi-lingual (English-Hebrew) speaking therapist with many years of experience helping people achieve their maximum potential and feel more whole and content with themselves. I am a big believer in empathy and use an intergrative approach incorporating a psychodynamic approach (Self Psychology school of thought) with CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and using also EFT (Emotional Focused Therapy) as well as Mindfulness, Polyvagal theory and Mentalization, suiting each approach to the individual client. I believe therapy should be a safe place where together with the therapist, one can explore things at their own pace and reach their goals, and alleviate symptoms and stress. I see both children/adolescents, parents and adults.
Along with my private clinic, I also work at Tel Hashomer hospital in the Child and Adolescent Outpatients clinic where I belong also to the Anxiety and Trauma CBT clinic and the Crisis Intervention unit. I have also facilitated a Social Skills group for the last seven years and during Corona co-started a group for adolescents which continued post-Corona. In my work at Tel Hashomer I also treat people with neurogenetic syndromes.
As someone who has moved countries a number of times, I am attuned to the challenges of relocating and studying abroad and am on the IDC Student Counseling list of therapists in Tel Aviv.
I am a supervisor for students from Tel Aviv university who are doing their internship in the Tel Hashomer clinic. With children both in Tel Hashomer and in my private clinic I use play therapy. I am passionate about the work I do and believe in my clients' abilities to connect to their essence and live to their fullest.
