ABOUT

I am a US-trained clinical psychologist, licensed in both the US (Massachusetts) and Israel (מומחה- Expert in Clinical Psychology). My training is within a scientist-practitioner model which means that the therapy I provide is informed by the latest research and is evidence-based so that you receive care that is shown to be effective.

I will work to integrate well-researched strategies into an individualized treatment approach that is tailored to your style, needs, and goals and delivered with a non-judgmental, accepting, and compassionate approach. I believe strongly in a collaborative approach that respects the dignity, autonomy, and strengths of everyone I work with. You are the expert on your personal history and experience and bring an understanding of what has and has not worked for you in the past. I bring my clinical training, knowledge of proven clinical strategies and techniques, and my experience working with others in similar situations. I will partner with you to help you progress toward living a life consistent with your values and the things that matter most to you. We will work together to help you learn skills and strategies in order to develop more adaptive ways of handling difficult situations well after you finish therapy.

My background: I became interested in psychology as an undergraduate during a "semester-abroad" spent studying at Hebrew University. My semester in Jerusalem coincided with a period of on-going terrorist attacks and I was struck by the seeming resilience of many individuals and society I observed around me. I wondered about the sources of this ability to go on in spite of everything, but also wondered what psychological cost of this response. I returned to the US determined to study how people cope with on-going difficult and even traumatic situations with the hopes of eventually returning to Israel to apply this knowledge in the service of helping people.

I received a BA with Honors in Psychology from Barnard College, Columbia University and a Masters and PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of Massachusetts in Boston. During my training, I worked in counseling centers, out-patient, day and inpatient treatment facilities, and academic-research hospitals specializing in civilian and military populations. I completed an American Psychological Association (APA) clinical internship at the May Institute in Boston followed by a multi-year post-doctoral fellowship affiliated with the National Center for PTSD at the Boston Veterans Administration Hospital where I then stayed on as a staff Clinical Research Psychologist until making aliyah in 2014. Through my work at the VA, I developed an expertise in the clinical treatment and research of trauma and other military related distress. I have published academic articles related to the treatment of grief, PTSD, and Moral Injury. I have lectured to professional audiences here in Israel on Moral Injury and am currently a consultant to a Moral Injury research team at the University of Haifa.

I am especially interested and passionate about supporting soldiers and veterans integrate their military experiences in a healthy way that helps them move forward with their lives. I also work with non-military related distress and trauma, anxiety, depression, adjustment disorders and a range of other life challenges. I offer a free initial consultation to determine whether treatment with me is the right fit for you. I look forward to speaking with you.
