"I am writing to wish you Happy New Year and to tell you we are fine although you probably knew that anyway since you believed in us when we didn't. Thank you again for helping us to put our life back together. We continue using what we learned and heal and nourish our relationship." (Female physicist in her mid-thirties)
I am a doctor in clinical psychology and licensed as professional counselor with more than thirty years of experience helping people overcome difficulties with themselves and with their significant others. I want to help a relationship that started with passion, attraction or love but interrupted grow and become fulfilling and satisfying. We are born as a result of and into relationships. Relationships make us feel happy or sad, feel pain or joy, relaxed or stressed out, anxious and nervous or satisfied and productive, moody and bored and longing having an interesting personal, sexual and interpersonal life.

More Info About My Practice
What would have I done if I had to look for a therapist for a loved one or myself? Therapy could be a beautiful, creative and humane experience. I would want a transforming experience rather than a set of prescriptions of what to or not to do. Since I am going to share with this person my deep feelings, thoughts and desires, then I would want a therapist with diverse life experiences. I would want a therapist who is highly educated and learned and who has also endured painful life experiences, suffering, hardship and struggle. Who could with some modesty say "nothing human is strange to me." And that all of this has made the therapist deeply sensitive, thoughtful, responsive, understanding, caring and interested in living. A powerful therapy has great practical value, worth the time and money spent and the effort invested.
Some Professional Highlights
I have chosen psychology and psychotherapy in particular as my way of surviving this perplexing modern life and helping others cope and survive it in a mature and understanding way. I have received my BA and MA in clinical psychology from Tel-Aviv University Palestine/Israel and PH.D in clinical psychology from The Union Institute and University, Cincinnati, Ohio. I have worked in outpatient and inpatient settings, in schools and in private practice with many hundreds of people from eight to later adulthood age, people who suffer from severe mental illnesses to people struggling with difficulties with themselves, difficulties in living and in relationships; people of diverse nationality, ethnic and religious background, diverse classes, diverse sexual orientation, new immigrants and deep rooted natives, the newly wed and the forever and ever. Have taught seminars, workshops and had been Program Director and clinician at Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care.
Have published a professional book by PsychoSocial Press considered an "important classic" and written such themes as sexuality and sex education, love and loneliness, milieu therapy, the adolescent and his family and psychobiographic therapy.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
On a Personal Note
I was born in Iran and raised in Israel/Palestine; have lived most of my adult life in California and New Jersey and speak also Farsi and Hebrew.
I have been an artist, drawing and painting in oil, since age seven. When I See a Person, I See Art, I See Creativity. Actualizing an artistic or creative work, of whatever sort--a dance, a poem, a film, a piece of music, a writing, a building, a painting, etc.-- is dependent on and is similar to self-actualization. Both are a creative process in need of development and growth. If one is neglected the other is hindered. A gentle therapy can energize and empower both the person and creativity.
