I work with all kinds of people from celebrities to civil servants, essentially anyone who wants to grow and live life more fully. In a completely non-judgmental environment, I will help you work through life challenges by guiding you on the right path, integrating various techniques and formulating an action plan tailored to your specific needs and goals.

I am a multilingual therapist and offer sessions in Spanish, Hebrew and Farsi. I have extensive experience and excellent treatment results with anxiety depression, fertility issues, premarital and marriage counseling. I also created a self study audio program for couples and singles.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

It's essential to have good chemistry and not feel judged in the relationship with your therapist in order to grow and evolve. I maintain a non-judgmental environment with empathy, warmth, and care. I am interactive and like to give my clients feedback. I help you to explore those troubled aspects of your life, while offering you the best treatment approach possible. In an atmosphere that promotes self-acceptance, understanding and trust, you will be able to explore and eliminate those conflicts that get in your way so that you can feel better and finally reach your goals.

I also specialize in relationship issues and regularly work with couples to deepen intimacy and improve communication. My clients achieve their goals through practical solutions, insights and a deeper understand of themselves.

The purposed of psychotherapy is to have a witness who can help guide you to deeper parts of yourself. You are constantly gaining insights about yourself as you grow to have more space for others. You are evolving as a person and taking in all the wonderful aspects of life. Your judgment improves as you make more sound and solid decisions in your life. You are able to be your true authentic self with others as you embrace both your strengths and weaknesses and learn to experience self acceptance.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love helping my clients identify where they are feeling stuck and learn what their triggers are so they can feel more in control of their lives. I also love being a part of their growth and watching them evolve into someone they like and respect. I feel honored to be on their journey with them as they identify their triggers, gain insights and create a more fulfilling life.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

I believe it is the strong person who goes to therapy as it is a hard process and you need to be motivated and introspective. This kind of work requires depth and insight and is definitely not for the weak or flawed. A you learn more about yourself you can feel in control and create the life you desire. In the book "The Roadless Traveled" Dr. Scott Peck states in the chapter on "GRACE"...when a person becomes symptomatic and suffers from depression, anxiety etc..it is an opportunity to grow and evolve and ultimately live a better life.
