My Approach to Helping

I am an internationally-known couples therapist, workshop presenter, and clinical trainer. In 2010, I founded the Tikkun Learning Center, an educational institution through which I train, supervise, and consult therapists in Encounter-centered Couples Therapy (EcCT).

EcCT is an extremely effective method with proven success in teaching couples who to re-create the magic of connection. EcCT is an integrative approach inspired by the philosophy of Martin Buber, as well as a variety of relational methodologies including Imago Relationship Therapy, Appreciative Inquiry, Re-evaluation Counseling, and Relational Neuro-biology.

I have developed a unique, customized, transformational two-day private session for one couple. You will receive my full attention, expertise and mastery, and I will introduce you to the groundbreaking and pragmatic principle of the three invisible connectors: "the Space, the Bridge, and the Encounter."

More Info About My Practice

I have appeared on Israel TV in a seven-part series entitled "Couples Therapy," and have created several video and audio programs on transforming relationships. A documentary film entitled "Hedy and Yumi: Crossing the Bridge" tells the story of myself and my husband Yumi, our message and mission. I have presented at the prestigious TEDx TelAviv Conference, and am continually asked to speak at conferences throughout the world.
