Before becoming a therapist, I was fortunate to learn for 12 years in yeshiva, receive Semicha from the
Rabbanut, and serve as a rebbi to adolescents and emerging adults. After receiving my Masters in Social
Work, I dedicated several years to postgraduate internships to increase my competency as a therapist.
In these years, engaged in specialized programs for working with couples, children, and families, as well
as programs through which I gained training in working with adults and children using Cognitive
Behavioral Therapy, Short Term Psychodynamic Therapy, and Experiential therapies, such as IFS, EFT,
and AEDP. In these postgraduate trainings, I garnered over 1,000 hours of experience, guided by expert
supervision, much of which surrounded review of videotapes of my work viewed and critiqued by these
experts and at times by colleagues.
I worked in Hadassah Hospital’s Outpatient Unit as a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist treating clients
suffering from a range of challenges, including PTSD, Depression, OCD, Anxiety Disorders, and ADHD. At
Hadassah, I worked closely with my clients’ psychiatrists on our Outpatient Unit, and I learned the
importance of appropriate collaboration of professionals who can work together to provide the best help possible for the client.
In addition to my private practice in Yerushalayim, I have worked with individuals, couples, and families at the Emuna Family Therapy Center of Beit Shemesh, and I serve as a Couples Therapist for a a specially
funded and multidimensional program in Kiryat Sefer named Tochnit Aviv.
