Philosophy & Practice
I believe that therapy should challenge us enough to expand the ways we feel and interact with the world.
In our work together, I hope to not only help you gain insight into the narratives of your life, but also to give you tools to coauthor your experience, and to make practical changes when necessary.
I work with individuals and couples to address a range of issues and life circumstances, such as relationship issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, professional identity, issues of self esteem, life transitions, creative blocks, grief, addiction, body image, insomnia, fertility, prenatal, postpartum, and more. I use a variety of tools to support each individual, including: psychodynamic and insight oriented therapy, as well as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), stress management, and mindfulness.
I strongly believe in the unity of mind and body. When there’s interest, I combine somatic therapy and therapeutic yoga with talk therapy. By increasing the awareness of the mind/body connection, we enable ourselves to experience memories and emotions that “live” within our bodies. I also use mindfulness and relaxation techniques to help reduce stress and treat symptoms of anxiety, panic, and depression.
I strive to offer a safe, non-judgmental environment for you to explore your mind, and to look at old patterns that might no longer serve you. My style is warm, compassionate, non-judgmental, and direct. I am fluent in English and Hebrew, and I treat in both languages.
