I believe in working with couples and families and supporting parents in their parenting. I have been doing so ever since 1977, as an Educational Counselor in schools in Israel, as a parent group facilitator, and, since 1997, as a certified family and couple therapist and supervisor of family and couple therapists.
As a partner, mother, grandmother and mother-in-law, as well as a therapist, I am very aware of stress caused by the strain of child-rearing, especially of children with learning disabilities and hyperactivity, or special needs. This stress along with the need to make a living and plan for the future.
I believe in an eclectic approach, and work with couples and families in ways which are most suited to them and their unique needs.
I support couples going through periods of change of many kinds such as courting, marriage, becoming parents, becoming grandparents, learning to be successful in-laws. I know that support is also needed in periods of domestic stress such as divorce, blended families, children becoming teenagers, children leaving the nest, chronic illness, unemployment, retirement, migration and relocation, bereavement and the need to care for aging parents.
In other words, when life happens....
For the last 4 years, I have become a devotee of the Gottman Couple Therapy system, and now I incorporate it in my work. The questionnaires and exercises we use provide an effective way to a better marriage and improved family relationships.
I am now a fully Certified Gottman Therapist practicing in Israel, and
also a consultant for therapists wishing to be certified in the Gottman system of couple Therapy in Israel.
In addition, I have specialized training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) - an effective method
for working with trauma, abuse, depression and anxiety.
I work in my clinic in Karkur from Sunday to Friday, or on-line with Zoom.
I try to match the time of meetings to the needs of my clients.
Couples of any nature who are really willing to work hard!
