I am a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY 23043) and have extensive experience working with individuals, families, couples and children of all ages.
My clinical approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) known as the most commonly used evidence-based practice treating a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, stress management, grief and loss. I also incorporate Mindfulness principles in my work.
Since I became a mom my passion, curiously, and outmost compassion goes to working with families adjusting to parenthood. That can include individual work with mom/dad, couples work, attachment to baby, parenting consultation while providing support and helping develop useful skills during this transition time.
My previous work at the MOMS program at El Camino Hospital helped me to better understand the unique elements of the perinatal period.
My non-judgmental approach helps to identify, express and gain clarity about the challenges you may face. Collaboratively, in a supportive and validating environment, we learn to apply effective skills across different aspects in your life.
My research focused on bereavement, and specifically on exploring the role of the continuing bond to the deceased and coping with the death of a loved one. I also extended my focus to the impact of pet loss.
I earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Pacific Graduate School of Psychology, which is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA).
I offer services in both English and Hebrew.
I am also a mom of 3 boys.
