EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

I work primarily with Orthodox Jewish women in New York via teletherapy, and in person at my location in Jerusalem, Israel. Most of my clients are dealing with the effects of childhood or adult abuse and trauma, including developmental/attachment issues. I have some knowledge of Hebrew and Yiddish, but I work mainly in English. I use EMDR and somatic interventions among other modalities.
