"Bridging between the real and the ideal"
My therapeutic approach
Having over 30 years of experience, both as a psychotherapist in a private clinic and as an organizational consultant - my approach towards therapy has been shaped to become pragmatic and businesslike, yet aiming to go beyond cosmetic short-term improvements.
Adults and adolescents
Stress and trauma
Anxiety disorders and depression
I completed my academic education at Utrecht University, where I obtained a bachelor and a master degree in Clinical Psychology, followed by a PhD in Social Sciences.
1980-1983: specialization in clinical psychology in the Academic Medical Center for Psychiatry at the University of Amsterdam.
1984: obtained the certification as a senior clinical psychologist by the Dutch association for clinical psychology and as a psychotherapist by the European association for psychotherapy.
1994: Registered as a licensed psychologist under the Israeli Ministry of Health.
Since 1985 I have a private psychotherapy clinic - first in Holland and later in Israel.
Until 2000, in parallel to psychotherapy, I have been an organizational consultant and a director of post-academic programs for senior executives in the Faculty of Business Management at Rotterdam University.
Since 2000, I have provided patients in Zikhron Yaakov and its surrounding a wide range of psychological and counseling services to suit their needs. Furthermore, I expanded therapy also through Skype sessions and thereby able to accept native Hebrew/Dutch speaking patients who live overseas.
Whether you’re an individual, a couple or a family looking for help - my psychotherapy sessions are designed to strengthen your confidence and assist you in the healing process.
You are more than welcome to contact me in order to discuss more specifically.
