About my work

I believe that every child and every person has everything they need to fulfill their human potential. I work with parents and couples. I yearn to provide my clients with the conditions necessary for this fulfillment to become a reality.

I believe that relationships are of the highest priority for us as humans. That’s why I specialize on relationships and attachment. That’s also why I treasure my relationship with my clients and create them a safe and warm environment in our sessions.
I also believe that Nature had a plan when it created us the way we are. The function of our brain is not always clear to us at first glance and often seems to be pathological or dysfunctional. But I believe the brain is highly adaptive and complex and it usually has good reasons to do what it does to protect us, to help us function. That’s why I am a follower of the developmental approach- I choose to work with Nature, not despite/against it.

When working with parents I do not focus on symptoms or diagnoses. Instead I take a holistic, non-direct approach. I look for the reasons underlying the behaviour, and together with the child’s caretakers try to find ways to help their child. I don’t tell the caretakers what to do. I help them to see the child’s needs and to find ways that suit them to fulfill those needs, that would enable the child to grow and prosper.
I help parents to become the answer to their children’s problems. Consultations take place without the child’s presence or even knowledge that the parent is getting a consultation about them. I help them to see their children through a different lens- the lens of psychological-emotional development and of relationship. I believe that parents are the biggest experts in their children, and all they need to do is start trusting their deep caring instincts, and my job in this process is to empower them.

In my work with couples I teach the couple to communicate differently – using Imago dialogue. Imago is a magical tool that enables the couple to see and hear each other better. The conversation moves to another level – a deeper and more mindful one. It helps them grow together and support each other on the way to the fulfillment of their human potential. When using Imago, the couple starts to see and appreciate each other for who they really are. And as a bonus, it helps them to see their relationship with their children (if they have any) from a new angle, and gives them a wonderful tool of non-violent, empathetic and accepting communication with them.

To ensure high quality of my work, I undergo continuous personal therapy, frequent intervisions with my colleagues and have access to supervisions when needed. I also continuously educate myself in the field of psychology by taking academic and professional courses.

  • Attachment problems
