I love helping adults who are ready to make a change and want to address: trauma, relationship difficulties, issues with food and body image, chronic stress, anxiety, panic, or depression through building tangible tools and mindfulness-based skills. I welcome clients of diverse backgrounds and seek to provide respectful and culturally sensitive services to all. As an immigrant myself, I have a special appreciation for the experience of first and second generation immigrants. My approach draws from mindfulness, body-oriented interventions, parts work, evidence-based modalities, advances in neuroscience, and attachment research.

It takes courage to reach out for support. Often people reach out when their usual strategies to manage their life fail, and they feel stuck. Are you feeling like you can't think or talk your way out of your unhappiness? The role of the therapist is as a facilitator or guide to help you identify the patterns that are no longer working for you, and develop strategies to heal and change. I will work with you to develop a plan in therapy that meets your individual needs and goals. My style is to give a combination of compassion, honest feedback, non-judgment, humor, and warmth.

I enjoy working with adolescents(16 and older), adults and couples. I have fourteen years experience as a clinician and have been licensed for the past 10 years. I use many different tools to facilitate change, including CBT and ACT for symptom relief and the techniques and processes of Hakomi, a body-centered depth psychotherapy, which integrates western psychology, advances in neurobiology, and the mindfulness practices of Buddhist Meditation. I believe that decreasing unhealthy stress, restoring trust in relationships, and changing self-limiting belief systems can lead to transformation. I use a warm, friendly, and engaged style of therapy.

Anxiety sucks. It can keep us stuck in an exhausting inner battle of fear and panic. Perhaps you have had a panic attack and worry about having another one. Or maybe you find yourself frequently worrying about your relationship with your partner. Obsessive thoughts might be keeping you up at night and disrupting your ability to focus at work. And you might feel shame or embarrassment that you can't get your anxiety under control. You might be trying to cope with your anxiety by staying busy, distracting yourself with technology, or turning to drugs or drinking. The good news is, it does not have to be this way.

How do you get in the way of living the life you want? Do you constantly judge yourself? Noticing all the ways you "fail" to live up to way you "should" be.

Therapy provides an opportunity to be completely yourself, without regard to the pressures or demands of the world around you. When you feel safe, you're more free to talk about change. I'll help you identify and build upon your strengths, and then support you in becoming more aware of patterns that hold you back from achieving your goals. I believe therapy is an important investment in health and will help you create patterns that form the foundation for a satisfied life.

My story started in Belarus where I lived as a child until I moved to Israel following the Cherbobyl nuclear disaster. It was in Israel that I discovered my passion for psychology and mindfulness. In 2013, I started my first private practice after completing a two-year training in Hakomi Mindfulness-Centered Somatic Psychotherapy. After 3 years of private practice, I moved to the US where I pursued my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies. During my practicum, I worked and received training at the Integral Counseling Center at Church Street which specializes in Gestalt therapy.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviors to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Berkeley or for a Berkeley ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Berkeley are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Berkeley. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Berkeley

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Berkeley you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Berkeley and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Berkeley or family therapy in Berkeley.
