I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a life coach. I received a Masters degree in Integral Counseling Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco and a Masters in Social Psychology from Tel-Aviv University in Israel. Before becoming a therapist, I worked as a marketing manager in Hi Tech companies and later as a management consultant and coach.
I am an experienced speaker and workshop leader, and I have worked in many types of organizations including Hi Tech companies, non profits and universities (few examples include Hewlett Packard, Jewish Federation, Stanford University, UC Berkeley, The Psychotherapy Institute).
My work combines psychotherapy, life coaching, and spiritual guidance and is practical and transformative. It is also influenced by mindfulness meditation and a deep understanding of the body-mind connection. I'm experienced in Hakomi, a powerful somatic approach to healing and growth, and currently being trained as a teacher in that method.
When I was about thirteen years old I experienced an episode of social isolation, where many of my friends suddenly turned their back on me. Overnight I became isolated and felt lonely and distant.
In the coming years I kept searching for a way to understand what happened. I became fascinated with personal growth and passionate about understanding relationships. I kept wondering, what is my potential? How can I change and grow and then support others in their process?
In my search for answers I was trained in life coaching, studied social psychology and psychotherapy, meditated and learned eastern and western philosophy. Following my heart's desire, I also changed my career twice from marketing to management consulting and finally to coaching and psychotherapy.
Most important, I got support from a skilled therapist and met a woman that later became my wife, and was inspired and transformed by our relationship. Today, I bring all this knowledge and experiences into my work with clients.
I know how hard it is to ask for help, and how frustrating it can be to feel like you are not living the life you want. I'd love to help.
