Moving from Israel to the U.S. can bring up personal and relationship challenges, and often people experience conflict, tension, and arguments.
Family and friends are not here with us to share our experience, so you might feel lonely and isolated. Difficulty with language and culture, inequality in terms of career opportunities, and raising children in a new environment can create personal and marital imbalances that undermine daily life.
As a marriage counselor and psychotherapist, I teach people tools to overcome the obstacles that prevent them from finding meaning and satisfaction in their personal and professional lives. I specialize in couples counseling, helping couples reconnect and improve their communication and intimacy. My style of psychotherapy is practical, interactive, and nonjudgmental.
Doing therapy in Hebrew and with someone that understands the culture can be invaluable. Contact me for a free phone consultation. Sessions are conducted via Skype or in my San Francisco office: 870 Market St., Suite 907, San Francisco, CA 94102.
