She was born and raised in Israel. Before becoming a clinician, she worked for many years as a journalist and a theater director. Her curiosity about the human experience led her to change careers and study psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. She worked several years in the field of treating substance disorders and addressing the underlying causes that led people to get addicted. Later she continued her education and completed her doctorate degree at Alaska Pacific University. She specialized in treating trauma and she constantly develops innovative methods to deal with mental health challenges like depression, anxiety, sleep difficulties, and PTSD.
Her approach to well-being is inspired by mind, body, and heart medicine. She believes that in order to be physically healthy, we need to take care of our mental health and vice versa. This approach led her to explore the integration of behavioral health in primary care.
She founded and managed an integrated behavioral health program at Anchorage Neighborhood Health Center in Alaska. Then she worked in Providence. Today she works as a consultant in the field of primary care and teaches at Alaska Pacific University. She is committed to improving the lives of her patients through a consistent focus on individualized care and connection.
