Hello, I'm Bar and I am so glad you made your way here! My own path to counseling psychology started miles away in Israel, and brought me to San Francisco where I have learned from world-class professors, highly skilled supervisors, and diverse clients. The way I hold therapy is viewing the self as whole, and I am curious about the exploration of all the different parts of ourselves that assemble together as mind, body and spirit.
I graduated from Ariel University in Israel with a Bachelor's Degree in Behavioral Sciences in 2014, and from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco with a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology in 2019.
During my practicum, I trained in one of CIIS’ community clinic that was rooted in Gestalt psychology and the only one of its kind in the country. In addition, I had the privilege of taking a one-year intensive in mindfulness-centered somatic psychotherapy training, specifically known as Hakomi Therapy.
Through interactive and engaged therapy, I work with clients to learn more about what is alive for them at the present moment.
In my own experience as a client and in my own work as a therapist, I have found that having a greater awareness to our mind, body and spirit can help us be in touch with our authentic voice. I believe that learning more about ones’ unique voice can increase the sense of choice in the way one engages with oneself and with the world.
My approach is warm, intuitive, and tenderhearted, and I invite you to start your journey with me to explore anything you are curious about in your life. I look forward to meeting you as you are!
I support clients who are facing life challenges. I work with individuals who are curious about:
♢ Life transitions
♢ Relationships issues
♢ Family dynamics
Together we can create space that may allow you to feel more connected with your inner voice and make decisions that are aligned with yourself.
I work with children through play-based interactions and hold a framework that is based in developmental psychology.
Sessions are offered in English and Hebrew.
