Some of the topics or issues that persons, in the last 20 years, have been addressing me for are;
- Developmental problems of the family and adaptation to new situations such as entering into marriage, the birth of a child, starting a child in kindergarten or school, puberty and adolescence, separation of children and parents, age of parents and life without children in the family
- Separation and divorce
- Marital and family conflicts
- Loss and grief
- Social adaptation
- Individual and professional stress.
I cultivate a humanistic, depathologizing approach in work. I believe in the strength and potential of every human being to live life in harmony with himself and with his environment. I see a family as a unique organization. Working with an individual, I work indirectly to build important relationships in relationships, marriage, family, and the environment.
I have experience in leading groups for professionals, with the aim of preventing burn-out and educational groups and workshops for professionals and others. I do therapy in BHS languages and in English.
