Personal profile

About Me

In addition to being a psychologist, I am a researcher and lecturer in the field of neuroscience. I have been located in Tel Aviv for years, and I am married and a father of two.

As a psychologist who treats children and youth with social difficulties in a private setting, I specialized in accompanying the child from a tender age until his optimal integration into the community. In the past I lectured in various programs for special education, and even at conferences such as "Talking Autism".

As a scientist I lecture, research and guide students in the neuroscience program (which I previously directed) at Bar Ilan University. I deepened my broad education in well-known research centers in Israel and abroad at YALE. MSSM & Columbia University.

From my experience, I know that rehabilitation, recovery and exit to a normal life is possible within a period of several years and with the hard work of a team of therapists and... of course, the parents.
