Therapy can help regulate emotions, make better choices, remove internal obstacles and alleviate symptoms. Together we will explore how old ways of coping no longer serve you and will work to foster new and adaptive ones.
Whatever brings you to therapy, I’m here to assist and partner with you in the process.
I am here to help.
My approach- Integrative psychotherapy
Taking a look inward requires vulnerability and bravery.
Opening up, speaking what has not been spoken, trusting and being vulnerable is courageous and a sign of strength. My approach is holistic and integrative, emphasis client's agency and strengths, recognizing unhealthy patterns, holding space, and improving functioning.
Working from an integrative approach, I utilize evidence-based techniques, such as CBT, ACT and mindfulness, psychodynamic, person-centered, narrative, and attachment approaches with a genuine, direct, down-to-earth therapeutic attitude. Accordingly, I combine in my work practical tools along with non-judgmental emotional process.

Hi, I'm Tamar
I am here to support you in the journey toward rich and meaningful life.
With more than 10 years of experience in counseling in Israel and California, I can provide a fresh perspective and individualized support to help you and your family move on from difficult thoughts and feelings and navigating emotional suffering, anxiety depression, unresolved pain, or trauma.
My style is collaborative and direct, and I generate a warm, safe enough, authentic space for exploration, trust and connection.
I believes that psychotherapy needs to be tailored to individual needs. You are the expert of you.
Together, we will expand your capacity for flexibility, resilience, and growth.
The most beautiful people we known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggles, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.
Beautiful people do not just happen".
My sessions are $160/50min session for individual sessions and 200$ for couple counseling.
I do not accept insurance, but I am happy to provide you with a statement to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
I hold a limited number of sliding scale spots in my practice for individuals and families who are experiencing financial hardship.
