Sanskrit is the ancient language in which the Hindu and yogic texts were written in. Sanskrit uses an alphabet of 50+ letters, while in English we only have 26 letters. When Sanskrit is written in Latin symbols, i.e. in English letters there are some special ways of writing all the letters that are beyond the English 26 alphabet letters permit us. This is called transliteration.
When you encounter Sanskrit words like: Śīrṣāsana, or Ājñā how are they pronounced? The first will sound something like ‘Shirshasana’, and the second like ‘Agya’.

Throughout my career, I’ve discovered that there are a couple of areas that I’m best at working in, and I continually strive to get even more skilled in working within those areas. One of those areas is finding the hidden causes, the hidden pattern behind your difficulties, I have done a lot of this work on myself, piecing together the story of my life and understanding why I am the way that I am. And I use the same skill for your favor.
My second area of focus is working with trauma victims. Whether it is sexual trauma, accidents or combat trauma. I myself am an ex combatant, and the pain of dealing with disturbing memories, images, thoughts and emotions is not foreign to me. In my journeys into myself I passed through certain circles of something I can only describe as hell, I will be honored to walk with you the journey of healing from your past traumas.
My final area of specialty is working with the body and specifically with the body in transpersonal psychotherapy. Part of my own healing journey utilized the body to enter into deep experiences of healing, introducing others to these states of healing and sharing this space with others is now my greatest joy.
My education includes a B.A. in Psychology from the Open University in Israel, as well as professional trainings in transpersonal psychotherapy, childhood therapy, breathwork, family constellations, somatic experiencing, yoga teaching & therapy. My experience includes working as yoga teacher for many years, work as a rehabilitation youth instructor and running my private psychotherapy clinic.
