Couples’ and Family Therapy
1
How thrilling it is to fall in love! However, after the initial delight, many engaged couples discover communication problems, differences in expectations, family patterns and customs, attitudes to management of money and time, and the like. Such difficulties are increasing steadily, as quality time with our extended families decreases and Facebook “friendships” use up hours that used to be spent in intimate conversations and time with close friends.

Guidance during the engagement period can prevent many disappointments and frustrations.

Premarital counseling

In Israel, the divorce rate has reached 30% -- and in some cities, it is as high as 50%!
Nevertheless, sad and angry couples who decide to invest time, effort and re-thinking in their marriage can find marital happiness and create a secure, loving and nurturing environment for their children.

Couples’ counseling

Israelis have been blessed with long life-spans. Many families have four and even five living generations.
There is much joy and wisdom in extended families. However, there are often also frictions, thorny issues and the need to cope with aging.
An objective and therapeutic perspective can help your family deal successfully with these complexities.

Multi-generational families

A sensitive and skilled therapist is able to help people of various backgrounds and cultures. However, sometimes religious individuals or families feel more secure with a religious therapist who understands their world-view, social milieu and modern Orthodox “language”.

Therapy for religious people

During the first years after aliya, families go through an adjustment period. Life in Israel does not always match pre-aliya dreams and expectations. Children, and especially teen-agers, often hotly resent (what they see as) their parents’ forcing them to leave their friends and family and live in a foreign country.
A completely bi-lingual and bi-cultural therapist is the best choice for people having difficulty adjusting to Israeli society and for families in which a cultural gap makes the generation gap wider and more severe.

Counseling for families from English-speaking countries
