I started to study Psychodrama in 2009 at International Network of Expressive Arts Therapy Training Centers " Isis", Bar Ilan University, Israel. I was trained by great professionals (my Primary Trainer was Yaacov Naor, MA, C.A.G.S, TEP) and graduated this 3 years program at 2012. During the second year, I had a practicum at the Barzilai University Medical Center, Child and Adolescent Unit, Ashkelon. I was supervised by clinical psychologists and psychiatrists. After 2 years of practicum, I was offered to continue my work as psychodramatist at this Medical Center. I worked in different departments, doing an individual and group therapy for children and adolescents with behavioral and emotional disorders, children on the autism spectrum. I led psychodrama groups, supporting and educating parents in the process of recognizing the emotional needs of their kids. I led a psychodrama group at the Hostel of Mental Disabled, working with mentally disabled aged 30-65.
In March 2014, I moved to Bay area with my husband and 2 kids. I knew that I need to find my place in psychodrama community here in US. Otherwise, I wouldn't feel at home here.
I attended 1.5 year of different workshops and professional training in Bay Moreno Institute ( led by Sylvia Israel LMFT, TEP, RDT/BCT and John Olesin MA, TEP) and accepted my American CP in March 2016 and PAT in July 2016. I joined a professional team of TSI led by Kate Hudgins, TSM (PhD, TEP) and opened a Center of Healing and Creativity "The Way Home" in Sunnyvale where I work with groups and individuals in English, Russian and Hebrew. In 2014, I developed my own healing vision and action model The Way Home-to your True Self and released a book The Way Home: Discovering the Path to your Truth, Nature and Inner Treasures (Amazon, Kindle). I feel very grateful to be recognized and accepted by the warm and creative psychodrama family here in US!!!
