About Me

I am an experienced psychologist with specialist training in neurodevelopmental conditions, educational/cognitive assessments and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy approaches. I am Registered with the Health Professional Council (HPC) and Chartered with the British Psychological Society (BPS). You may check these registrations by visiting these agencies' websites.

I grew up in Romania, and then lived in Israel, where I earned my undergraduate degree from Tel Aviv University. I also lived in France and Belgium, where I continued to develop my professional career, going on to qualify as a psychologist once I moved to settle in the UK.

I have acquired my experience working and training in the NHS in a variety of services: Great Ormond Street Hospital, North East London Community Mental Health Team, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Team at the University College Hospital and South West London and St George’s Child and Adolescent Mental Health Learning Disability Service. I have also worked in several private settings: Capio Nightingale Hospital in London, Cygnet Hospital in Harrow, and The Child and Family Practice in London.

I work closely with a number of other highly skilled professionals with specific expertise in various areas, such as psychiatrists, neurodevelopmental psychiatrists, child and adolescent psychiatrists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and paediatricians. I consider myself privileged to have a career that enables me to help children, young people, families and adults make positive changes in their lives and achieve emotional well- being.

I am also a clinical practice tutor at the Anna Freud/ University College of London IAPT Autistic Spectrum Disorders/ Learning Disabilities Programme for clinicians and their supervisors, where I am involved in research and delivery of courses for other professionals. Most importantly, I see myself as a passionate and dedicated advocate for neurodiversity and mental health.
