Hello, I am a PT teacher as well as a Couple and Family therapist and a process workshop facilitator. My interest in PT is in the meeting point between art and therapy.
I am the artistic director of the all-men Jerusalem PT group "Or Chozer" (reflection of light). We are composed of secular and orthodox Jewish actors who come together to foster dialogue between different social and religious groups in Israel. We work with educational, religious and social organizations around Israel.

I am currently pursuing my PHD researching the effects of teaching improvisation to therapists at Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

I've been leading workshops and intensives on specific topics in PT for a few years and enjoy researching this rich art form. My PT special topics include: Ninja actor, Choirs, Dillemas/conflicts, Sexuality and Eroticism, Stillness, and long form enactments.

I enjoy travelling to different IPTN events around the world and share some of my learnings and techniques.

I have written several articles regarding PT in recent years: Ninja Actor in PT (appears in INTERPLAY 2013-06), PT in the Orthodox religious community, Sexuality and Eroticism in PT [Published in The Journal of Practical Psychologist 2013(5) in Russian]. Please feel free to contact me to receive these articles.

I hope to meet you soon.
