Karny Gigi, PhD Educational Psychologist
Education: I have a PhD in psychobiology from Haifa University
Clinical Experience: As a school psychologist, I work with headmasters and school staff, both on systematic and particular challenges. I also diagnose and treat young children and teenagers dealing with emotional challenges, behavioral problems, social difficulties, or trauma. Additionally, I have extensive experience in parental guidance and working on parenting skills. I am currently doing my internship as an educational psychologist with the Tel Aviv educational psychological service, where part of my work is to advise parents and educational staff on issues related to compatibility for children in different educational facilities.
Areas of Expertise: Individual therapy for kids and adolescents with various emotional challenges and behavioral problems, diagnosis and therapy in the field of attention disorders and learning disabilities. As manager of the ‘Maslul’ program at the Tel Aviv municipality, I accompany parents of children with extravert behavioral problems from a systematic perspective, providing support and guidance to all of the adults taking part in the child’s upbringing and education.
Therapeutic Approach: The world we live in poses a lot of challenges for parents and kids. Sometimes, we just need some support or guidance to help us navigate through these challenges. I believe in a holistic approach in working with kids and adolescents, and in the capacity of parents going through a meaningful process to better understand their children and gain the tools to assist and support them through their challenges.
Yael Kutchinsky, Developmental Psychologist

In recent years, I have taught developmental psychology for health professionals.
Areas of Expertise: I have extensive training in treating children with developmental problems, such as ASD or eating disorders in children. I am also trained in working with parents in child-psychotherapy.
Therapeutic Approach: I conduct parent training with an inter-subjective perspective, combining tools from the field of parental mentalization and “the circle of security”, as well as cognitive-behavioral components.
Shanni Giladi, Psychotherapist
Education: I have a master’s degree in clinical social work from Yeshiva University in NY. In addition, I studied 3 years of psychotherapy, with an expertise in third wave CBT approaches.
Clinical Experience: For the past 6 years, I have been working in my private practice, where I meet with teenagers and adults who at their core, long to feel seen, valued, understood, secure, and free – but at times, end up being stuck in trauma’s frustrating loops of misunderstanding, crisis or disconnection. In addition, I have worked for 4 years in a youth center that provides short term therapy for adolescents, ages 12-25.
Areas of Expertise: I work with adolescents and adults who experience a variety of concerns, including, anxiety, trauma, sexual problems, relationship issues, life crises, as well as clients who feel that they don’t love and accept who they are, are self- judgmental, have low self-worth, and those who are not inspired by the life they’ve created.
Therapeutic Approach: I am an integrative therapist, combining dynamic and CBT approaches according to the needs of the patient. I believe in our ability to expand our awareness and evoke our inner self-healer. Sometimes it’s a long process, and sometimes it’s a focused, short term one. I believe that the purpose of therapy is to enable a process that expands one’s version of oneself and gives someone the tools so they can choose how to react to what comes their way.
