Liat Keren, Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist

I believe that a human being, at any age, has a potential/inner natural ability for self healing and can do so if provided with the right tools, guidance and a safe place.  My therapy room is such a place and my professional approach enable my clients learn to use these helping tools to work through their personal obstacles and issues with my unconditional acceptance, respect  of  client's needs and support (and later on apply them independently  

I work mainly with children and adolescents who have /had experienced or are currently going trough difficulties in one or more of the following :

Changes in the family - Such as divorce, immigration, birth of a sibling, separation, illness, death, etc.

Social issues - Such as lack of social skills or social difficulties , victimizations, bullying, anger management, etc.

Emotional issues - such as anger, difficulties expressing feelings, low self esteem, shyness, depression, fears, etc.
In addition, I specialize in working with children and adolescents who had experienced:
Trauma, whether directly or indirectly,

  Sexual abuse,
Sexual offenders (under 18yrs of age),

–and more.
My therapy practice includes personal and/or group counseling using sand tray therapy, play therapy, and art therapy.
Sand tray therapy is a therapeutic approach, which uses a container of sand and a wide variety of small figures or miniature items allowing the client to choose from and work through his/her obstacle subconsciously.
