ABOUT

RICH KIRSCHEN M.A.
Certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapist

I work with new and veteran olim (immigrants to Israel) helping those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, trauma, addiction and or family issues.

When it comes to therapy, it’s all about fit. Finding the right therapist who provides you with a strong therapeutic alliance is the primary factor in determining success in therapy. And through thoughtful, caring, and effective treatment, I offer you an action plan that will give you the tools to live the life that you deserve.

For over twenty-five years, I have been counseling individuals, helping them understand their family of origin, and the strategies they developed while navigating early adverse experiences. Together, I will help you develop the skills to change your behavior in a positive way, fostering a deep sense of relief.

Students on Short-Term and Long-Term Programs

In addition to my work with new and veteran olim (immigrants to Israel), I also have considerable experience working with students who are here on short-term and long-term programs. Although studying in Israel can be the adventure of a lifetime, immersive programs in Israel can often trigger intense emotional distress for young people who have been taken out of their comfort zone and are far away from home.
