We are excited to announce the opening of our new English and Hebrew teen therapy programs funded by the kupat cholim!
Kav L’Noar in partnership with the Lamerhav Institute is now offering goal-oriented therapy for young people aged 12-21 and their parents, in our new beautiful location near Jerusalem's central bus station.
Our team of therapists includes both native English and Hebrew speakers all certified by the Ministry of Health and the Kupot Cholim. They are experienced with working with this age group and focus on evidence-based professional therapeutic methods.
Lauren Kirschenbaum earned her BS in psychology from Brandeis University. She then went on to receive a Masters in education from Yeshiva University’s Azrieli School of Jewish Education and Administration. While teaching, Lauren realized that her truest passion was in helping her students outside the classroom, and so she received a Masters in social work from Fordham University. Lauren is trained in family therapy and likes to work with different modalities while working with her clients. Lauren made Aliyah in December 2017 and loves working with teens and young adults; the future of Am Yisrael in Eretz Yisrael.
