Dr. Batya L. Ludman, Psy.D., FT

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Psychotherapy, Counseling, and Assessment
of Children, Adolescents,
Adults, Couples, and Families

I am a licensed clinical psychologist who has been serving the English speaking community of Central Israel for the past 15 years. With over 30 years of therapy and counseling experience in the United States, Canada, and Israel. My clients come from as close as Ra'anana, Kfar Saba, and Herzliya, and as far away as Netanya, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Zichron Ya'acov and Beersheva. I also have worked extensively with the American and Israeli communities offering workshops on stress management, coping, and the psychological impact of terror and trauma.

My articles have been widely published in both professional and lay literature and I have been quoted in the media from CNN and CBC to Reader's Digest. Additionally, I developed and continue to write a bi-weekly "Psychology" column for the Jerusalem Post Magazine, where various psychological topics across the lifespan are dealt with in detail. I have lectured extensively to the lay community because I believe that it is essential to make psychology accessible to everyone.

I work with adults, children, adolescents, couples, families, and groups providing assessment, consultation, and psychotherapy (including short term solution focused and cognitive behavior therapy [CBT], as well as using techniques such as EMDR and SE), as well as bereavement and trauma counseling.
