Hello! My name is Maytal and I teach DBT and mindfulness skills at the LGTC Eating Disorder IOP. I am a licensed clinical psychologist and have been working in the mental health field for over a decade. I enjoy working with a diverse population, and my experience includes eating disorders, dual diagnosis, and general mental health.
I received my doctorate degree from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in Palo-Alto and completed my clinical fellowship at UCSF where I supported physicians and residents. During my fellowship I developed the UCSF mindfulness-based self-compassion program, and taught at the Stanford’s Wellness Education Program.
In my clinical work, I provide clients with holistic therapy that is informed by up-to-date and empirically supported research. My work is deeply grounded in the principles of mindfulness and compassion. I use these modalities to provide clients with practical skills aimed to help them foster self-care, relaxation, and desirable behavioral change. I believe in the importance of a strong mind-body connection and I strive to help individuals strengthen this connection via fostering self-acceptance, balance, and joy. Being a witness to my clients’ recovery journeys is a profound and beautiful experience. I am honored to see their courage and strengths as they go through the process of self-discovery and healing.
