I hired WholeStar for a young niece who was lacking in life skills and social skills. Ayelet, has become an ally and a mentor and has helped boost my niece's self confidence and is helping her find gainful employment.Apr 8, 2016Verified
If you truly want to do serious self exploration in a safe caring environment...Ayelet is the guide for you. Be ready, open and not afraid. This will be the best thing you will ever do for yourself and your loved ones. Kind regards, BruceApr 7, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer a sliding scale based on client's ability. My usual fee is 90$ for individual sessions and 120$ for couples or family sessions. Each session is an hour long.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always meet the clients for one free session in order to see if it's a good fit. Client-therapist relationship is the foundation of the therapeutic process and if the client doesn't feel comfortable, I help to refer her out. In the first session I usually go over the main reason why the client decided to seek help and we go over reasonable expectations.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a BA in philosophy that is useful with existential issues and Logo Therapy. I have a Masters degree in social work. I have a mediation certification and experience in mediating court ordered cases - these skills are extremely important and useful when working with couples and families. I have an excessive education in Applied Existential Therapy from the Boulder Psychotherapy Institute. I have 10 years of teaching experience that is very useful when working with children, teens and families. I have a military background of five years as an officer in the Israeli Army which comes in very handy when working with Veterans.
