What is your style/approach to therapy?

I work well with high performing, intellectual, and results-oriented professionals navigating issues related to emotion (anxiety, stress, anger, or grief), self-confidence (self-esteem, impostor syndrome, guilt, or shame), or relationships (dating, couples/marriage, parenting, family, or friends). My ideal clients are generally doing well, but a specific part of their lives is getting in the way of being their best selves and living their richest life. You can have a free consultation with me to learn more. Feel free to reach out by hitting the "Contact" button above. I typically respond within one business day to get the ball rolling ASAP!

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

As a PhD level psychologist, I have the highest level of clinical and academic training. My bespoke approach to therapy tailors sessions to your goals and needs. With expertise in both psychotherapy and high-level coaching, I can blend them as needed. This promotes progress towards clear and measurable goals hand-in-hand with emotion-based therapeutic work.

Are there any recurring themes or issues you’ve noticed as you treat people in your area of specialization, and how has this insight guided your approach?

I know how frustrating it is when one small issue starts affecting your work, relationships, or life when you navigate life so well in every other way. In our consultation call, I will learn about your needs, review your cost (including insurance coverage), orient you with clear next steps, and ensure you receive right kind of care for you.

Work History

For over a decade, I have worked with successful professionals including business/practice owners, therapists, doctors, and finance professionals navigate specific challenges in their relationships, challenging thoughts or tough-to-handle emotions, and live their richest lives. I specialize in and have extensive education and training in working with individuals and couples on issues related to emotion (anxiety, stress, grief, anger, etc.), relationships issues (dating, couples/marriage, family, and parenting), and issues of self-esteem (self-confidence, impostor syndrome, guilt and/or shame). In addition to his work with clients, I also speak about adaptability and the human brain; coach entrepreneurs, business owners and leadership, consult for businesses and organizations, supervise and train therapists, and host “The Business Couch with Dr. Yishai,” podcast, covering topics in psychology, business, and high-performance.
