After more than 20 years as a psychotherapist I am still passionate about my work. I love working with people and am deeply moved by our ability to grow and change, throughout life. I feel privileged to be invited into your  world and to be able to offer assistance. I believe that working together we can find authentic and rewarding ways of resolving difficult issues, of living a good life and of being in relationships.

Irit Felsen, Ph.D.


I work with individuals, families, couples, adults, adolescents and groups. My approach to treatment is based on the particular needs and the unique situation of each individual case. I use a variety of modalities for enhancing change in individuals and couples.
