Rulik_PerlaRulik Perla, PhD, MFT

My professional work includes psychotherapy with clients in private practice, supervising and training therapy interns, and adding human dimension to the working of high-tech companies.

Since 2009, I have supervised individuals and groups at the Alameda Crisis Center and offered consultation for their group leaders. I also supervise both individuals and groups in my private practice and run a consultation group for recently licensed professionals who do not need supervision any more yet appreciate consultation and support in their new practice. Between 2010 and 2014, I supervised both individuals and groups at the JFK Holistic Counseling Center.

I was born in Israel in 1955 and grew up during several wars. As all Israelis I served in the army for three years. For my undergraduate work I studied Music and Philosophy at the Tel-Aviv University.

Later I became a software engineer and worked professionally on many aspects of software design in England, Belgium, Italy, Israel and the United States.

in 2002 I graduated from John F Kennedy University, with MS in Counseling Psychotherapy and found my vocation.

I trained and mentored with Eric Greenleaf PH.D, Stephen Gilligan PH.D, and Gary Hoeber MFT.

I am an associate of The Milton H. Erickson Institute of the Bay Area and a member of CAMFT.

My PhD in Clinical Psychology from Meridian University can be reviewed here.
