I am not I
I am this one
Walking beside me whom I do not see,
Whom at times I manage to visit,
And whom at other times I forget.
– Juan Ramon Jimenez
Rulik 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.
