Gital Wolf Poupko has been a drama therapist since 1999. She has a BA from Barnard College at Columbia University, and an MA from Lesley University, Boston. Gital is accredited by ICET (the Israeli Association of Creative and Expressive Therapies) as a therapist and supervisor. She is a lecturer at Mivhar College in Bnei Brak.

Gital works with individuals as well as groups, with children, adolescents and adults of all ages. Gital has extensive experience with special needs children and adults. For Gital, each client is a world unto her/himself. The client determines the nature and pace of their therapeutic process. Play, movement, art and writing bring forth the unique strengths inherent in each participant.

Gital is an observant Jew, with a rich background in Judaic Studies (Bible, Rabbinic Literature, and Jewish philosophy). Gital incorporates elements of Jewish literature and tradition in her therapeutic work, and is particularly attuned to the needs of Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox clients.

Gital was born in the US and moved to Israel as an adolescent. She is fluent in English and Hebrew, and – having “been there” herself - has a special place in her heart for new immigrants.

The six leading actors in Gital’s life are her husband, Avraham, and their five children. They live in Pisgat Zeev, Jerusalem.
