Hagar Ben-Eliezer

Title: Mental Health and Wellness Therapist

Hagar Ben-Eliezer, MC, BCC, is thrilled to be joining the Berkeley Hillel family as the Mental Health Wellness Therapist. Hagar comes with experience from her private practice focusing on grief and trauma, her role as a domestic violence counselor and advocate, and as a board-certified Jewish Chaplain. Hagar received her education at San Francisco Theological Institute, Arizona State University, and San Francisco State University. Hagar completed her chaplain residency at UCSF and Stanford Medical Center.  A long-time educator, leader, and participant of Judaism, she is most happy when helping others.  Hagar can often be found with Theodore, her nine-pound therapy dog, café hopping in Amsterdam, or bragging about actually being a San Francisco native. Hagar’s enthusiasm, sense of humor, and compassion create a warm and welcoming space to seek guidance.
