I personally see therapy as an investment in yourself, intended to alleviate the inner struggles that keep you feeling stuck.
I hold a Masters in Counseling Psychology from Argosy University. In addition, I have a MD with 13 years practicing experience as a pediatrician in the former Soviet Union.
I have navigated many life transitions myself and overcome many losses in my life, including immigration, career changes, and other challenging situation.
My practice is informed by advanced training from The Couples Therapy Institute, as well as Gottman Couples therapy training, Divorce Mediation training, CBT, EMDR training, Gambling Treatment training and many others. I am always in search of mindfulness, personal growth, self-compassion, confidence, and neuroscience.
I am deeply interested in different cultures, and identity issues for immigrants, and I cultivate a supportive atmosphere that welcomes and normalizes diversity of all kinds.
