I am a licensed social worker who received a master’s degree(LMSW) at Hunter College. I am deeply interested in people and their relationships. In my work, I draw on my meditation and yoga practices, as well as therapeutic dance. I have a lifelong passion for spiritual growth and mind-body health, am oriented psychodynamically and cognitive-behaviorally, and plan to continue my psychoanalytic training in the near future.
My clinical interests include working with adults and adolescents dealing with anxiety, depression, loss and grief, and gender/sex identity exploration. I also have a particular interest in multicultural psychology, which developed based upon my own immigration experience. I believe that cultural issues, such as immigration, acculturation, bilingualism, cultural identity, and cultural stigma significantly impact not only the individuals’ state of mind but also their views of mental health and access to services.
I am fluent in Ukrainian and Russian. My interventions are based on an integrative and holistic approach, and each session is tailored to the unique needs of every client.
