"They tried to bury us, they didn't know we were seeds." I was born in Ukraine and am a first generation immigrant. By the age of 12, I had lived on several continents before my final journey to the United States many years ago. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, my background is seasoned with experience in divorce, relationships, parenting, pre-teens and teens. I work with many types of couples, children, and relationship dynamics. I understand how complicated relationships can be, and how important it is to understand and really be actively preesent, heard and understood. We all need to matter, be seen and validated.
