My approach to practicing psychology is transparent and collaborative in nature. Clients report that I am grounding, honest, and easy to talk to. I approach the evaluation process grounded in the philosophy and techniques of collaborative/therapeutic assessment. A profound respect for the intentions of all parties that intersect in the life of a child is essential. My goal is to involve all stakeholders in the evaluation process, from deciding its goals, sharing test results, preparing written reports, and communicating results.

My story started in Belarus where I lived as a child until I moved to Israel following the Cherbobyl nuclear disaster. It was in Israel that I discovered my passion for psychology and mindfulness. In 2013, I started my first private practice after completing a two-year training in Hakomi Mindfulness-Centered Somatic Psychotherapy. After 3 years of private practice, I moved to the US where I pursued my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies. During my practicum, I worked and received training at the Integral Counseling Center at Church Street which specializes in Gestalt therapy.

Sometimes, when we hear the call of fate, we listen with an inner ear for quiet whispers of the soul. This call arrives in many forms. My consultation practice brings together Jungian analysis with expressive arts therapy. I offer a safe place for you to recognize your unique identity. In our work together, we will follow the varied threads of your story so you can weave and shape your own destiny. My approach uses verbal and non-verbal methods, encouraging spontaneity and the healing influence of the imagination. These sensorial processes lead to an aesthetic and spiritual understanding of soul.

I offer humor, warmth and unconditional acceptance of whatever you bring into session. I've worked with many different issues across many different age groups including: depression, anxiety, existential and relationship issues and trauma. Many clients come in wanting to unpack their past- others need to focus on the present. I can meet you wherever you are and help you develop a healthy relationship to yourself and others. Children's psychological needs often represent themselves a little differently, but ultimately require the same safe space to explore, unpack and process.

As a feminist therapist, I find that those who come to me yearn to un-yoke themselves from trauma, desire creative freedom, as well as those who have a desire transform relationships and institutions. I believe that therapy can be an integration point for your journey toward getting closer to your truth. The more you are able to be self-aware and accept yourself, the more you can live fully and authentically. Therapy, and life for that matter, is a beautiful, painful and mysterious process of becoming.
