I am a clinical psychologist who has practiced for over 20 years in the Boston area. I work with individual adults, older adolescents and couples, helping them improve relationships and manage their lives more comfortably. My goal is to provide a safe environment for conversations where my clients can freely express their thoughts and feelings and gain a better perspective on themselves - that alone can be healing.

Over the years I developed an integrative style in my work with clients, where I incorporate different therapeutic approaches including psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, existential and humanistic.

I was born in Russia and live in US since 1978. I received my training in clinical psychology from Lesley University and from William James College - the former MSPP. Since I am fluent both in English and in Russian I also provide services to the Russian speaking population.
