Psychoanalysis is an art and a science that focuses on uncovering patients' unconscious resistances in order to improve the quality of their lives through better understanding of themselves and their relationships. As a mental health professional, I am dedicated to providing therapeutic and analytic help to individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, problems with self-esteem and difficulty with finding their path in life. I am also working with artists and other creative individuals who are having trouble starting and finishing their projects and with people who are going through major life changes.
As a writer and a scholar, I am familiar with performance anxiety, having learned to overcome personal and creative blocks in my life and work through my own analysis. I am also a first-generation immigrant who was schooled in this country and knows about the psychological challenges of adjusting to new situations.
I welcome people working in high-pressure and creative fields, as well as immigrants, people from different cultures, gender orientations and races. I work with adults, adolescents, children and their families. Apart from English-speakers, I welcome people who wish to communicate in Russian. I am also proficient in French.
Психотерапия и психонанализ – это процесс познания себя, искусство и наука, направленные на то, чтобы понять и улучшить свою жизнь, отношения с близкими, и помочь найти свое призвание. Будучи психоаналитиком и психотерапевтом, я работаю с людьми, которые страдают от хронического беспокойства, депрессии, негативного мнения о себе и окружающих, и чувства потерянности в этом мире. Я также работаю с художниками, музыкантами, поэтами, писателями, и другими творческими личностями, помогая им выходить из креативных тупиков и предодолевать кризисы связанные с трудностями создания собственной карьеры.
Как человек, который на своем опыте знаком со сложностями творческого процесса, я хорошо понимаю людей, находящихся в состоянии стресса и неуверенности в себе. Кроме того, я хорошо знакома с трудностями иммиграции и адаптации к другой культуре, прожив в России первые 20 лет своей жизни. Психоанализ помог мне справиться со стрессом переезда заграницу.
Я помогаю недавно приехавшим в США избавляться от комплексов, связанных с чувствами ностальгии, меланхолии, и социальной недостаточности. Я также работаю с детьми старше 5 лет и их родителями. У меня большой опыт работы с пациентами разных культур, гендерных ориентаций и рас.
