About

Maria’s clinical focus includes emerging adults, children, adolescents and families. Her approach focuses on expanding self-awareness and facilitating change. She incorporates evidence based mindfulness practices as well as mainstream psychotherapy approaches. Additionally, she utilizes an experiential Game Consulting method. Her multicultural background and passion for integral psychology allows her to incorporate progressive methods that are tailored to meet the needs of clients from diverse backgrounds. Maria provides therapy in Russian and English.
Maria focuses on providing a supportive environment to explore any concerns a client may bring. How people perceive their reality, react, form their values and beliefs, and ultimately address life challenges all depends on how well they know themselves.
She implements an eclectic therapeutic style that utilizes a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness based treatment, and emotion focused therapy. Her attention also falls on choices clients make in different aspects of their lives and whether it helps or limits their change process. She believes that the change is possible for every client.
