Announcement icon Due to Covid-19, I started to offer sessions via teleconference. I will continue to do so and now have in-person sessions as well.

About

I work with all age groups and variety of issues, like anxiety, PTSD, trauma and relationships. Which includes relationships with people in order to achieve peace in the families and friendships. Relationship with food: bulimia, anorexia, obesity; I work with individuals who are considering Bariatric surgery; as well as those who had one, and are not as successful in keeping the weight off, as they would like. Relationship with time: procrastination, lateness, and finding time for everything you want when it sees like there is never enough.
I mostly use the CBT method to help clients modify behavior in order to reach life goals. I work with families who have adopted internationally or domestically with difficulties acclimate to a new family dynamics. Being fluent in Russian and working for over a decade with orphanages/ orphans in Ukraine gives me this unique knowledge set.
I am accepting new clients of any age, with any issues, and from any geographic location. My personal promise: "You will leave every session refreshed, with weight off your shoulders, and with an assignment to help you reach your goals".
