Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, difficulty relating to your partner or find yourself relying upon alcohol or another substance to get through the day? If so, I have helped many individuals and couples recover from these debilitating emotional and relationship challenges. I hold a Master of Science in Psychiatric Social Work from Columbia University and Bachelor of Arts in Literature from the University of California, Berkeley. My experience includes intensive work with mood disorders, trauma, addiction, couples therapy and bereavement in private practice as well as inpatient rehab and inpatient psychiatric settings.
Having a confidential place to explore what is causing imbalance or stress in one's life is the starting place. Exploring one's emotional and psychological process will open the path to freeing inner turmoil, indecision and personal struggle, while also finding solutions for better communication within relationships and navigating one's life path and career. Psychotherapy enables you to break free of repetitive patterns that prevent happiness. Finding one's identity and purpose in life is an ongoing question even after one is 50 years old. It is okay to question, review and reinvent without having to stop the ship.
I have been working with women in private practice for 32 years. In a loving and safe environment we will challenge together such issues as: Adolescent/Parent problems; Depression; Loneliness; Marital and Divorce crossroads; Family Relationships; Abuse in all its forms; Sex, Drugs and Alcohol concerns, and "Who am I and where am I going?". There are many other topics that women come up against in their struggle to find themselves, these are just a few. When women find solidity within themselves their lives become clear.
Are you going through tough times? Wondering if if therapy could help? Your goal may be to understand, to change, to enhance your life. There's no time like the present to start this exciting process! I aim to create a safe, comfortable and engaging environment in which our collaboration can be fruitful for you. With 20+ years of experience, as well as training in human development, I am ready to help with depression, anxiety, parenting and relationships. Fluent in English and Russian, I have enjoyed working with people of different ages, backgrounds and walks of life. Looking Forward to meeting with you, Dr. K

When you are physically ill you turn to your doctor, hoping they can help you feel better. Problems like depression, anxiety, impulsivity, uncontrollable anger, guilt, or low self-confidence can be as painful, if not more so, than physical illness; they can also create serious relationship and work difficulties. I have over 25 years of experience and I have helped many adults, adolescents, and couples who had received limited or no benefit from previous therapists, other doctors, or medications. I work well with people who are skeptical of, or intimidated by, talk therapy.
I offer an Integrative and Personalized approach to ensure optimal results in Physical and Mental health through the use of Proper Nutrition, Exercise, Nutrition Supplementation, Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, and Medications.
I believe in the ability of all people to make changes in their lives for the better. Within the therapeutic relationship, I believe that we are partners - learning together and walking together down the road to wellness. I am not the expert on you and I don't strive to be. I believe that a positive working relationship between therapist and client is essential to the process of change, and that starts with unconditional positive regard. I look forward to working with you - talking with you and to you, rather than at you.

We will work collaboratively to resolve your current issue while we examine patterns of thinking and behavior in order to avoid or quickly resolve future stumbling blocks.

I work with children age nine through nineteen, as well as adults; specializing in anxiety, stress reduction, divorce/changing families, and parent coaching.
Everyone encounters problems in their lives. Most of us, most of the time feel able to overcome them or weather the storm and find a way forward. Yet most of us, at some point face problems which feel overwhelming and for which we need outside help. Regardless of how severe or long-standing your problems are I am confident I can help. Learning new ways of being and adjusting how we take care of ourselves and our life can and should be empowering, positive, and uplifting.
I welcome all inquires, particularly from individuals who may be new to therapy, struggling with their identity, sexual orientation, and self-esteem; grappling with familial, social, or relationship issues; or feeling overburdened by work stressors, insomnia, depression, anxiety, and disturbing thoughts or beliefs. I tend to work best with people who seek a nonjudgmental, trauma-informed, and warm environment. My priority is not to label you but to get to know who you are, where you're coming from, where you'd like to go, and how best to support you in getting there.
