I am a licensed social worker (LMSW) from Hunter College who currently works as a bi-lingual (Russian/English) psychotherapist at two private practices located in Brooklyn Heights and Manhattan, and as a part-time family support specialist at Baruch College’s Early Learning Center. I earned my BA in Psychology from Baruch College, and am currently undergoing training in Somatic Experiencing to connect the mind and the body in therapy. My training experiences include yoga teacher training, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Study Center (PPSC), Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACT), and Elmhurst Hospital.
I draw on somatic models and mindfulness and enjoy integrating them into yoga and talk therapy to work with trauma responses and relational challenges. I am devoted to my work with adults and adolescents who explore the beauty of their multifaceted identity (multiculturalism, LGBTQI+, spirituality). The intention is to help you safely process emotions and understand the states of mind that play into complexities on the inter- (you and others) and intrapersonal (within yourself) levels.
