I offer Individual, Child, Family and Group Therapy. Ages seen: 0-5, 6-11, 12-14, 15-17, 18-64, 65+
I use an eclectic approach that incorporates various theories to understand the root causes of my clients' challenges. This includes psychodynamic, attachment-based, family systems, and solution-focused perspectives. I use mindfulness-based and body-centered interventions to tap into internal strengths and build resilience while promoting mutually fulfilling relationships. Presenting challenges have included immigration and adaptation, life-threatening illness, family disruption, domestic violence, homelessness, sexual assault, and substance abuse.
I am a multilingual, energetic, compassionate and dedicated clinician with experience providing therapy, case management and advocacy to at-risk and marginalized populations affected by complex stressors and various forms of trauma. I am an avid student of languages and speak English, Spanish and Russian. Having been born in the former Soviet Union, raised in New York City, and recently living in Chile, I have been enriched by my experience navigating various cultural milieus.
