I am a licensed New York State Clinical Psychologist who received a Doctorate degree from Adelphi University. My goal is to help my clients achieve fulfillment in their lives. Feelings of dissatisfaction, lack of trust, lack of control, and low self-esteem can be very difficult to cope with and they frequently result in anxiety. Recognizing the impact that seemingly insignificant worries can have on people?s lives led me to develop a special interest in treating anxiety disorders. I have become an expert in this area and I am able to offer you help if you feel that anxiety has become an obstacle to leading a happy life. During my training and professional experience I have also developed expertise in the treatment of depression, personality disorders, trauma, eating disorders, addictions, and Attention Deficit Disorder. In addition, I conducted work with women who suffered from Postpartum Depression and my research in this area was published in the Journal of Group Psychotherapy. My intention is to offer you a warm and empathic therapeutic environment. Together we could explore your concerns and help you make the changes you desire.

More Info About My Practice

I am a strong believer that our upbringing has a tremendous impact on who we become as individuals and that our early life experiences continue to affect our relationships and wellbeing throughout our lives. This belief has led me to develop a specialty in relationship issues. My extensive study and research through my doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology focused on ways in which individuals' upbringing and personality styles affect their ability to form relationships, and on the issues of romantic jealousy and infidelity.
I have been privileged to work with people from a variety of backgrounds. I was trained to work with children, adults, couples, and families utilizing individualized approach to treatment. When necessary, I administer psychological testing, which frequently helps guide treatment. I am fluent in the Russian language and offer psychotherapy and psychological evaluations in both English and Russian languages. In addition to helping you solve the immediate problems that bring you to treatment, my goal is to help you develop a better understanding of yourself and to bring about lasting emotional and behavioral change.
