Therapy helps people learn about themselves and their communication patterns.

This new knowledge about yourself and your partner will help break ineffective communication and behavior patterns, enabling you to achieve your goals of a better relationship with your partner.

We will work together to figure out what are the obstacles and what to do about them.

My role as therapist and relationship coach is to help you to make the best response to your partner inquires while maintaining your core values.

Your task is to formulate your clear goals in therapy.

I will assist you with your goals.

I will help you reach your goals and share with you tools to achieve your objectives.

Your trade-offs will be your time, your comfort, and the risks involved in doing things differently.

As rewards,

You will create more benefits.
You will be a better person.
You will learn how to respond instead of reacting.
You will have a better relationship.
To make desirable changes to happen, you need insight and action.

I invite you to start to identify ways you and your partner/spouse can get unstuck from old,

ineffective communication patterns and develop a win-win situation for a better life and a better

relationship. There are tradeoffs and challenges for everyone seeking to achieve such objectives.

More Info About My Practice

I personally see therapy is an investment in yourself, intended to alleviate the inner struggles that keep you feeling stuck.

I hold a Master's in Counseling Psychology from the Argosy University. In addition, I have MD with 13 years practicing experience as a pediatrician in the former Soviet Union.

I have navigated many life transitions myself and overcome many losses in my life, including immigration, career changes, and other challenging situations.

My practice is informed by advanced training with The Couples Therapy Institute, Goffman Couples therapy training, Divorce Mediation training, EMDR training, Gambling Treatment training and many others. I am always in search of mindfulness, personal growth, self-compassion, confidence, and neuroscience.

I am deeply interested in different cultures, and identity issues for immigrants, and I cultivate a supportive atmosphere that welcomes and normalizes diversity of all kinds.
