Clinical Specialties: I have 20 years experience helping people who are going through a difficult time in their life and want to find new ways to cope and gain greater understanding of themselves and the world around them. I work with such issues as depression, anxiety, interpersonal difficulties, cultural adjustment, etc. My approach is eclectic including cognitive therapy (CBT), mindfulness, psychodynamics, conflict management, and art therapy. My goal is to facilitate personal growth with competence and compassion
Cross-Cultural Experience: My parents and family were refugees to the USA. I grew up in an immigrant area of Detroit, Michigan, and later moved to an entirely new culture in French speaking Montreal, Canada. These life experiences have given me an understanding of the difficulties of adjusting to a new culture. As well I have a degree from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in political science. I have used this knowledge in my work at multicultural centers in Montreal and in my current counseling service. I offer counseling to people traveling or living overseas through Skype or phone.

Cross-Cultural Experience: As a teenager, 16, I had to adapt to a whole new culture and language as my family traded world’s biggest country, Russia, for the second world’s largest country, Canada. Living in Vancouver, Canada, one of the most multicultural places on earth, I had the honor to be friends, to work with and to have clients from so many different parts of the globe. And now, I continue my life journey as an expat living in Manila, Philippines, a recent move and a part of the mobile lifestyle/adventure that I am bringing to my life.
