I help people who feel confused, stuck and helpless, who want to change their lives, but do not know how, to get in touch with their inner Self, become agents of that change and create the lives they want.
All services I provide are designed to remove internal and external barriers and create a fulfilling and joyful life.
I believe that everything happens in people’s lives for a reason, and life events affect the whole person: body – mind – spirit. Very often body speaks about psychological problems, and physical illness affects the mood. My approach to psychotherapy is based on a combination of Eastern philosophy and Western science. Trained in both traditional scientific and alternative spiritual approaches to psychotherapy, I use a variety of ways to help my clients address life complications they experience. My training in clinical hypnosis, tarot, handwriting analysis, and energy work all help me assist my clients in understanding themselves better and accessing their internal resources to make positive changes in their lives. Having traveled the world, and having lived in different countries, I have experience working with culturally diverse clients. My professional background in linguistics allows me to see the effect of the language people use on their worldview and their psychological well-being. My style of therapy is direct, and I call things by their names. At the same time, I am gentle and understanding of internal processes, you go through.
I specialize in identity issues and life transitions as well as such clinical issues as depression, anxiety, trauma including sexual trauma and childhood trauma, sexuality issues, relationship issues, narcissism and codependency. I also work with couples on communication and intimacy issues and with families on strengthening relationships between family members.
I am Russian, and I have live in the US for several years. I moved to Oregon from Minnesota where I graduated from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota with a Master of Arts degree in Counseling and Psychological Services. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Minnesota, and I am currently registered as an intern with the Oregon State Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists pursuing licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).
