I am a mother of two, a wife, a working professional and an animal lover. When I was 2 years old, my entire family immigrated to New York City from the former Soviet Union. I believe that my life story has given me access to a wider range of human experience and informs a lot of my practice. I have a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Adelphi University-Derner School of Advanced Psychological Studies and an undergraduate degree in psychology from New York University. I completed my internship at the VA Harbor Healthcare System in Manhattan and I stayed there for 4 years on staff working with veterans before venturing into private practice. If you have any questions before scheduling an appointment, please reach out to me by e-mail with your inquiry.
