Hello and welcome to my little corner at Spectrum Counseling. I was born in Ukraine. By the age of 12, I had lived on several continents before my final journey to the United States many years ago. I have an extensive background in mental health, and am currently a Marriage and Family Therapy Student. For the past 15 years, I have worked at teaching hospitals, private clinics, residential facilities, and non-profit organizations specializing in mental health education, resources and community run programs.

My experience includes:

  • Therapeutic work with adults, teens, and families
  • Counseling families in crisis
  • Working with individuals and families who were living with HIV, and connecting them to community resources
  • Working with people living with disabilities
  • Career counseling and coaching
  • Working with children, teens, adults, and families with addiction to alcohol and drugs
  • Working with multicultural and multigenerational families
  • Organizing and facilitating group therapy sessions

 

My approach is nurturing and respectful. I believe in mindful and solution-oriented work that helps build a strong inner foundation and allows the therapeutic process growth to see all the many possibilities out there for you. I often see challenges as experiences that turn into growth opportunities. Let us grow together.
