About My Clients
I work to support women who are navigating life transitions and are discovering their identity and belonging in a new city, relationships, career, or are transitioning into motherhood. I work with women who experience anxiety and depression, and women who feel disconnected from their bodies, struggle with disordered eating, or are experiencing negative body image. Together, we can understand and reduce maladaptive behaviors and the thought and relationship patterns that interfere with your life.
My Background and Approach
I have worked with adults and adolescents in residential treatment, partial hospitalization programs, and intensive outpatient programs treating eating disorders. In my work, I focused on anxiety, depression, eating disorders, disordered eating behaviors and patterns, and negative body image. I take an integrative therapeutic approach, tailoring our work to what is right for you. While my education was based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I have a strength-based approach, using aspects of narrative therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and holistic therapy. I am also completing additional training in perinatal mental health through Postpartum Support International. I was born in Russia and grew up near Seattle. I completed my bachelor's degree at UW. Afterwards, I moved to San Francisco where I earned my Master's in Counseling Psychology, with a dual focus in Marriage and Family Therapy and Professional Clinical Counseling from the University of San Francisco.
