Russian Speaking Therapist in NYC

Although I came to United States a long time ago and have lived in New York City most of my life, I am a Russian speaking therapist and have understanding of, connection and deep ties to Russian community, culture and it's sensibilities.

As a Russian therapist, my work with Russian speaking or bilingual patients is rooted in understanding of the immigrant experiences, as well as adjustments to life in a different country. Many of my patients came to America as children or were even born in the United States to parents from different parts of former Soviet Union. They prefer to see a Russian speaking therapist because they may still feel like they are partially bicultural. Many others immigrated to United States as formed adults and it is for many reasons they prefer to have therapy with a therapist who speaks their language and understands their culture and experience.

I know and understand bicultural experience and welcome Russian speaking as well as people from other countries who are experiencing adjustment difficulties or any other problems to consider me a resource to help through whatever transition they are experiencing.

Counseling & Therapy with Russian Speaking Clients in New York City


I provide counseling and therapy in Russian for any psychological, personal, relationship or work related issues. My training and experience as a therapist for over 20 years and my understanding and connection to Russian culture and experience are of great benefit to Russian speaking clients or those who were raised in families from former Soviet Union.
