Hello there! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate working with individuals, relationships/couples, and families. As a systemically trained therapist, I take a holistic approach when working with my clients. I work with adolescents and adults, and I specifically focus on addressing concerns of individuals in the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as those in the kink/BDSM community and consensual non-monogamy.
I am trained in addressing individual and relational concerns including (but not limited to) areas of substance abuse, body image and eating disorders, technology use/concerns, trauma, sexual and/or gender identity, diversity/minority issues, acculturation/assimilation concerns, depression/anxiety, stress, relationship concerns and pre-marital counseling, infidelity, grief & loss, and family communication/conflict.
I am currently finishing my doctorate degree in Couples, Marriage, and Family Therapy at Texas Tech University, and I have published several articles and presented workshops around issues of disordered eating, substance abuse, technology use, and bisexuality/sexual identity.
I am fluent in English and Russian.
I also provide online/teletherapy to clients residing anywhere in Texas.
