I have been working as a psychotherapist in my homeland Russia since 2009. After immigrating to Canada in 2017, I’ve completed a bridging program with the Gestalt Institute of Toronto and became a Registered Psychotherapist.


My background includes long-term training in Gestalt-therapy and Somatic psychotherapy Hakomi, extensive training and supervision in Compassion-focused therapy (CFT) and specific trauma treatment training.
