I have been working as a psychotherapist in my homeland Russia since 2009 with adults until my family landed in Canada in December 2017. My basic education in nursing and an undergraduate degree in psychology were also received in Russia.

I started my career as a nurse and then decided to become a psychotherapist while I was recovering from my personal experience with severe depression.   ‚Äč
