Moscow, 83843 United States
Years in Practice :
Description of Practice :
I provide psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and families. Also, I am interested in providing consultation to organizations. I obtained the doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology in 2009; however, I have been practicing counseling and consultation with a master degree since 2000.
My approach is unique, because I am very interested in integrating both Eastern and Western perspective of body/mind; also, I am interested in integrating individual as well as systemic approaches. Our body/mind is a system, and all of us lives in systems, from family, workplace, to community and culture.
My doctoral training grounded me with research-based attachment theory, a theory that explains our parent-child interaction as well as romantic relationships. Before, 7 years of psychodrama and sociodrama training helped me to see how each of us consciously or unconsciously repeats past family history. Recently, 4 years of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy training further strengthened my capacity in helping people to recovery from psychological trauma, abuse, and attachment injuries.
