Experience

I have worked with people my whole professional life- as a teacher, speech therapist, service coordinator, supervisor for social work services, and as an administrator. I strive to help people find their own path and motivation. I have developed the skill of searching for and finding various kinds of support and services and connecting people to them. I believe that our families and our childhood experiences shape us, however, we never stop growing and learning.That is why my approach is solution-oriented and focused on the present.

I graduated from Hertzen Pedagogical Institute in St. Petersburg in Russia and then from Hunter College Graduate School of Social Work in New York.
I currently work in a large mental health organization in New York City. During my long career in the social work professional area, I have accumulated a unique and wide-spread professional network that I will happily utilize at your service.
