I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and a Board Certified expert in traumatic stress treatment.
I was born in Armenia where I received my BS in Engineering. I received my MA and Ph.D. in Psychology from the Moscow State University, the most prestigious university of the former Soviet Union.

After the 1988 Armenian earthquake, I organized the Children's Psychotherapy Center for treating emotional and behavioral consequences of the psychological trauma in young children.

After arriving to the United States in 1992, I continued with my post-doctoral clinical training at Bradley Hospital, RI, and as a Visiting Professor at Brown University (1992-2004) studied Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in children and adolescents. I am an author of many articles and book chapters, and presented the results of my research and practice on major international conferences and workshops. After the terrorist attack in New York on 9/11, I worked at the Family Assistance Center for two weeks sharing my experience of treating traumatized children. From 1992 to 2004, I worked as a Child Clinical Psychologist at the Bradley Hospital evaluating and treating children and adolescents.

Since 2004, I am in the private practice in Providence, RI. I have an extensive clinical experience of treating hundreds of children, focusing particularly on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Oppositional-Defiant Disorder, Adjustment Disorders, and Reactive Attachment Disorder, specializing in treatment of internationally adopted children.

I am fluent in Russian and Armenian and have a first-hand experience with cross-cultural differences between American parents and their children adopted internationally.
