Born and raised in Russia, I received my medical degree in Pediatrics at the Moscow Medical School. I have dual training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (All-Union Center for Child Psychiatry, Moscow, 1991 and Children's Hospital, Boston, 2001.) During 1991-1993 I worked in Russian orphanages as part of ongoing studies of high-risk infants and assisted American families visiting Russian orphanages.

Currently I continue to provide services to American families adopting from Russia. I assist with translating and interpreting medical records and videotapes brought from Russia. I also provide a comprehensive initial evaluation of the child and family and offer ongoing treatment, including psychopharmacology.

I understand challenges and opportunities that impact the development of babies raised in orphanages and the forces that may affect family dynamics in the context of international adoption. My approach is outcome-oriented with measurable goals carefully chosen on an individual basis. My values emphasize the family focus with a strong commitment to child-parent advocacy. My strength and sustainability come from building relationships rather than simply facilitating recommendations. I trust in each family's strength and unlimited possibilities.

In addition to my private practice, I am an attending physician at the Boston Center of Westwood Pembroke Health System's Eating Disorder Partial Hospitalization Program and I am also the Medical Director of the Cambridge Youth Guidance Center, which is affiliated with Cambridge Hospital. I am Board-Certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
