I was born and raised in Kemerovo, Russia where I received my medical degree at Kemerovo State Medical Academy. I completed the General Psychiatry residency program and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellowship program at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. I am board certified in both, general psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry. Currently I am a clinical instructor of Psychiatry at CWRU. I speak fluent Russian.

In my private practice, I provide a comprehensive, culturally-sensitive initial psychiatric assessment to children adopted from different countries of former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. I also offer ongoing individual and family therapy that includes pharmacological management.

I recognize behavioral, emotional and developmental difficulties that occur in children adopted from orphanages. I focus on an individually-based family-oriented approach that benefits the needs of the children and parents together.

I am also an active member of Russian American Medical Association. As a volunteer, I went on a humanitarian mission trip to my hometown Kemerovo, Russia in July-August 2008. I worked as a team member that provided pediatric cardiac surgery to children in Siberia including children from different orphanages. I developed a psychological and social support program that incorporated psychosomatic help to children and their families before and after cardiac surgery.
