I studied psychology in the National Research Lobachevsky State University of Nizhni Novgorod, where I have acquired diploma in psychology. I continued my psychology education in Neapolis University Cyprus (NUP), where I was awarded B.A. in Psychology with excellence. I earned my Masters degree in clinical psychology at the European University Cyprus (EUC).

Throughout my training, I specialized in evaluating and treating adults with mental illness including, but not limited to, major depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol dependency, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. I have experience working in hospital, community mental health, schools, and private practice settings.

Having studied in different educational systems and being exposed to different cultures has given me an opportunity to enrich and expand my experience and knowledge of psychology. I have an eclectic style because I believe that each person is unique and requires individualized approach which takes into consideration his/her experience, cultural background, personal values, character, current situation and environment.
