Methodologies used my practice
As a Practicing Psychologist I continue to learn and develop my practice. New methodologies and practices allow me to help my clients/patients find a multidimensional solution to their issues. We are able to select an approach that will be most effective in a particular case. 
My first book was published in august of 2021. The book “I want to be a Mom, and a Dad too” - it is for individuals who are considering parenthood. I tried to incorporate all of the challenges and nuances that  one might encounter on the way to becoming a parent. We start with a question - “Do I want to be a parent? What should I expect on a way”. The book is filled with practical exercises that you could do right inside the book and online.

Services Offered
Individual Psychological Consultations
Individual work is geared toward a wide spectrum of objectives and issues. Clients age varies from 12+. In order to determine if this kind of work is for you, please contact me stating the nature of your question. In private practice I use various methodologies and approaches, but the basis for all my work is going to be CBT (cognitive-behavioral approach) and psychological typology methodology Psy-to-nomics.
Systemic Family Therapy
In Systemic Family Therapy - I work with families. Family configuration can vary frorm couples counseling, families with children, and families with parents that are also invited into therapy if needed.
Group Therapy / Training
Along with colleagues I am running groups, these groups can focus on psychological trainings, as well as be focused more on therapy. Group participation is available in both face-to-face and online formats.

Some of the groups that are currently available focus on the following questions:
- Family group therapy and training that are reproductively challenged (IVF focused therapy) - partner REMEDI Reproductive Institute
- Interactive Family game - Get to know your family better
- Interactive game for Couples - Intimacy
- Series of webinars and seminars on the topics of sex and sexuality
among others
Coaching services are different from psychological consultation. It is based mostly on usage of practical/applied instruments and methodologies for the solution of very particular objectives that we set together with the clients. In most cases it starts with clients' psychological portrait and understanding of "Why do I want the things that I want" and "Why I do what I do", the nature of your desires and behaviors.
Corporate Consulting
Corporate clients come for different reasons, our work primarily focuses on employees/personnel, employee selection, reorganization, change management, conflictology, creation of innovative practices within a given organization, communication processes and trainings, corporate educational programs (individual lectures and programs that become part of the corporate university with personalized tracks for employee skill development)
Scientific Work
In line of our scientific work we are constantly on the lookout for productive partnerships with those interested. The areas of interest and expertise are: psychology, psychotherapy, psycholinguistics, psychogenetics and some others.

Also, in order to promote our scientific work we are open to collaborate with Media, Lecture organization and educational organizations around the globe.
