I work best with individuals that are motivated to achieve their goals, and have a desire to enhance their current level of functioning. 

I have been trained as a counselor and psychotherapist both in the USA and the UK, and have a tremendous amount of experience that I bring into counseling sessions. 

I also understand forensic systems very well, and can work effectively and purposefully with you to help you achieve your desired outcomes. 

I have traveled overseas extensively, and am very comfortable in working with ethnically-different clients. 
I speak fluent Russian and am conversational in other Central Asian (Uzbek and Tajik) and Middle Eastern languages.
