Yelena obtained her undergraduate degree in Psychology in Moscow, Russia. She is bilingual, speaking English and Russian. She worked as a child psychologist in Moscow. She was able to continue her psychology career in New York City upon obtaining her Masters Degree from Rutgers University, NJ.

Yelena works with children, adults, couples and families. This is what she would like to say to our website visitors: “Life can be stressful at times. This stress can leave you feeling anxious, depressed and frustrated. Those feelings often get intensified at times of transitions, after an unexpected loss, when dealing with relationship challenges or any other unexpected stressor. Therapy offers a helpful and safe place to regain a sense of control. No two people are alike and everyone comes to therapy for different reasons. We will work together to identify your individual needs and come up with a collaborative plan that will help you reach your greatest potential. I work with my clients to explore their context and history, to make sense of their experiences, to imagine and plan a positive way forward.”


Due to COVID-19 public emergency, we are currently offering online counseling and teletherapy.
