I was born in Kalmykia, Russia in 1987. I graduated from the Pirogov Medical University in Moscow in 2010 and subsequently worked as a laboratory scientist in oncological diagnostics. Years of therapy sparked my interest in psychology.
I studied at the Moscow Institute of Gestalt and Psychodrama and qualified as a Gestalt therapist in 2017. Since 2016 I have been working with clients from various backgrounds and ages, and supported them on a wide range of topics.
My previous experience of working in science and medicine helps me to understand the features and mechanisms of many psychological issues. Combined with my natural empathy this enables me to provide effective help to my clients.
Outside of counselling I'm active in photography and art. I studied at the "DocDocDoc" School of Modern Photography in Saint Petersburg, and my photography work is inspired by reflections on personal, family, and collective experience, and the history of the Kalmyk ethnic group. Apart from that I'm interested in philosophy and spiritual practises such as meditation.
