Elena is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy at Pepperdine University. She also holds a Master of Science in Psychology from the University of Geneva, Switzerland, and completed additional studies at the University of California, Los Angeles, and Berkeley. Her previous work experiences in the non-profit sector and clinical research reinforced her interpersonal skills.
Empathic, compassionate, and patient, Elena has a multidisciplinary breadth of knowledge and a holistic view of human nature. Along these lines, she aspires to support people by fostering the development of their personal but also collective, and cultural identities. Elena’s approach is inherently systemic, striving to build, harmonize, and strengthen relationships, yet integrative of other theoretical and evidence-based influences. Committed to offering culturally sensitive therapy focused on the client’s needs, she can also provide treatment in French and Russian.
