Clinical, Academic and Research Experience

Clinical experience. Mental hospital
As a clinical psychologist at the Crisis department of the Pavlov Psychiatric Hospital in St. Petersburg (Russia), I worked with severely mentally disturbed patients with depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, bipolar and borderline disorders, OCD, psychosomatic disorders as well as with individuals who have gone through traumatic loss, suicidal attempt or sexual abuse. I completed neuropsychological assessment for various neuropsychiatric, neurological and medical disorders, provided counselling and psycho-educational trainings for patients and their relatives, helping them to better their awareness about severe mental diseases and to establish efficient communication pathways.
Academic experience. Medical University
As Assistant Professor, I lectured in the Department of Psychiatry and Narcology at the First Pavlov State Medical University, St. Petersburg (Russia). I delivered scientific lectures, seminars and trainings to medical students in general and medical psychology, and also presented talks and abstracts for scientific conferences.
Research experience
For several years I worked in the international clinical research companies. I completed dissertation research focused on cognitive and affective disorders in cancer patients. My doctoral research was supported by 13 articles published in peer-reviewed journals. See the section "Resources" on this website to access the publications. In my private practice I am grounded on the principles of evidence-based medicine. It means that I read on a daily basis the results of new research completed, participate in the scientific seminars, conferences, discussing clinical outcomes of treatment with senior colleagues.
