This Service provides:

  1. Counseling for American men with their concerns about developing relationships with women from the former Soviet Republics.

    Searching for a proper mate can be a challenge in any society. When you combine two different cultures this task can be even more challenging. For this reason it is important to build a strong foundation, and understanding in the early stages of the relationship. You may have experienced miss-understanding due to differences in language and culture. I can help both of you communicate more effectively!

    It is not necessary that you live in Florida to benefit from my services. In fact, it is not even necessary that you both need to be in the USA. I provide telephone based counseling, translation /Russian-English/,and conferencing services for clients in the USA and overseas. Besides of that I can provide an answer for your questions via E-mail as well.

    1. Translating and interpreting letters or any other written documentation.

      I can give you an accurate translation from the perspective of the Russian women. From her letters I would be able to get a better understanding about her personality and expectations. I would also be able to reply to both of you with some conclusions and suggestions

    2. If you going to visit your Lady I can help to assist you with a trip abroad to accomplish all of your goals on the personal level. I would be able to provide you with practical solutions, place more emphasis on your cross-cultural awareness, and communication skills.

  2. Premarital/Marriage counseling and therapy for Russian-American couples with adaptation problems, existential frustrations, and cross-cultural issues.

    It is not surprise to anyone that a new marriage contains stress. The added pressure of different, often misunderstood cultures can occasionally be very difficult to endure. But, even before the marriage vows are spoken, there are unique circumstances that could have happened in a Russian-American relationships. Not the least of which is the 90-day K1 Fiancee Visa period. This is when the engaged couple is intensely involved in the making decision process, while she is visiting America.

    I have observed that there is another equally stressful period experienced during the six months, sometimes a year following the marriage date. This a time when the couple has to adapt to a new life together. It might be filled with situations that neither partner would have anticipated.

    Emotional support is very important in coping with stress issues during the adaptation period of your new cross-cultural family. These problems could affect you emotionally, physically, and may lead to marital problems. I can provide symptom relief to help you and your family members find a way of coping with the changes that you are facing. When you address all of these factors you will have the best chance of adjusting to your new life situation, feel more satisfied and happy. I would like to encourage you and your family members to have a good long-term relationship with your psychologist.

  3. Counseling for Russian women and their children to feel free to communicate with a counselor in their native language.

    Russian Ladies, no matter how fluent in English or familiar with a new culture, are generally reluctant to the premise of outside counseling. In their minds, this idea of seeing a counselor is often viewed as a sign of a weakness. Russian women have a strong desire to retain family business within the boundaries of marriage. While this is a respectful trait, sometimes it is not a helpful one. Nevertheless, those Ladies who worked with me have told me that they started to understand their husbands much better. It was easier for them to express their feelings in their native language to someone familiar with their culture. Likewise, their husbands were able to approach the relationship and attendant issues with a new clarity and understanding.
