Earning a Bachelor's degree in Sociology from Hunter College, Ester spent over ten years in the field of crisis counseling, treating Holocaust Survivor's trauma, Sexual Assault, and Incest that was experienced by various populations of people, including adolescents and adults. At the start of the pandemic, Ester felt it was finally time to go back and obtain her master's degree from National University, graduating in 2023. She is also fluent in English and Russian.

Esters works with individuals, couples, and families to address various areas of concern, including trauma, abuse, and sexual concerns, including; porn addiction, sexual violence, and sexual dysregulation. Ester is LGBTQI inclusive and also provides therapy for communication barriers, family conflict management, social skills, navigating big life changes such as divorce, joining of two families with multiple children, stillborn loss, new parent therapy, feelings of isolation, strained relationships, and self-esteem concerns.

One of Esters's favorite quotes in relation to life and therapy is, "Where you stand determines what you see and what you do not see; it also determines the angle you see it from; a change in where you stand changes everything," Steve de Shazer.

Why Healthcare

Ester is passionate about providing mental healthcare because she has seen how individuals suffer from various things. Getting that assistance to process helps the person let go of so much stress and anxiety. Being there to help unburden the client and allow for some healthy processing of behaviors that no longer work for the client is the most rewarding and humbling career.
