Julia was born and raised in the Far East of Russia, where she got her first Master Degree in Engineering. During her school years she became interested in Natural Medicine due to her own health issues. As she was doing her research in this field, she had become fascinated with the connection between the mind and the body. After moving to the USA in 2005, she was very excited to find Bastyr University as it was offering a Masters in Nutrition and Health Psychology program which emphasized the very topic of her interest. She graduated from Bastyr in 2015 with both a Masters in Nutrition and Psychology. However this program has become just a foundation for further studies and deeper research. While at Bastyr, she joined Pacific Yoga Teacher training where she got her certificate in Yoga teaching, and is now finishing up her studying at the American Institute for Vedic Studies with the focus on Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology. She continuously takes classes in Theology, Vedic Philosophy, Slavic Healing traditions, Psychosomatics and Shamanism from a variety of schools.
Julia sees clients with variety of issues – mental, physical or both. She also works with families and children of all ages. Her approach is different in each case and combines the knowledge of evidence based nutrition and psychology with the more ancient (and more in-depth!) approach that emphasizes not only the body but sees a person as a Union of Body, Soul and Spirit.
