Founder and CEO of Pathways Psychology Institute, Yelena is a registered psychologist working in her two private practice clinics in Galston and Brooklyn for over 20 years. Between 2005-2008 Yelena worked at Relationships Australia as a counselor as well as a supervisor and trainer.


Yelena’s passion for working with people in ways that respect all levels of their experience; physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually as well as including their dreaming nature, has progressed over the years of counseling to also include teaching these ways of respect. Over these many years, Yelena found she had a love for teaching and inspiring practitioners with an in-depth approach to counseling, based on two decades of training and experience integrating Process Oriented Psychology into her work.


Yelena continues to expand her knowledge and skills as both a counselor and trainer by traveling Nationally and Internationally each year to conferences and workshops primarily in Trauma and Processwork Psychology.
