Hello & welcome! I am Ekaterina Mariposa, a bilingual counselor trained in Counseling and Psychotherapy, a birth doula, a childbirth educator, a pelvic floor health instructor and group facilitator.  I work with the English speaking expat community in Moscow & Tbilisi.

Learn more about my integral support service for expats in Moscow .

As a Counsellor I work with trauma, loss, relationship issues, family history, cultural adaptation, abuse, anxiety, co-dependency, personal growth, body image. I am trained in Somatic (Body-Oriented) Psychology, which means that I pay close attention to the processes that happen in the body and among other techniques use movement and dance, Mindfulness and breathing.


As a Birth Doula and Childbirth Educator I support women and their partners during pregnancy, childbirth and post-partum, in parenting difficulties and preparation for parenthood. My goal as a birth worker is to help women regain what's rightfully theirs - their Birth right; to empower women and their partners on their way to a thriving parenthood.


As a certified Vagiton pelvic floor specialist I help women restore their health by teaching them to work with their pelvic floor.

A native Russian, I resided in several countries including the U.S. and Canada. This experience included pregnancy and giving birth and adjusting to a life in a foreign country, employment, a mulicultural marriage, studying and going through personal therapy in English.
