Marat holds a Master’s in Counseling from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, complemented by a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. With a focus on emotional regulation, self-compassion, and values-based living, Marat specializes in utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to empower individuals facing anxiety-related disorders. His expertise extends to treating children, adolescents, parent coaching, couples, and adults experiencing anxiety, depression, life transitions, PTSD, phobias, Anger Management, and mood disorders. Marat also has a clinical specialty and passion in offering effective, action oriented couples and family counseling.

In his practice, Marat integrates exposure-based therapy and cognitive techniques to guide clients through challenges such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and related disorders. He fosters resilience and empowerment through a client-centered approach, fostering collaboration to ensure clients actively participate in their treatment journey, thereby regaining control over their lives. Marat utilizes a relatable, nonjudgmental approach infused with humor to engage and support them through their unique challenges and experiences.

Every aspect of my experience so far with LOA has been very positive. From the ease with which I was able to request and secure my first appointment, to the constructive and welcoming tone of my intake session with Marat, up to this point, all my interactions with LOA staff and its patient portal have been great.
