Olga Smirnova

Hello! My name is Olga. I'm 32 years old, and half a year ago, I was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome by a psychiatrist. I have always had significant difficulties with socialization and communication. I started looking for a psychologist who could help me. The doctor advised me to find a specialist who specifically works with individuals on the autism spectrum. Honestly, it turned out to be a challenging task. There are many psychologists, but there is a shortage of those working with neurodiverse people. I narrowed it down to three choices, two of them were Russian-speaking psychologists from the USA, and the third one was Olga Tkalic. After watching videos of these specialists, I chose Olga. Her extreme tactfulness, sincerity, and passion for her work won me over. During the initial consultation, I realized that Olga was the right fit for me. There was no pressure, judgment, or indifference that I had unfortunately experienced while working with previous specialists. I have been working with Olga for five months now, and I want to highlight the positive changes I've experienced: reduced anxiety, increased self-confidence, and a better understanding of myself. For example, I recently understood why I couldn't maintain friendships with my female friends. Unconsciously, without realizing it, I was imposing the role of a tutor and psychologist on them. Thanks to Olga, I am learning how communication works among neurotypical individuals. There is still a lot of work ahead... I highly recommend Olga Tkalic to everyone who is on the autism spectrum or to their close relatives seeking consultation. It is absolutely worth it.

Hello. Today, my son (17 years old) and I visited a consultation with Olga. I would like to write a few lines of gratitude for her professionalism and the comfort that she created for us during the confidential and constructive conversation. It was nice to note Olga's deep approach to work. Before the consultation, she sent a detailed questionnaire, which allowed Olga to learn more broadly and in more detail about my child and his peculiarities. This, in turn, allowed us to talk about the substance and understand whether my child has ASD or whether we need to explore and move in a different direction. To find solutions to a problem, it is important to define it accurately. We are grateful to Olga for setting the direction in which we should move.

It has been a year since I had my first therapy session with Olga. Initially, I asked her to explain to me how to find a common language with my young man, whom I suspected of having high-functioning autism. During the sessions, we talked a lot about my daily worries, fears and difficulties in and out of relationships. And so flew this year of our work with her. A lot of things in my life have changed, literally flipped 180 degrees: I changed jobs, moved to another country, changed my outlook on relationships and personal therapy. I am incredibly glad that I have traveled this path with Olga. And I want to thank her from the bottom of my heart for the professional help that I received, that kindness, involvement in my history, wisdom and support in times of crisis. I highly recommend contacting her if you are having difficulty understanding yourself / a loved one and I am sure that after sessions with Olga it is impossible to be left without food for thought. Once again, thank you very much, Olga, for your attention and time.
