Starting therapy takes courage. It can feel scary, confusing, and messy at times. I am here to make it lighter. To help you find hope and energy to keep going. To hold your pain, to help you find what works in your unique situation, and to empower you in being successful with your goals. I practice in a client-centered approach, and can support you with more targeted DBT and ACT interventions to address anxiety or replenish your coping repertoire. I work with older teens and adult clients.
While I work with a broad variety of personal issues, I specialize in health psychology and adjustment issues. I love supporting people through their journeys navigating a range of issues from identity and relationship questions to dealing with health concerns, including sexual health, postpartum care, chronic diseases, pain, and eating disorders. I'm fluent in Russian and enjoy working with people of various cultural backgrounds. I work closely with immigrant communities and provide sliding scale and pro-bono services to refugees.
Do you need support, but can’t make it to an in-person appointment? Are you a busy stay-at-home or working parent, and don’t have the time to drive across town for an appointment?
Do you live in a more rural area, or maybe you prefer to just do things Virtually?
If so, we can help you through virtual therapy / telehealth.
Telehealth allows us to provide counseling and therapy to our clients via HIPPAA compliant live video conferencing. This can be done anywhere you have a computer or smartphone. Our telehealth solution allows you to schedule an appointment directly online and have the entire therapy session take place digitally. While you don’t need a video camera, we do recommend you use one.
Is teletherapy effective?
The short answer is, yes. There is a growing body of research around telehealth that shows a number of benefits from remote counseling. For many, having access to mental healthcare from the privacy of their own home or office, and on their own time, has been essential in maintaining their overall wellbeing.
