My goal is to bring compassion, genuineness, and unconditional positive regard to the therapeutic space. The most important element of counseling for me is to establish a warm and trusting therapeutic relationship with my clients. I have a client-centered, strength-focused, and results-oriented approach to providing counseling. I implement eclectic therapeutic methods utilizing cognitive-behavioral techniques, mindfulness, and psychodynamic therapy.

I enjoy spending time with family, baking, nature walks, and watching home improvement shows.
I love taking daily walks outside with my son.
The American Red Cross and UNICEF are my favorite organizations due to all the emergency support that they provide to children and families. As an immigrant from Ukraine, I believe these organizations are helping so many who have been traumatized by the current war in Ukraine.
I love to play and laugh with my toddler son. His positive energy is contagious!
