Life is Now Session. Are You Present?
I also have a particular interest in multicultural psychology, arising from my immigration experience from Ukraine. I believe cultural issues, such as immigration, acculturation, bilingualism, cultural identity, and cultural stigma, significantly affect not only our state of mind but also our views of mental health and access to services. Through witnessing a wide range of systemic issues in a client base – race, ethnicity, class, and gender – I strive to incorporate an analysis of oppression into my healing practice and worldview. I wholeheartedly commit to my work through advocacy, teamwork, and volunteering.
My compassionate approach to conducting therapy is intended to help you develop deeper self-awareness. Cultivating self-awareness is not something to be categorized and explained, but rather to be experienced and embraced to whatever capacity you have today. I incorporate somatic movement practices, yoga, and meditation as additional therapeutic offerings.
I believe that through reciprocated and mutual attention, security, time, and full mirroring of ourselves in the therapeutic relationship, we can heal ourselves. Beginning therapy can feel daunting – it requires embracing the uncertainty and authenticity that comes with time. I will be honored to support you in making your first step toward multiple possibilities.
