My Philosophy of Care

When working with clients, I come from a gentle, compassionate place to invite you into self-exploration, self-reflection and self-kindness. My belief is the body holds a lot of answers to the questions we are asking, which is why I encourage clients into slowing down and listening for answers. While the specifics are tailored to each individual, I frequently pull from Interpersonal Neurobiology, Polyvagal Theory, Systems Theory and Attachment Theory. I believe systems have a tremendous impact on our individual and collective functioning, and I believe a lot of our suffering has to do with systems of oppression and the demands they place on us. In our sessions, we will work on connecting with your emotions and feelings with the goal of increasing self-awareness, self-kindness and your ability to tolerate distressing emotions and states. We will pay close attention to what comes up, what is hard to talk about, what is angering, what is confusing. This can help us pinpoint and explore the ways you experience relationships and how others see you in return.

About Me & My Practice

I am Ukrainian, non-binary, neurodivergent and queer-identified practitioner. I hold a lot of white, straight-passing, able-bodied, small fat privilege and work to be mindful of it in my therapeutic practice, while also allowing my lived experience to be a bridge of connection with folks I work with. Social justice is very important to me and my work, and as I continue my own learning, I encourage my clients to fully bring their many intersections of identity to therapy, inviting race, culture, sexual orientation, gender, neurotype, ability and body size to be named and explored. In my spare time, I can be found reading a good fantasy book, playing a video game, or taking care of my many plants. I am also a photographer, an anime lover and an avid traveler.

Accessibility Considerations

All of my appointments are held via telehealth via a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform, with limitations being a need to have computer access and a stable internet connection. As I do not bill insurance, your chosen name is the one that is kept in our records and includes your pronouns. For folks needing closed captions, there is an option to meet via Google Meet to generate those in session. I currently don't have available accessibility options for clients that use ASL or other languages.
