About Me

Hello, my name is Olga. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of New York, with Master’s degrees in General and Clinical Psychology and Certificate in Applied Positive Psychology. I have been working with families and teens for nine years now. In my practice, I blend several therapeutic approaches, including insight oriented and positive psychology. Through this combination I help clients on their journey of self-discovery and personal growth. During the adolescent period humans go through very specific challenges, which require them to find and define their identities, learn how to navigate increasingly complex relationships, and consider more sophisticated challenges of the adult world. Therefore, learning skills that will help them in this transition will be essential to their future success as adults. The focus of my practice is to support individuals of different ages in helping them to create an authentic life through discovering and nurturing their strengths, understanding their emotional responses and thought processes, as well as helping them nurture their relationships with others. I create a safe, nonjudgmental, and supportive environment for my clients, accept them as they are and encourage their uniqueness to blossom. I believe that this approach can benefit teens and aid them on their journey to adulthood.

Having a conversation with Olga is like venting to an expert friend. She listens to everything I say and is very encouraging. If she doesn't hear from me after a few days even if I was fine in my last message, I like that she checks in to make sure everything is alright.

We have interacted some online, and only once via video conference thus far, but so far, Olga has been good to work with. She helped get us talking, and we are making progress.

Olga is extremely patient and kind when working with my wife and I. Olga is fair and we feel that she wants the both of us to grow and get back what we've lost over the years. We always look forward to our sessions with Olga!
