I specialize in working with people who have experienced trauma. Trauma can leave a person feeling numb, disconnected as if your life has been turned upside down. I would like to assist you with your healing journey. My focus is a Holistic approach to helping people recover and heal after a traumatic event and learn new ways of coping and managing their traumatic responses. When someone does not heal from a traumatic event, they can develop Post Traumatic Stress disorder (PTSD) depression, and/or anxiety.

Are you navigating life changes and experiencing some stress regarding these changes? Would you like to lessen the amount of anxiety you are experiencing surrounding the uncertainty of change? This discomfort is likely affecting other parts of your lives such as important relationships, job performance, self-esteem, and the ability to enjoy activities that were once meaningful. All of these things can lead to depression as well as generalized anxiety. We will be able to address these issues if they arise but my goal is to assist them in finding tools that can help them deal with the current changes and change to come.

Katya worked with individuals with myriad mental health symptoms. She values therapy for people because it’s an experience where individuals can open up and discover something new about themselves and because it helps people show how resilient they are, how coping skills can be helpful, and how a different mindset can really assist with challenges someone is experiencing. She has been working in the field for 7 years.

We Are Here to Help You Solve Problems. Let's face it sometimes everyone needs a little help when things get rough. But not everyone has time to commit to a rigid, long-term therapeutic regimen - some people need to seek help on their own terms. I have created a therapeutic environment that is conversational, flexible, and extremely transparent. I specialize in utilizing personal therapy as a medium for conflict resolution. Put simply, we use time and conversation to help you solve your problems, no matter what they are - depression, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, or anything else.

While life usually has its ups and downs, and everyone encounters difficult days, sometimes things become overwhelming and therefore it makes sense to seek counseling. In fact, often it may be helpful to run a distressing situation past a professional like me, not only to allow the opportunity for an evaluation, but also to hear oneself in the presence of an outside, objective person. I have been successful with young adults, midlife and senior people. The kinds of issues may range but not be restricted to relationship concerns, employment dilemmas, parenting problems and grief associated with loss.

Dishes have piled up, relationships are suffering, and avoidance shows up even when it comes to things you enjoy. Sometimes situations change and pose new challenges; at other times situations remain the same and lead to feeling stagnant and stuck. Whatever your unique case might be, today can be the beginning of feeling more effective in your life. It is courageous to acknowledge that you might benefit from learning new tools and insights.

In individual therapy, I emphasize a short-term, time-sensitive approach that is problem focused. During troublesome periods in our lives, powerful ideas about ourselves or about the world can become activated that result in our feeling anxious, sad or depressed. Relief comes from replacing these notions with a more realistic perception of our circumstances and ourselves. A principal goal of this approach is assist clients to learn how to become their own therapist, thereby preventing relapse and decreasing dependence on therapy or when appropriate medications.

What type of Chicago mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Chicago?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
