About

Being a therapist not only involves the training we are provided nor the previous clients with whom we have worked with. In my opinion, it involves the humility to allow one's client to feel safe enough to share the most vulnerable parts of their experiences in order for both of us to feel connected and moving in the same direction. My style of treatment follows my beliefs above. While we take our time bonding, I will be working to put the pieces together that you may be unable to see. Once we have a pattern established, we will go at your speed, perhaps with a light nudge from me, in order to discover the origins of your issues.
I have many specialties that you can read about on my site at ilanawasserman.com. I can help you reach through the pain of trauma and PTSD as well as understand and plan for living with chronic or catastrophic illness. I am a Queer, Kink, Poly friendly therapist of color who truly understands the limitations and joys our world can bring.
In times like this, we have so many things that stress us, provoking previous issues unattended to. This is truly a time of unrest & uncertainty. I currently work with clients who are attempting to work in therapy under this level of stress. I'll take you through this process with care & commitment from whatever walk of life we come from together& not apart.
