About

Hello! My name is Ryna! I am a mental health therapist. I have experience treating clients with depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress, and bipolar disorder- just to name a few! I use an integrative approach, blending techniques from a cognitive behavioral, rational emotive and humanistic existential perspective. I am very passionate about helping my clients to feel better so they can live their best life on their own terms.
I offer my clients a genuine, empathic, and solution-focused approach. My goal is to help clients to learn how to cope with and manager their difficulties so they can feel confident in making the best choices for themselves and harness their full potential.
Therapy is a judgement free zone and it is your space to discuss what's important to you in your life. If you feel like you would like someone to talk to, I'm all ears! To book an appointment today, click this link or copy and paste it into your browser: lestersmhc.clientsecure.me
