About

Congratulations on taking the first step towards personal growth and change through one on one counseling! Whether you are new to counseling or continuing your journey, whether you are a concerned parent or simply an adult struggling to manage the chaos of everyday life, I believe that finding the right therapist with whom you can most connect with is one of the most important parts of the therapeutic process. I commend you on being brave enough to take those steps and for valuing your emotional health enough to do the work on becoming your best self.
During my years as a therapist, I have helped teens & families of diverse financial, racial, and ethnic backgrounds work to achieve their goals. I aim to empower & promote growth with all the individuals I work by helping them to understand and cope with their emotions, thoughts, and life events, to process adverse experiences, and to feel empowered.
I believe that the therapeutic process doesn’t have to be painful but rather enjoyable. It is my goal to help individuals feel connected to a safe, unbiased, and therapeutic environment that I can provide. I welcome patients of all racial, ethnic, and gender identities, sexual orientation, religions, and abilities. Let us work together to initiate healing!

Savina Vavlas Ortiz's Groups

The Happy Mama

The Happy Mama Group is a social & support group for all mamas to be able to converse & relate what it means to be a mommy! New mamas, experienced mamas, expecting mamas, step-mamas, single mamas, working mamas: all mamas are encouraged to join to foster & develop new friendships with women who know exactly what it's like balancing life as a woman, partner, mommy, professional! It's so easy to get lost in motherhood; it's important to have a supportive tribe who knows exactly what it's like! It is my hope that through this group women can find their tribe to lean on!
