My Approach to Helping

Hi! My name is Larisa, and I'm here to help you become more effective communicators.

Navigating relationships can be tricky, to say the least. I believe the most important element of any relationship is communication. Breakdowns in communication are common and may go undetected for months, or even years. Becoming aware of how we communicate and adjusting appropriately can make all the difference in our interactions moving forward. My goal is to help you and your partner become effective communicators. My therapeutic style is down to Earth and compassionately curious.

I primarily use Imago Relationship Therapy to help repair relational ruptures, rebuild trust, and develop effective ways of communicating that soon become second nature. I also incorporate elements of Gottman Therapy, Mindfulness, Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Solution-Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

More Info About My Practice

I utilize multiple therapeutic approaches to address your specific needs. Each client is unique and will respond differently to therapeutic interventions, which is why I take the time to get to know you before determining which approach(es) will work best in our journey together. If at any time you feel like something isn’t working, I welcome a discussion to see how we can pivot.

At this time, I only offer sessions via telehealth using a HIPAA-compliant platform.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have training in multiple couple therapy modalities and am currently working on obtaining Gottman Level 1 certification. I also have training in attachment theory and disruptions. I approach my work with a relational, attachment-based lens to help clients understand what they bring to relationships and how to make appropriate changes and repairs.
