My Approach to Helping
I'm Tatiana, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I graduated from Long Island University with a Master’s Degree in Counseling. I help BIPOC millennials bounce back from challenging circumstances. I know where you and we can make things better, together. Let me help you figure out what to do when life doesn't go as expected.
My approach encompasses a variety of research-based methods. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (how our thoughts, feelings, behaviors affect each other), Systems Therapy (the different roles you play in life), and Motivational Interviewing (what motivates you to make changes). In my couple's work I'm heavily influenced by the Gottman Method (focus on understanding your partner and managing conflict).
In our work together you can expect to leave each session with a greater understanding of how your mind works. Not only will you have a deeper understanding of yourself, but you'll be able to communicate your needs effectively. I provide the accountability needed to help you focus on making small changes, consistently. My purpose on earth is to help you create the life and relationships you desire.
