Alina will support you in discovering your strengths and work with you to formulate and achieve your goals to heal from emotional pain. She recognizes that sometimes people get stuck in obstructive patterns that seem difficult to change and negatively impact relationships with family, friends and colleagues. In a non-judgmental, compassionate, safe, culturally sensitive environment, she will work with you to clarify what you want to change, recognize what no longer works for you, promote personal growth and help you create new life affirming patterns.
Alina focuses on a collaborative, person-centered approach to therapeutic process and incorporates motivational interviewing techniques, cognitive behavioral theory and a strength-based perspective when working with individuals and couples. She believes that therapy is a partnership and she enjoys walking with people on their path to self-exploration and developing their optimal selves.
