Hello! I’m Yana and my pronouns are she/her. First of all, congratulations on taking the first step towards healing. It takes a lot of courage to make that step. I am here to walk alongside you and to create a safe space where you can feel comfortable being unapologetically you. My approach is person-centered and strengths-based, and I utilize Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), attachment theory, and mindfulness practices. I also realize that every person is unique and tailor my approach to the individual. I have a special interest working with young adults, individuals struggling with eating concerns, body image, and self-worth. I strive to utilize HAES (Health at Every Size), body neutrality, and anti-oppressive perspective. I also work with those who have experienced sexual assault. As the daughter of first generation Ukrainian immigrant parents, I recognize how challenging it can be to hold different cultural identities. I want everyone to feel welcome in the therapy space regardless of their race, gender, sexual or cultural identity. I work with adolescents and adults of all ages and backgrounds. I would love to be a part of your journey, and to cultivate a space of warmth, humor, and safety.
