Valentina is currently doing all telehealth.
MY EDUCATION, EXPERIENCE, AND TRAINING:
I am a Ukrainian therapist who is actively supporting those impacted by the Russian war in Ukraine. Though I speak Russian, I was born in Ukraine and have family and friends there who are currently being impacted. I understand the complexities of the situation. Despite my lack of ability to speak Ukrainian, I am here to support those impacted in any way that I can. My caseload is generally full, but I may be able to make exceptions for folks who are being impacted during the Russian aggression against Ukraine.
Я український терапевт, який активно підтримує тих, хто постраждав від російської війни в Україні. Хоча я розмовляю російською, я народилася в Україні і маю там сім’ю та друзів, які зараз також страждають вiд росiйської навали. Я розумію всю складність ситуації та нездатність розмовляти українською, однак я тут щоб підтримати як можу тих, хто постраждав. Загалом мiй розклад завжди заповнений, але можливо, я зможу зробити виключення для людей, які постраждали під час російської агресії проти України.
I received my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2011 and began working with individuals in the community as a psychosocial rehab specialist. I graduated with my Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2015. I have been a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Oregon since 2018 and the state of Washington since 2019. Throughout my experience I have provided individual and group therapy in educational and agency settings. My work has largely focused on helping teens and adults navigate through various challenges including anxiety, depression, family issues, LGBTQ issues, life stage transitions, and trauma. I really enjoy working with issues around multicultural challenges (first generation, immigration, cultural identity) as well.
