Galina Storozhenko

Becoming a Relationship Therapist

I have done one to one counseling extensively including crisis intervention and have found that often what brings individuals to a crisis is unresolved issues in their most significant relationships and the need to bring couple’s counseling to help individuals overall in their lives.

Counseling Philosophy

I am eclectic in my philosophical approach but I believe in the client driven model as therapy needs to illicit client buy-in order to achieve their goals. I believe that working through adversity is the best type of emotional growth.

Counseling Style and Strengths

I am motivated by the success of my clients. I am a bilingual therapist, English/Russian. I came to this country in the 90s as a child from Ukraine. My specialties include bereavement counseling as well as counseling in the Russian language. For many years I have provided counseling on an emergency basis in both hospice care and in the medical hospital setting. I find my clients are immediately at ease around me because of my ability to provide an open and accepting space for processing disappointments and frustrations.

Professional Counseling Background

I have worked in outpatient and inpatient psychiatric institutions. I have worked with individuals one to one, dyads, triads, and groups. I am comfortable in most environments and can easliy hold space for any kind of trauma or challenge a client presents with.
