About Me

Hi and Welcome,

If you are exploring Better Help, it is likely that you are struggling with something significant in your life. You’ve come to the right place. It takes a strong person to seek out counseling and support to initiate the change you are looking for. I would love to help you get there.

My name is Anna Klimachefsky. I’m a General Practitioner Licensed Clinical Social Worker with the specialization in emotional/behavioral health. I worked in a field for 13 years. I have experience working with people from all different backgrounds who are struggling with a wide variety of challenges. Much of my experience has been working with people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, relationship problems and difficulties of life. I also worked with the individuals who were affected by the loved one's mental illness or life struggles.

One if the important aspect of therapy is the relationship between the individual and the therapist. My approach is different with every individual, depending on their specific needs.

I can interact with you in whatever manner you are most comfortable. I am available to you via phone , text or video. I generally check messages here two times a day, Mon-Sun. I do appreciate your patience when it takes a bit longer at times, as I may be tending to other clients or professional/person responsibilities..

Hope to work with you soon!

Anna is super nice and supportive. This is my first time doing therapy, and I feel safe and comfortable. As you describe your issues with her, she takes the time to re-describe the situation in a way that helps you understand what happened and how you felt in that moment, which I think is really important to help you in your journey.

When I signed up for betterhelp, I was matched with Anna. I do feel like the website did a very good job in selecting someone that I felt comfortable with. It was very easy for me to talk to Anna from the start and appreciate that my needs for self improvement are very well met in talking to her. I like the tools Anna offer me to help with everyday stressors and triggers. I feel like I've come a long way since starting talking with her.

Anna is very easy to talk to. Glad to be finally getting counseling on my own terms. She is helpful with managing my goals and anxiety about life, and supportive in achieving them. Still have more things to work through but I am hopeful :)

Anna has been such a great outlet. Talking with her has provided the much needed guidance I was looking for. She truly understood my issue and broke it down in such a simple way. I can't believe I was overlooking some of the basic root causes. But she turned the light bulb on in my head. :)

Anna is a thoughtful, caring and relatable counselor. She helped me through a very stressful and uncertain time. Sometimes it can be hard to open up and confide in a therapist because it's an interaction with someone unknown. Anna made me feel comfortable and at ease every session. She's truly wonderful!

Anna was there to give help and guidance to me in my time of need. She is caring, understanding, smart, and allows you to be heard. She made it comfortable to talk about my issues, which is something I've struggled with my whole life. She's taught me the skills to allow me to make the right choices and changes in my life. I could not have asked to be matched with a better counselor.

Anna is very friendly and a great listener. She always makes sure to provide useful resources to help tackle whatever I’m struggling with. She is very encouraging, and pushes me to challenge my anxiety. I have found her counselling very helpful.

Written by S.A. on Mar 07, 2021 after counseling with Anna for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

I have only been talking to Anna Klimachefsky for a very short amount of time. Although I was the one who signed up for Better Help, I was struggling to accept that I needed to actually talk to someone in order to get some help/guidance. I cancelled my first session and when I rescheduled I had major anxiety. The moment she called me for my session felt relieved.
Anna has a very kind, caring, and calming way about her. It feels like talking to a friend. She doesn’t judge and always has helpful suggestions and recommendations. I am greatly satisfied!

Thanks Anna!

I’ve been in therapy with Anna for about a month, almost two months, now and wow! I’ve struggled with addiction for the past 4-6 years and with Anna’s help and guidance I am in a much better place and maintaining my sobriety. She is kind, introspective, and above all an amazing listener!
