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 was a patient and accommodating therapist to me during a time I was greatly struggling with. She gave me validation for what I was feeling as well as being a good listener to some of the obstacles I was feeling. I recommend Anna for anybody that needs a nurturing, yet accountable therapist.

Anna is one of the most caring and compassionate people I have ever worked with. She truly understood what my needs were and helped me through so many obstacles in my life. I truly am grateful to have had such an amazing therapist such as her.

I came to better-help when I was finally ready to take on the work to better myself, but I knew my schedule was going to be challenging to commit to a 'traditional' therapist. In the past, I would begin therapy and had a difficult time connecting with them. I would feel judged, shameful, and belittled. I was nervous to start, and Anna made it seamless for me. I expressed myself authentically of what my needs and goals were, and she never once made me feel anything I stated above. She is empathetic, personable, relatable, and she gently pushed me when needed. I look forward to speaking with her weekly. She has helped me tremendously to be kinder to myself, create boundaries, and work on my goals. I have truly enjoyed my time with her, and I am beyond grateful for her.

I had a wonderful time working with Anna. She is extremely easy to talk to and always comes to the appointment with a smile on her face. She was very knowledgeable in immigrant issues as well as LGBTQ issues. She makes you feel safe and like you're not alone in your path. She will share her personal experiences, and relate it to the topic of discussion. She will always check in with you at the beginning of the appointment and build off of what was last discussed. She is an absolute pleasure to work with.

Anna has been supportive and open since day one. It's always great to have someone who can be the voice of reason in a turbulent times. Anna makes sure you're making progress throughout the sessions and is always eager to help. Her positivity is infectious and transcends to you in a way where there's always a bright side to things.
