About Me

Hello. My name is Coryna (pronounced Co-ree-na). I have worked as a clinical and medical social worker for 25 years. I am from Seattle, Washington, originally, and then have lived in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Wichita, Kansas, Spokane, Washington, and now live near Portland, Oregon. I have a Masters degree in social work from University of Oklahoma and a clinical social work license as well. I have a Masters degree in Healthcare Administration from Pacific University.

My gift and my heart is in working with people that are dealing with health problems and their families and caregivers. I have worked in senior health care, home health, hospice and case management. I have experience with aging, chronic illness, terminal illness, caregiving, grief, coping with stress, self-care, depression, anxiety, adjustment disorder, hoarding, intimacy, and relationships.

My style is warm and open. People often say to me that they feel comfortable talking with me about intimate and scary topics that they haven't shared with others. I believe that people do have many of the answers that they are looking for and I am just here to listen and guide people through the process of finding what works for them.

I would love to meet you and support you as you work through your issues. Please introduce yourself. Let's work together to get you to where you want to be.

Coryna did a great job of allowing me space to feel heard and understood. She created a space where I felt supported in getting help and advice with managing day-to-day life challenges, as well as ADHD-specific tips that were very useful to me. She did a great job checking in with me every week to make sure we focused the sessions on what would be most useful for me. She was able to listen and validate, as well as provide relevant advice that I could apply and try out right away.

She was wonderful my son and I were having issues around the holidays over family and she was able to help us put some boundaries in place and be able to talk to each other I really appreciate what she’s done Theresa Vanek
