About me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor(LMHC) in New York with over 5 years experience. I have worked with a variety of populations: teenagers; couples counseling, family counseling, adults, children with autism and adults with developmental disabilities. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including: anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, ADHD, struggles in relationships, grief, and trauma. My therapeutic approach is generally eclectic, but I like to focus on CBT due to the nature of the progress it provides, but I will adjust my approach with each client as to what will benefit them.

I am highly empathic and an analytical professional who is motivated, caring, and determined in counseling diverse populations in leading healthy lives. I am confident in providing clients with support by validating feelings, actively listening, and using CBT to maintain and improve overall wellness. I am skilled in effectively identifying client's struggles and need for change in daily routine by using problem solving techniques in order to prevent relapse.

Lamina is amazing and always understands when I am uncomfortable and tries to get to the root of the issue.

Written on Feb 03, 2022 after therapy with Iamina for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and trauma and abuse

I feel extremely lucky to have been paired with Iamina right off the bat. She has been extremely helpful and makes me feel very comfortable. I even look forward to my sessions with her because I feel more like I’m talking to a friend more than a therapist. She’s fantastic!

She is the best I have ever had and has changed my life

Written on Oct 24, 2021 after therapy with Iamina for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Better help has been such a positive experience for me, but my experience with Iamina has been the best thing that’s happened to me in years. She’s been a huge part in restoring happiness back into my life. Iamina pays close attention to detail and often correlates recent experiences with childhood ones and makes the connection to show why one can have similar feelings many years later. Like many other reviews, she doesn't feel like a therapist, but more of a best friend who genuinely cares about your well being and seeing you progress as quickly as you can. I fight fires for a living and have always been there to save other peoples lives, and Iamina has been there to help save mine. Not all heroes wear bunker gear and run into burning buildings to save lives, she’s helped save mine with just a pair of headphones and the desire to help me find happiness again.

Iamina is great! I feel very comfortable talking to her, and, most importantly, not judged in anyway. She understands that I'm a person who will make mistakes and know what's best for myself in certain situations, but wouldn't hesitate to tell me if she thinks I need to change my patterns of behavior.
