About Me

Welcome! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in a state of Connecticut. I earned my Master of Social Work degree from Columbia University School of Social Work. My concentration was clinical practice in health and mental health settings. For the past 10 years I have been working in a hospital setting. During this time I have worked with individuals and families facing serious illness, life altering diagnosis, grief, substance abuse, homelessness as well as various other life transitions, depression, anxiety and panic attacks. Prior to that I worked at an outpatient mental health setting providing individual and family counseling and psychotherapy.

My therapeutic approach focuses on empowering my clients to utilize personal strengths in order to make positive changes in their lives. I use a variety of approaches including Interpersonal, CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, motivational interviewing and trauma-informed care in my work to address client’s unique needs and learning style.

I look forward to working with you!

Inna is an amazing therapist. She is very easy to talk to and really tries to understand you and your story. She’s open to talk about anything and gives thoughtful, unique advice. She’s very good at responding promptly through messaging. She makes my voice feel heard and validated.

Inna is very patient and says what needs to be said at the right times. She gets deep into it but in a very non-invasive way. I find working with Inna is improving my mental health.

Inna Dobkin is a wonderful therapist. This is my first time doing therapy and although I hesitated for a long time to seek help, I have no regrets of joining BetterHelp, thanks to her. She is extremely knowledgeable, kind and very attentive. I feel very comfortable speaking to her and appreciate the advice she gives to work towards solutions, as well as truly listening and understanding me as an individual. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a great therapist.
