About Me

Hello! My name is Larissa Rzemienski and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and School Counselor in the state of Arizona. I attended Arizona State University for my Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 1998 and Master of Counseling degree in 2001. I also have an M.B.A. in Marketing and Ed.S. degree in Educational Leadership.

I have been working as a counselor for over 20 years, and I have had a wide array of experiences during this time. I have served as a suicide hotline supervisor, probation counselor, tele-health counselor (marriage, individual, and teen counseling), and high school guidance counselor. In addition to counseling, I also teach Master of Counseling college students and I am a yoga teacher. I have worked with clients of all ages, and my specialties include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, meaning of life, grief, and much more. I really enjoy working in the telehealth field, and I have been seeing clients virtually for about 4 years. Telehealth is a great modality for treatment as it provides convenience and various options for services. In terms of the treatment modalities that I utilize, I tend to use Client Centered Therapy, Existential Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Reality Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The approach that I use for each client will differ depending on the needs of the client. I am available via messenger, phone, or video.

In my personal life, I enjoy practicing and teaching yoga, learning about psychology and history, hiking, hanging out with my pet rabbit, investing, and spending time with my college age daughter. I reside in Phoenix, Arizona.

I look forward to talking with you!

Larissa Rzemienski, Ed.S., M.C., L.P.C.

Larissa is so dedicated to her clients and offers much patience with her practice. I was able to make much progress while working with her, but I especially appreciate how much self-accountability I gained through our sessions. She is truly incredible!

She pushes me to figure out what I can do better or differently in any situation and also to consider what work I can do ahead of time, while also supporting me and understanding my feelings and concerns. She is a true partner in my emotional and mental health and I have learned a lot from her.

Very conscientious and compassionate listener. She has assisted me tremendously while going through significant personal and professional changes.

Game changer in the therapy world. So glad I found not only my person but a friend to confide in. As a busy mom of four kids, it is incredibly helpful to have a person to balance with. And I don't have to leave my house! I don't have to find babysitters. I recommend a BetterHelp and Larissa to everyone I come in contact with who may need a little extra.

She's extremely patient and wise. I never feel like a burden to her. I'm thankful that she's helping me through a healing process.

I was extremely nervous about starting therapy and have been putting it off for awhile. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but Rzemienski has been wonderfully professional, friendly and knowledgable.

Amazing counselor! So down to earth and she just "gets" it. I love working with her and we just click. She offers so many resources and she is honest with what her specialties are and isn't overconfident in her abilities like other therapists I had. If she doesn't know something, she will go out of her way to learn more. She truly goes above and beyond. This is best therapy experience I have ever had in life. Thank you BetterHelp! More importantly, thank you Larissa!

Honestly the best experience I’ve had with a therapist ever. I’ve never had counseling before and I was scared to open up but Larissa made it so easy and simple. I never felt judged or felt like a burden. We work on my goals everyday and I feel hope again in getting better. Thank you BetterHelp.
