About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in California with 5 years of clinical experience counseling individuals in private practice, non-profit organizations, and community clinics. I have worked with clients on a variety of mental health issues and personal issues including but not limited to anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, addictions, relationship issues, sleeping issues, pregnancy and parenting concerns, sleeping issues, etc. I love helping clients transition into new careers and discover their purpose in life.

My goal in my counseling is to help my clients live deeply fulfilling lives and reach their full potentials. How that goal is achieved depends on my client's individual needs. I listen attentively and with compassion to concerns and collaborate with my clients on meeting their unique therapy objectives.

My therapeutic orientation comes from a background in Jungian therapy, existential view of life, mindfulness training, extensive hypnotherapy experience, and evidence-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy experiential processes. My work always includes a view of transpersonal aspects of reality including expansion of your view beyond the ego-personality and achieving higher states of consciousness.

I believe that if you are here reading this, you are on your personal development journey and are ready to choose the direction of your life more intentionally and with greater clarity. I’m here to guide you on your path to fulfillment.

She is absolutely amazing, with only 5 sessions so far, I already feel like ive learned SO much about myself. I am so excited to keep working with her.

I have nothing but great things to say about Olena Prokopenko. She is very professional and is helping me deal with my decade long battle with severe insomnia. I am very optimistic about the future.

Olena is a great listener and takes note of every concern that I am mentioning to her. Thank you Olena.

I have only had two sessions with Olena but so far I have truly enjoyed our discussions. She is kind, knowledgeable, and responsive.

Olena has a real calming wisdom about her. She has a great memory for what you tell her so that she can process it and provide truly meaningful insight and actionable advice to improve upon the things that brought you here in the first place. I think I would have been discouraged if I was initially grouped with a Therapist that I didn’t “click with.”

I am thrilled to continue the work so that I can better understand how my experience has made me who I am today and how a can grow into a more fulfilled human, better equipped for whatever life throws my way.
