I am licensed in the state of Ohio with over 4 years of professional work experience. I specialize in working with clients who experienced trauma and abuse, but work with many other concerns as well. I believe in creating a safe place for my clients so that they can share their story. I do best with clients who are prepared to “do the work” that therapy requires. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

Olena takes the time to listen, and doesn't seem fake when she reacts. She lets me talk and cry and get out what I need to vent, but then offers suggestions on ways to help heal and process everything. I feel safe talking to her.
