I am a Marriage Family and Child Therapist licensed in California and Colorado with over 25 years of experience working in this field. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, life challenges. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is eclectic, warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Vladka is an excellent and very experienced therapist who has a very straightforward style. I have appreciated working with her and always felt safe and in very capable hands. She has a great deal of training and can work in multiple states, I highly recommend her.

Vladka is an empathetic, self-described "eclectic therapist" who uses a variety of therapeutic models and concepts to work with her clients. She has provided tremendous support and encouragement, and helped me navigate the most challenging family situation I've encountered in my lifetime. She's become a trusted confidant, and offered helpful advice and a caring ear. I highly recommend her - she is knowledgeable, kind, patient, and insightful.

Am so grateful for her follow through and very “present” approach. Knowing she’s there in my corner has gotten me through darker moments as well given me new perspective that I think will be helpful in future.
